Come as you are

Sideways Festival is a true haven of creativity and an absolute must-do for the music aficionado who loves to indulge in diverse performers and artists, food offerings, quality drinks and experiences that are not found everywhere else. Sideways is the best of what Helsinki has got to offer in three days!

Sideways festival is committed to support and promote diversity and inclusivity. We want to show this in Everybody should feel safe and welcome. Discrimination of any kind is not toleratedAll the volunteers and workers are

Sideways wants to be as equal event as possible and we welcome everyone to the festival just as they are. We do not condone discrimination of any kind, for example towards gender, a specific ethnic group, skin colour or sexual orientation.

If you see or experience behaviour towards yourself, your friends or other festival goers that feels distressing, inappropriate or in some way is against the values of equality, please notify the nearest security person.

We hope everyone respects the other guests of our festival and treats others as they wish to be treated. Thank you for co-operation!
