Chasing Summer 2015 Medical Update

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – MONDAY AUGUST 10, 2015

At this weekend’s Chasing Summer Music Festival in Calgary, Alberta, several patients were transported from the festival site to local medical facilities for a variety of medical issues, including suspected substance use, dehydration, and physical injuries.

With several hundred event security staff and volunteers onsite, along with our onsite medical team, pay duty AHS EMT, pay duty Calgary Police Service officers, and on-site ambulance, our comprehensive emergency response plan allowed our team to effectively respond to any incidents as they arose in a quick and efficient manner.  

Our policy of offering free drinking water to patrons helps reduce cases of dehydration. We encouraged patrons to bring empty bottles for filling with them to the festival, and had 24 free water spouts available for their use. If they chose, patrons could also purchase water and other beverages from all food and beverage outlets on-site.  

Festival producers at Union Events would like to express our support for all of our patrons and wish those few who needed further attention a quick and full recovery.  

Safety is a year-round topic for Union Events, Canada’s largest independent concert and special event producer. Our safety team works closely with local emergency services on a constant basis – including police, fire, and medical, as well as other community stakeholders – to continually improve upon an already comprehensive emergency response plan.

EARLY WRISTBAND REDEMPTION

On THURSDAY AUGUST 6, we are pleased to be offering WEEKEND PASS (GA and VIP) holders the opportunity to exchange their ticket for their wristband at the following locations:

 

- FORT CALGARY (Festival Site) – 12 NOON to 7 pm

- MARQUEE BEER MARKET & STAGE – 8 pm to 12 am

- BESPOKE NIGHTCLUB – 9 pm to 12 am

 

You can only pick up your own wristband – more than one wristband will not be given out, as you will be required to put on the wristband at time of pick up.

Getting your wristband early means you can skip the redemption line on the weekend, and go straight to the main entrance!

Early pickup is only available for weekend passes. Single day tickets can only be redeemed on the day of the festival they are valid for.

PIXMOB LED bracelets cannot be picked up at this time – they will be available during the festival at the PixMob tent in the vendor area.

Questions concerning the festival can be answered HERE.
