A number of staff members working at Tomorrowland electronic music festival confessed that they deal drugs during the event, an undercover media report revealed Thursday.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, festival employees said that despite Tomorrowland’s strict anti-drug policy, several members of staff manage to bring illicit substances onsite.
Speaking to Belgian outlet VTM news, festival workers said some only applied for a job because they were looking to sell drugs on the festival’s grounds.
Sixty-one drug dealers and hundreds of users were caught in the latest edition of the electronic music festival, which draws hundreds of thousands to the town of Boom every summer.
One account described how one dealer had “36 pills, 4 grams of coke, 6 grams of speed and 4 grams of ketamine,” while others said that the checks were poorly enforced.
The outlet said that Tomorrowland representatives refused to speak in front of the camera and that they said that staff were thoroughly checked before and after the festival as well as in the campsite and at crew entrances.
“We are convinced that this misplaced behaviour of some crew members is very exceptional,” the outlet cites the organisation as saying.
