In 2019, a 15-year-old boy was forced to expose his genitals during a police investigation a backlash from some members of the community.

Samantha Lee of Redfern Legal Center said that if a parent or guardian was not present, a child should not be searched unless under extreme circumstances.

“If they don’t have a parent or guardian, they must have a very good reason why that person won’t be available,” Miss Lee said ABC news.

“So it is unclear what information was provided to the child that made them fully understand the tests to which they were subjected.”

The police also accused two teenagers, a 14-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy, of alleged drug supplies at the festival.

Meanwhile, a 15-year-old boy was accused of banned drugs and bail.

Another 14 teenagers were reportedly found with banned drugs and the police said they will be treated according to the Young Offenders Act.

Officers also threw 27 people out of the property due to intoxication, drug-related issues and antisocial behavior.

Despite conducting searches, the NSW police did not test for drugs or alcohol, instead an external contractor was hired by festival organizers.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted the organizers of Good Life / Lost City for comments.

A total of 44 teenagers were searched and two of them were accused of delivering drugs at the festival, while another 27 were removed from the event
