If you do become a victim of crime or if you see a crime happening – try and make sure you get a good look at them or their clothes, so that when you report them we have a good head start. Also, make a note of exactly where you are if you can.
Please then report the issue as soon as you can.
Information coming in live helps us and An Garda Síochána do something about it at the time, so please let us know about any problems as they happen. Let the nearest member of security or event staff know immediately.
KONNECT Festival is a day of huge fun and enjoyment. We don’t want that experience spoiled by anything happening to you or your stuff, so we’re offering this advice to help your weekend or day go with a swing and not a bump.
Most people are here to have a great time and make new friends, but there may be some people onsite who might take advantage of the relaxed atmosphere. Festivals can offer an easy target for career criminals and opportunists who know how attendees tick and KONNECT is sadly no exception.
- Make it difficult for criminals - be vigilant and beware of thieves.
- Quite simply – please DON’T BRING THEM. There is enough going on for you to be entertained without your ipod, laptop etc.
- Don’t carry anything in back pockets – especially at the stages, pockets with zips are better or a money belt.
- Don’t carry more money than you need to.
- Only bring the bank cards and keys that you need with you in case they get lost. Make a note of your bank card numbers and leave it at home to make cancellation easier if they do go missing.
Keep a record of your phone’s 15 digit serial number or IMEI number which is unique to each phone. Find it by keying in *#06#* or by looking behind the battery. This number should help An Garda Síochána trace ownership quickly.
Register the phone with your operator. If you report the phone stolen, the operator should then be able to bar your SIM card. Use the phone's security lock or pin number.
There are free apps to track your phone/tablet if it goes missing or gets stolen. Your device is tracked by GPS and can be located online and in some cases be locked remotely. If the phone/device is stolen you can pass this information to the An Garda Síochána.
For phones, go to the manufacturer's website and download a tracking/finding application. There are others available through app stores.
Keep your phone well hidden when you are not using it. Don’t wave your expensive phone around in a crowd when taking photos. It may catch the wrong person’s eye. There are career criminals doing a roaring trade in mobile phones stolen at events.
Make sure your mobile is fully charged before attending. The stages get busy throughout the day and you are more likely to need your phone to meet up with friends who might have wandered to the bar or food outlets.
Don’t leave anything valuable in your car – including sat navs, car stereos, cameras, CDs or mobile phones. Leave your glove compartment empty and open so that thieves can see they have nothing to break in for.
Please mind your ticket.
We are not responsible for any possessions left at the cloakroom, Belongings will be left here at your own risk.
If you have lost your ticket you must wait until the end of the event to receive your belongings after we are convinced with your description of them.
