Festival goers in WA will be offered free STI screening this summer starting with a trial of the "pampering facilities" at Fremantle's Falls Festival. 

The State Government initiative is aimed at driving down the rates of chlamydia and gonnorrhoea.

We have more notifications of chlamydia than we do of influenza each year, so this is a serious public health concern.

- Health Minister Roger Cook 

The test will be a simple urine sample, but the special facility will include superior toilets, while refreshments and condoms will be provided to those who get tested.
