Your enjoyment of the Ultimate Music Experience is our first priority, and the times of your life are straight ahead. Enter our beachside world with a reminder to have fun and be safe. The health of our Disco dancers is of utmost importance to us.
The most rewarding moments are those we share with our community of fellow music lovers. Few things in life are better than the feeling you get when hearing the tunes you love with friends old and new, so stay present and listen to your personal rhythm. Make the most of UME '17 by using the following safety information this spring break including ample water and relaxation.
All that non-stop dancing and vigorous physical activity can lead to dehydration and overheating. By all means have the time of your life, but remember to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water. Indulge in a nice cold glass of ice water between your adult beverage of choice. The more hydrated you are, the more fun you can have longer!
Medical personnel at the First Aid tent also serves sports drink, free of charge, to replenish the body's electrolytes.
Your parents were onto something when they slathered you in sunscreen during family vacations. While we love that it's going to be nice and toasty on South Padre Island, it's important to remember that the sun takes a serious toll on our skin. When you catch some rays at UME, do it with some SPF to score a golden tan instead of a not-so-nice burn, and protect yourself from the sun's harmful rays.
