Our values


Ruisrock doesn’t tolerate racism or discrimination of any kind. In case you witness or encounter inappropriate behavior, please contact any of the security or other festival staff.


  • Everyone is treated equally regardless of e.g. skin color, age, gender, or sexual orientation.
  • Physical integrity is respected.
  • Everyone looks after each other.
  • Let’s enjoy a happy festival together where everyone feels comfortable!

Our responsibilities:

  • Organize a helping info team to patrol the area and guide anyone in need of help.
  • Provide a space near the first aid tent of the festival where you can find someone to talk to and a peaceful place to take a breather, if you need one.
  • Arrange toilet facilities for women, men, and non-binary individuals.
  • Provide special services for physically disabled visitors. More information about our accessibility services can be found under accessibility.
  • Create an atmosphere where everyone feels safe.

We are also involved in the Keychange initiative, by which we are committed to increasing the proportion of women and non-binary performers to at least 50% in the festival programme. We achieved our goal in 2019 and will continue to work to provide an increasingly diverse festival programme.

Your responsibilities:

  • Look out for your friends and fellow festival goers – dare to care!
  • Interfere with any inappropriate behavior that you come across. If it’s difficult to step in, you can always contact the nearest security steward or other festival staff.
  • Always ask for permission before touching someone!
  • Respect different people and cultures.
  • Behave according to good manners (and urge your friends to do the same).

Everyone has the right to enjoy the festival safely – make sure that you promote overall safety with your own actions.
