POPHARS: Drugs at the festivals: Perceptions of Prevention harm reduction care, and law enforcement strategies

The aim of the POPHARS project is to build further on the knowledge and findings of the ongoing ALAMA-nightlife project which kicked-off in september 2016 and runs until the end of August 2019. The ALAMA-nightlife project focuses on the dynamics and consequences of young adults’ substance use pathways in a European nightlife context and is funded by BELSPO (cf. ERANID network).

The general objective of POPHARS is to obtain a comprehensive understanding of how festival attendees and festival stakeholders perceive drug related interventions implemented at music festivals, and to provide knowledge on the users’ perspective, facilitating well considered interventions. For this purpose we divide the study into two parts (while also interconnecting these parts along the line to look at matches and mismatches between both):

  • Part 1: Gaining insight in the perceptions of prevention, harm reduction, and law enforcement strategies and perceptions of substance use (norms) by festival attendees.
  • Part 2: Gaining insights in the perceptions of the implemented drug related interventions and perceptions of substance use (norms) by stakeholders from prevention, harm reduction, care, and law enforcement strategies, and other festival stakeholders.
