Sports drinks like PowerAde, Gatorade, etc. contain electrolytes that can help keep your body running smoothly. If you’re feeling drained and think that water isn’t enough, stop by one of our Medical tents and we’ll get you feeling like yourself again in no time.

Don't Get Hungry

  • We have worked hard to provide some of the best of Bay Area chefs and restaurants for you to enjoy at XOXO. Take advantage of these amazing eateries. Please make sure you are eating at least 3 meals a day to give your body enough energy to get through the day and party through the night.

Buddy System

  • Staying with your friends can be tough at times, so plan a meet up point should you get separated. As your XOXO friends grow, make sure you keep track of those you came with.

If you see something, say something

  • Staying safe means looking out for one another. If something just doesn’t look right, let the nearest staff member know and we will check it out. All of our uniformed staff members are here to keep you safe, not get someone in trouble, and they are more than happy to help.

Security/Law Enforcement
