Here For The Music

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

We believe in music's power to create change, and we're modeling the culture we want by fighting against sexual violence at shows and festivals. 

Our Here For The Music campaign was founded in 2017 by Kim Warnick, and works to build true safety with everyone who comes together to create a show or festival: artists, fans, promoters. touring and media professionals, venue staff, and more.

We've worked with 85+ artists, venues, and festivals to date and trained over 3000 people. Will you join us?
