In addition to the arrests, 22 attendees were ejected due to intoxication or disorderly conduct. Two young men are also facing more serious charges, being found with 35 ecstasy pills and a substantial sum of cash.

This news follows several large scale arrests at the Melbourne and Sydney Stereosonic festivals in 2013, as well as a death attributed to ecstasy at this past September's Defcon 1 event, which also took place in Sydney.
