“None of the organisers can not guarantee the absolute security of festival-goers, and directly prevent risk behaviour regarding harassment, gender-based violence and sex”, one can read on the festival website under the heading “Prevention”. “However, the organization of the festival, The Nights Secret believes that it is his duty to prevent risks, to engage with the young people, during the event and to ensure the appropriate treatment if necessary,” states the website, adding that the family planning takes a stand.
