Inclusive and diverse Sideways Festival
Sideways Festival is a true haven of creativity and an absolute must-do for the music aficionado who loves to indulge in diverse food offerings, quality drinks and experiences that are not found everywhere else.
Sideways wants to be as equal event as possible and welcome everyone to the festival just as they are. Everybody should feel included and celebrated – not just accepted. No discrimination of any kind, for example towards gender, a specific ethnic group, skin colour or sexual orientation is allowed. If you see at the festival 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, you should always notify the nearest security person. All the employees, partners and suppliers of the festival must commit to the values mentioned above.
