Festicket are the world's largest online community for festival organisers and fans, and it goes without saying we're encouraged by their recently announced collaboration with the Good Night Out Campaign to both raise awareness about harassment at festivals, and to put into place steps to combat it.

Bryony Beynon is the Co-Founder and Co-Director of Good Night Out. She explains of the collaboration; "A recent poll showed*, one in five (22%) festival goers, rising to 30% of women, have experienced some form of unwanted sexual behaviour at a UK festival. That's shocking, but to us it's not surprising, and we believe it has to change. Good Night Out Campaign supports festivals and licensed premises around the world to implement better response and prevention policies. We are very excited to be working with Festicket to spread our message that planning your festival experience should be simple and hassle-free, and should never involve worrying about sexual harassment or assault!"

Zack Sabban is the Co-Founder and Co-Director of Festicket; “We are big festival fans and we always look at ways to help make the festival experience a positive and fun one. We are pleased to work alongside this fantastic organisation to spread their message to help combat sexual harassment and unwanted attention at music festivals. Unfortunately there are a few individuals that can ruin the festival experience and we want to help eliminate that. We will be taking a Good Night Out’s professional advice on what measures we can take and what positive advice we can share to our festival goers. Our collaboration aims to support a positive and safe-for-all festival environment”.
