FREE WATER REFILL STATIONS
Drinking plenty of water and keeping hydrated throughout the entire weekend is crucial to your health and well being. It is important to drink water at regular intervals, especially in hot weather. In addition to bottled water that will be available for purchase, free water will be available! Any water bottle purchased inside the event or any other empty beverage container can be refilled. The free Water Refill Stations will be centrally located and clearly marked on the festival map. The stations will dispense municipal water that has undergone state of the art filtration including ultraviolet sterilization. Insomniac will be offering reusable Insomniac water bottles for purchase that can be brought into all Insomniac festivals empty upon entry and then be filled at the refill stations. Get hydrated and back on the dance floor!
