OVER 100 UK FESTIVALS COMMIT TO TACKLING SEXUAL VIOLENCE Over 100 UK festivals have backed the Association of Independent Festivals’ (AIF) Safer Spaces at Festivals campaign, which is aimed at tackling sexual violence at festivals.
Originally launched in May 2017, the relaunched initiative sees festivals commit to an updated charter of best practice, developed with input and guidance from experts. The Charter states that all allegations of sexual harassment, assault and violence will be taken seriously, acted upon promptly and investigated.
This is supplemented by a commitment to clear, robust reporting and disclosure procedures, including how to report incidents onsite and post-event. Boomtown Fair, Boardmasters, Reading & Leeds, Bluedot, Parklife and Shambala are among the 105 signatories.
