Here For The Music 


Live music is a place for fun, community, and open expression. Sexual harassment and assault don't belong.


686 respondents to our online survey that have been to a music festival in the past 5 years reported 1006 incidents of harassment or assault.


Over 67% of women reported experiencing sexual harassment or violence while working in the music industry. 


90% of female concert goers reported experiencing harassment while attending a live show.  


92% of female festival goers reported experiencing sexual harassment or violence while attending a music festival. 


Sexual violence and harrasment in live music is widespread. But it doesn’t have to be.


We believe in music’s power to create change.
We are modeling the culture we want by fighting against sexual violence at shows and festivals.
Our #HereForTheMusic campaign works to build true safety with all parties who come together to create a show or festival: artists, promoters, fans, venue staff, touring professionals, media professionals, and more.

We have worked with 85+ artists, venues, and festivals to date and trained 3000+ people. Join us?
