British Festivals Ban Legal Highs
Glastonbury has joined a growing list of UK festivals that have banned the sale of legal highs by on-site traders at their events this summer, NME reports.

The decision comes after a reported 80 percent increase in deaths related to legal highs in 2013. Ben Turner, the co-founder and vice-chairman of the Association of Independent Festivals has issued the following statement about the situation:

"Legal highs are a serious concern for any festival organiser and the issue is only going to get bigger. Banning it at our festivals is only part of the battle however, we need to make fans aware of the dangers of legal highs and help them make safer choices when having fun on-site."

The festivals participating in the ban are: Glastonbury, T in the Park, Bestival, Lovebox, Global Gathering, Secret Garden Party, Sonisphere, We Are FSTVL, 2000trees, ArcTanGent, Kendal Calling, Festibelly, Blissfields, Truck, Brownstock, Y Not Festival, Tramlines, Belladrum Tartan Heart, Leefest, Nozstock, Wakestock, Shambala, Glasgow Summer Sessions, Parklife, Eden Sessions.
