Sexual Violence at Australian Music Festivals
Recently, Australian Music Festivals have regularly made headlines for all the wrong reasons. From drug-use to violence, clearly not everything is perfect in our music scene. Jess spoke with Bianca Fileborn, Criminology Lecturer at UNSW regarding a new study in regards to sexual violence at music festivals. From surveys to interviews with victims, Bianca and her colleagues drew some surprising conclusions on how safe people feel at festivals, despite these factors. Bianca also spoke on what changes policy makers and individuals can make to improve the safety of music festivals, to hopefully improve the scene going forwards.
