Festivals. They are all about enjoying music together, singing together, dancing together, partying together. The best times. Music brings people closer together. The sense of belonging is great. During the entire time of the festival, a temporary, strong and unique community is being formed. It is therefore very important that every visitor, employee or other person involved feels safe and is able to experience the festival in the best circumstances.
We want to be a safe place where everybody feels welcome and comfortable. A place where no one is subjected to discrimination, criticism or intimidation. Everyone should be able to be themselves. Everyone is welcome at our festivals, regardless of gender, orientation, culture, religion, ethnicity or disability.
We raise awareness and inform. About alcohol and drugs, sexuality, mental well-being, and health. The legislation is being respected at the festivals. We expect responsible behaviour from festivalgoers. Say no to drugs, yes to safe consensual sex, drink plenty of water, opt for public transport, apply sunscreen. If things go wrong, our employees and emergency services will be there to help you. At any time.
‘We Care A Lot’ is a story we write together, a story of shared responsibility. Take care of yourself and your friends. Aim to be the best version of yourself. We are committed to ensuring that our festivals are healthy and safe. Our employees are trained so that they are even more vigilant and can react appropriately where necessary. Specialists in various domains are assisting us, festivalgoers can turn to a counsellor if needed.
Feel good at our festivals. Be yourself. We care a lot.
