It seems Sydney’s Field Day festival was appropriately named, as it gave local law enforcement a field day of their own.
A grand total of 214 attendees were arrested on drug-related charges throughout the festival, which featured performances from Dillon Francis, Cashmere Cat, & Danny Brown and boasted an attendance count of around 25,000 people. A drug-sniffing K-9 unit was largely responsible for the high number of drug-related arrests which, according to police, broke the record for any festival in the country. Sydney’s Chief Inspector, Stuart Bell, had this to say for ABC News:
The drug-dog operation this year resulted in the most arrests police have made in the history of the festival, which is extremely concerning and shows that some attendees are still not getting the message.
