ABSTRACT: Cross-sectional surveys were conducted annually from 2006 to 2011 at a music festival. Eight thousand one hundred sixty-five young people completed surveys. STI testing rates increased over time, but there was an increase in the prevalence of some sexual risk behaviors and little improvement in STI knowledge between 2006 and 2011.
