Subject: Updated Treatment Guidance for Providers During the 2017 Music Festival Season
The Michigan Regional Poison Control Center at Children’s Hospital of Michigan has updated treatment guidance for pre-hospital, healthcare and public health professionals during the 2017 Music Festival Season.
The 11th annual Movement Electronic Music Festival is scheduled Memorial Day weekend, May 27th through 29th, at Hart Plaza. Over 100,000 participants from around the globe attended last year.
Some of the more popular music festivals include:
11th annual Movement Electronic Music Festival May 27th-29th, at Hart Plaza.
Chevrolet Belle Island Grand Prix will be June 2-4 on Belle Island.
Lakes of Fire (Rothbury) June 14-18

Detroit River Days June 23-25
Common Ground in Lansing July 6-9
Hoedown in Detroit June 30

The expected circulating drugs are unlikely to be significantly different from other years. Certain festivals are associated with specific drugs or combinations such as the Movement Festival tends to have more of the designer agents and the Hoedown is usually associated with heavy ethanol use. Those festivals in downtown urban areas will continue to reflect the usual regional substances found in that geographic locale such as ethanol, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and carisoprodol.
The attached document provides information about detailed pre-hospital and hospital treatment for exposure to recreational drugs and alcohol.
EMS personnel supporting these events should review and follow applicable state-approved EMS Protocols and local medical control.
