[NME] UK festivals should let people test their drugs before taking them, say health experts
Several festivals including Reading and Leeds are already planning to introduce drug-testing tents.
Health experts want the UK’s leading music festivals want to allow revellers to test their drugs before they take them.
Following a successful trial at last year’s Secret Garden Party, a number of UK festivals including Reading and Leeds are hoping to introduce drug-testing in 2017. If approved, the drug-testing tents will be run by The Loop, an organisation which specialises in forensic testing of drugs that are seized at UK festivals and nightclubs.
