We wish for a Desertfest of a good time for ALL.
For us, it is important that each person decides for themselves where the emotional and physical boundaries lie. That's totally right. We want to enable transparent and respectful interactions with and for each other.
It should actually be a given to look out for your fellows and to respect and adhere to their boundaries. Unfortunately reality is different, therefore applies:

No means no - only yes means yes!

We are against any form of boundary violation, violence and discrimination through sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, queerphobic or any other kind of inhuman attitudes, actions and statements.
These will not be tolerated, as it is of key importance to us to make our festival as safe as possible. We offer support to people who feel their boundaries have been violated and offer direct contact persons as support.
If you feel threatened, harassed or uncomfortable, or if you observe such situations, please contact the staff of the cash desks or the central merch.

Show solidarity and look out for each other!
