Aussie festival targeted by drug squad

By
Police chiefs have said that they are going to come down hard on drugs and anti-social behaviour at the Soundwave Music Festival.

Sniffer dogs and other police resources will reportedly be present at the Australian music event, which takes place at Sydney's Olympic Park this Sunday.

New South Wales Police event commander Detective Superintendent Greg Rolph told AAP: "There will be drug detection dogs as well as a large number of overt and covert police resources aimed at catching those taking or dealing illegal drugs.

"Recreational drugs can be incredibly dangerous and anyone bringing them to the event can expect to be caught."

This year's festival features acts such as Iron Maiden, Queens of the Stone Age and Slash.
