Harassment Policy
At Wild Roots, we are creating an inclusive environment for all people regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, ability, race, religion or social status. 

Everyone coming to Wild Roots Festival – whether to have fun or to work – should be able to do so in an atmosphere that is free of harassment, intimidation and antisocial or abusive behaviour.

If you are made to feel uncomfortable while at Wild Roots Festival, then we ask that you inform a member of staff or security as soon as possible. All information received will be dealt with sensitively and appropriately.

If anyone behaves in a way that goes against these values, Wild Roots Festival’s staff and security reserve the right to take any action they deem necessary or appropriate in the circumstances, including eviction from the Festival and/or reporting the matter to the relevant authorities.

Tent Safety
It’s important to look after your home for the weekend and stay safe. A tent can be destroyed by a fire in 60 seconds, so please don’t smoke in your tent or don’t use a naked flame for light. Always use a torch to navigate in the dark and always know how to escape in the event of a fire.  

Campervan Safety
Make sure you have fitted and tested your smoke alarms regularly and install a carbon monoxide alarm too. 

Never use a barbecue inside a tent or caravan. Instead, always ensure you use it in a well-ventilated area. The carbon monoxide they produce can cause serious short term and long term harm so let’s keep it all safe and secure by using them in the right way and space.

No, but we do have medical personnel on-site, so if you need assistance, let them know. Sligo University Hospital is 5 mins drive from the festival site.
If you are in the late stages of pregnancy, we advise you not to attend Wild Roots this year. If you still wish to attend, please remember the festival is set on 50-acres of farmland which means lots of walking in potentially slippy conditions.

When it comes to alcohol at Wild Roots, we are all about drinking in moderation. Make sure you stay hydrated to prevent dehydration.

You can bring alcohol on site at initial entry only. So this means once you get your wristband, you cannot bring in any more alcohol. Each person can bring 1 litre of a spirit or 24 cans or 2 litres of wine per person. This must be brought in on arrival, and once you get your wristband, you cannot bring in more.

It’s up to you to look after your stuff so don’t leave any valuables in your car in the car park. Wild Roots do not take any responsibility for loss or damage, and cars are parked at the owner’s risk.

Do not display your phone or wallet/purse in your back pocket, as this is an easy target for criminals.

If you witness anything suspicious or any criminal behaviour please report this to one of our staff members immediately.
