NSW Police ran drug operations at a number of festivals in Sydney over the weekend, resulting in 150 busts.

A series of festivals and large concerts across Sydney were targeted by police: Saturday’s Days Like This festival was hit the hardest, and saw 97 charges of drug possession, and two charges of drug supply.

Moore Park, which hosted two separate events, was the site of a drug dog operation which nabbed 38 people for illegal drug possession.

Finally, ten underage people were caught with drugs at an event at Olympic Park.

ABC points out that, with a capacity of 5,000, 2% of attendance at Days Like This were charged.
