Extra security is in place at Tasmania's Falls Festival in Marion Bay after three young girls were sexually assaulted during performances and at a campground.

One girl was assaulted on Thursday in the front right section of the moshpit during a performance by DJ Hot Tub Time Machine about 11pm, Tasmania Police said on Saturday.

Another girl reported being assaulted in the campgrounds about 9pm on Thursday, while a third girl was assaulted about 2pm on Friday during Illy's performance.

The girls are receiving counselling and support.

"Extra security measures have been put in place for the moshpit area as a result of these incidents," police said in a statement.

"If you become isolated and feel unsafe at any time, go straight to the nearest police officer, security guard and talk to them".

Detectives are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen the incidents to come forward.

Police hope to speak to a woman who intervened in the assault on the girl at the moshpit while DJ Hot Tub Time Machine was performing.
