  1. Opinions on alcohol use and alcohol policies were assessed through the following statements: S1) A good night out means getting drunk. S2) It is acceptable for people under 18 to buy or be bought alcohol. S3) Drunk people ruin a night out. S4) Drunk people should be able to enter the festival area. S5) People who are drunk should not be able to obtain more alcohol. S6) Not providing people who are already drunk with more alcohol would improve nights out. Frequencies of agreement are presented for the overall sample (left), within each blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level category (middle) and within each gender (right). Data represent the number of people (n) and percentage. The effects of gender were analyzed using Pearson’s chi-squared test
