Emergency contraception to be made available to festival-goers

The Medicine Man tent will provide festival-goers with help and advice

Emergency contraception will be made available to festival-goers at events across the UK this summer.

According to consumer research undertaken last month (June), one in six young people in Britain have had a one-night stand at a festival, while over a third of people asked had kissed someone in a festival field.

Now, it has been confirmed The Medicine Man pharmacy will be attending festivals across the UK to provide festival-goers with help and advice related to unprotected sex and other medical concerns.


The travelling pharmacy will give fans a range of options, including the morning after pill ellaOne, which prevents pregnancy and is said to be the most effective morning after pill. The pill is available without a prescription. The Medicine Man will be present at Bestival, Rize, and Leeds Festival.

Earlier this year, it was revealed which festivals you’re most likely to get laid at. SpaSeekers asked 500 festival-goers questions about the cleanliness, sleeping habits and sexual activity at the events they attended throughout the summer.

The study showed that music fans atĀ Bestival admitted to having sex with on average two peopleĀ over the festival weekend, while those at Parklife were most likely to kiss someone, kissing on average 2.17 people over the weekend, followed by the 2.11 people kissed at Wireless festival.
