London, 19th January 2022 On 19th January, The Music Federation Live launch their new Safe Spaces Policy as a response to the recent surge in spiking women across the UK within the live sector. In partnership with Strut Safe and Girls Against, the policy is something TMF Live will be implementing across all their live shows. The policy has a three part structure which has guidance for post, during and after show procedures for TMFLive to follow and guidance on their website on steps to follow if one is uncomfortable at a show or is a witness to harassment of any kind.
“With the rise of spiking at live events, aggression POC & non-binary identifying people it is important for us to ensure that our events are a safe community for attendees. The launch of our Safe Spaces Policy is our chance to make events more inclusive and we will be looking to expand this further throughout the years to come” – Sam Hong (Head of Live, The Music Federation)
“As a female gig go-er I have experienced sexual assault at gigs countless times. Whether that be a dude unclipping my bra or me getting touched up in a crowd. As a female music journalist, I was asked by male artists to get changed into their merch in front of them and have had bands throw themselves upon me backstage. All of this I was too scared to report due to the false idea that this was the ‘industry standard’. Since working at The Music Federation, I can safely say, I have never felt more comfortable in my working environment. I also know that if anyone were to do this to me now, I would have the entire company behind me, believing me and supporting me; this is why we have created the safe spaces policy, so that others will hopefully feel as supported by our growing community as I do” – Jasmine Hodge (Head of Promotions, The Music Federation)
