We all share the responsibility for creating a positive atmosphere at Ruisrock; this includes the festival organizers, the stakeholders and the festival audience. Together, we can create an inclusive festival where everyone feels safe and can be themselves – there is no room for racism, discrimination or harassment at Ruisrock.

Take care
Take care of yourself and others – dare to care!

Respect others
Respect different people and cultures. No inappropriate behaviour, harassment or discrimination of any kind will be tolerated at Ruisrock.

Offer help
Help those in need and address inappropriate behaviour. If you find it difficult to intervene, you should contact the nearest security steward or other festival staff.

Remember consent
Remember mutual consent in all interactions. Ask for permission to touch.

Celebrate responsibly
Take care of your friends, enjoy the festival with respect for others, remember to drink water and know your limits.

Protect nature
Respect the nature of Ruissalo: place your rubbish in the bin and use the toilet.

Let everyone celebrate in peace
Everyone has the right to enjoy the festival safely and as themselves – please contribute to public safety and encourage your friends to do the same.

Ruisrock immediately addresses any incidents of harassment that are reported to the organizer. Violating the festival etiquette may be grounds for being removed from the festival.
