WHILE many danced away their cares at Splendour in the Grass, others created more for themselves.
A large number of drug detections took place over the course of the festival, with 65 on Wednesday, 34 detections on Thursday and 60 detections on Friday. Attempts to contact police about incidents on Saturday and Sunday were not successful.
Drugs detected included Cannabis, MDMA, and a variety of powders, including ice, speed and cocaine. The number of drug detections that resulted in charges being laid is not yet known.
Traffic delays were also an issue, with Live Traffic NSW warning patrons of the music festival and anyone travelling in any direction along the Pacific Highway at Yelgun and Tweed Valley Way to allow extra travel time and to expect delays.
Traffic delays are expected to continue today as festival goers make their way home from the event.
