Feel the Beat and Dance Responsibly!
We’re about to whisk off to a tropical getaway this weekend on South Padre Island for Isla Del Sol Fest, but before we meet at Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark and Peninsula Island Resort & Spa, we’ve got some helpful tips and information to make sure you and your friends stay safe and responsible at this year’s Labor Day weekend event.
There will be a lot of dancing at this year’s event and sometimes people will get sick from overheating and dehydration. We encourage you to drink lots of water, but remember drinking too much water can be dangerous! Accidents surrounding music events have been associated with low levels of electrolytes that are lost along with water when one becomes dehydrated. Such low levels of electrolytes, especially salt, can lead to brain swelling, seizures, heart problems and even death. So be sure to alternate between water and sports drinks that will be provided for you.
Find Your Buddy
Isla Del Sol Fest brings thousands of amazing people from across the world, so it could be really easy to get separated from your group due to the sheer size of the event. Always keep track of where your friends are by setting up meeting points and sticking together. Look out for one another. If you and your friends have been sweating, grab some water for the group to replenish nutrients lost – you can’t live off dancing alone. We will have personnel stationed around the grounds, so be sure to ask for help if you or one of your friends needs it.
We will have world renowned artists pumping great music all night, so be sure to wear something comfortable, lightweight and easy to dance in. Dark colors absorb heat rays, so avoid wearing all dark clothes. You should also steer away from heavy fabrics and faux furs, always remembering that comfortable tennis shoes are the best option on the dance floor.
Is There A Doctor In The House?
Medical personnel will not only be readily accessible but ready to assist you at any time in the medical tent. From Band-Aids to aspirin, assistance is available to you should you need anything at all. Gatorade will also be made available upon request. If you are feeling unwell, seek medical attention immediately. Your health and safety is more important than waiting for the drop.
