■ FALLS Festival punters have overwhelmingly backed a growing push for pill testing at music festivals following a wave of deadly overdoses. Revellers at Falls Festival said pill testing was urgently needed to save lives after five fatal overdoses at festivals in NSW and Victoria. “We need it 100 per cent to save lives,” said Tweed Coast woman Alyse Roberts, 23, who was at Falls with mates Laura Elliott, Keneeka Gorter and Bella Staracek. “Pills might be illegal but it isn’t going to stop people from doing them.” The State Government has previously ruled out pill testing for festivals, despite a successful trial at a festival in Canberra. However Premier Gladys Berejiklian has since softened her stance, claiming on Thursday she would consider pill testing in NSW if she was provided with evidence that it would save lives.
