Police are “disappointed and shocked” by the number of people found with drugs at NSW electronic festival Subsonic.
During a police operation at the festival yesterday they charged 20 with drug-related offences including a 30 year-old Sydney man who was said to be in possession of “an indictable quantity” of LSD.
“Police are disappointed and shocked with the number of people carrying drugs and personally putting their own health and the health of others at risk,” Superintendent Chris Craner said in a statement.
“Consuming a prohibited drug is extremely dangerous – you don’t know what is in the drug, how and where it has been manufactured, or what effects it can have on your body.”
The festival is now in its ninth year but police say that “illegal behaviour” could put the future of events in the area “in serious jeopardy”.
Subsonic’s grounds are in Monkerai which is located between Dungog and Gloucester in NSW’s Hunter Region.
This year the festival boasted a lineup that included Seth Troxler, Ben UFO and Jimmy Edgar.
