    Abstract

    The outdoor rock concert has been well established as an important feature in the life of young people both in this country and abroad. The frequent use of psychoactive chemicals at these large gatherings is to be anticipated, as shown by evaluations of such events in the past [1–3]. This phenomenon is concurrent with prevailing permissive attitudes of youth toward drug usage in our society. The evolution of the use of psychoactive drugs, especially the psychedelics, has been associated with the popularity of rock music.
