Drug amnesty bins were put in place near the gates, with Premier Gladys Berejiklian encouraging festivalgoers to discard drugs with "no questions asked".

The drug amnesty bins were announced by the NSW government in December, allowing festivalgoers to discard illegal drugs without penalty.

The bins form part of the state government's response to recommendations made by deputy state coroner Harriet Grahame after an inquest into six MDMA-related deaths at NSW music festivals, including Ms Ross-King.

The coroner also recommended scrapping the use of sniffer dogs, and introducing pill testing, which is firmly opposed by the NSW premier.

No pill testing facilities were provided at the FOMO Festival in Sydney, with the ACT's Groovin the Moo being the only festival to have trialled the process.
