Some of us more than others have had encounters with police at festivals that have ended rather poorly. As the festival season is kicking off for a massive summer, the “festival lawer” over at Copblock has got you covered to keep you on your toes if you run into a problem with enforcement.
I’m not one to rebel against all authority or shout for anarchy, but this lawyer provides some general good tips that anyone should know in a public setting, like knowing police cannot search you out of the blue. Also, if you per chance get arrested or detained, you need to ask why you are there. At the end of the day, just be smart and try your best to avoid these sort of encounters with police!
Yet, if you and the police aren’t most fond of each other, then read more from the festival lawyer to help keep you a little more protected and knowledgeable before attending these festivals!
