The promoters of Good Life and Frontier Touring have issued a statement following yesterday’s festival at Perth’s Claremont Showgrounds:

 

The safety of Good Life attendees and staff is our highest priority. Promoters do not condone violence of any kind, and take these issues extremely seriously.

 

Following the incident on site, the security guard in question was immediately attended to by medical teams and taken to hospital by an on-site ambulance for assessment. He was discharged a few hours later. Good Life promoters will continue to monitor his well-being. The incident is being investigated by the Police.

 

Good Life works months in advance of each city to put detailed security and contingency plans in place, working carefully with stakeholders to ensure the safety of our patrons. In Perth, this plan included:

 

  • An Event Operations Centre (EOC) comprising of an emergency management team of eight management personnel, with closed circuit CCTV monitoring the event operations

  • Consultation with WA Police on the event

  • 130 x licenced security personnel and an Event Safety officer

  • 1 x Standby Ambulance with Commander and 2 x paramedics

  • St John Medical team providing 3 x First Aid Posts, 14 x First Aid responders, 1 x Doctor, 2 x nurses, 2 x management staff, 1 x communications officers and 1 x Event Commander.

  • 24 x Red Frogs crowd care service staff and volunteers & chill out areas.

  • Free drinking water located throughout the venue and at stage barriers

 

All festivalgoers are checked for ID, age, breathalysed, undergo bag searches and wrist banded upon entry. Random drug testing is also conducted at the front entrance. There are no licensed bars on the premises, PA loops are utilised for entry and exit crowd control, with security in place until 30 minutes after the event. Red Frogs crowd care also enlist over 24 volunteers to be on call for any punters requiring assistance during the day.

 

To respect the privacy of the security guard, no further comments will be made.
