FESTIVAL CHARTER

At Les Ardentes, we want every festival-goer to have the best possible experience during the four days of the festival. We are committed to taking responsibility for combating all forms of discrimination, harassment and violence, and we are determined to minimise our environmental impact. By visiting the Les Ardentes site, you are aware of the values of the festival and you undertake to respect this charter of good conduct.

Let's work together to ensure that Les Ardentes remains a caring, inclusive, safe and environmentally-friendly venue! Les Ardentes also attaches particular importance to limiting its impact on the environment. The whole festival team is committed to a collective responsible approach and to persevering year after year.

It's with all these small actions that, together, we'll be able to achieve our big commitments and make our festival a better place.

 

 


CHARTE DU FESTIVALIER - EN.png


CELEBRATING DIVERSITY AND INCLUSIVITY 


At Les Ardentes, you have the right to be who you want to be and to enjoy your festival feeling valued, respected and safe. The festival forbids all types of sexist and sexual violence and harassment, as well as any incident or violence of a discriminatory nature (racism, LGBTQI sexism+phobia, classism, ageism, validism, etc). The entire festival team is aware of the resources available on the site and, above all, is trained to react appropriately and redirect you to the appropriate people.

 


CONSENT: LET'S TALK ABOUT IT!


If it's not a big YES, then it's a NO! Consent must be enthusiastic, specific, reversible and given in a free and informed manner. Remember that excessive consumption of alcohol or drugs in no way allows you to give informed consent.

 


CONSUME IN MODERATION 


Alcohol use or abuse in no way justifies inappropriate behaviour! Knowing your limits also means knowing how to enjoy yourself without going overboard! For your health, watch your alcohol consumption, especially strong alcohol. You should also be aware of the alcohol consumption of the people you're with, and NEVER encourage anyone to drink. A number of associations and awareness-raising stands will be present at Les Ardentes, so don't hesitate to contact them if you feel the need.

 


LET'S BE ACTIVE WITNESSES


To ensure that the festival remains a caring, inclusive and safe place, we invite you to pay particular attention to respecting everyone. If you witness discrimination, harassment, violence, alcohol abuse or any other problematic situation, don't hesitate to inform members of security and/or members of the organisation. You can also contact the SYNKA first aid and safety zones.

 


BE RESPECTFUL


When you speak to a festival-goer, a volunteer, a security guard, a barman or any other person on the site, no abusive language or aggressive behaviour will be tolerated. Everyone present at Les Ardentes deserves to be respected.

 


LET'S TAKE CARE OF LES ARDENTES


Enjoying Les Ardentes also means respecting the site and the infrastructures at your disposal. If you want to enjoy your festival year after year, don't start dirtying and damaging it.

 



LET'S LIVE TOGETHER WITH OUR NEIGHBOURS


Every effort has been made to cause as little inconvenience as possible to the people living near the festival. We're also counting on you to respect our neighbours, their peace and quiet and their property. When you go out, please follow the signs and boundaries. Don't shout, don't urinate and don't litter. 
 


LET'S BE ECO-RESPONSIBLE


The environmental impact of festivals is undeniable. Our commitments must be shared in order to reduce the ecological cost of the Ardentes. In keeping with our values of sustainability, we encourage you to think consciously about how you travel, what you consume and what you do at Les Ardentes. Waste and cigarette butt sorting facilities will be available on site and at the campsite. Litter-picking competitions will also be organised.

 


LET'S CAMP CLEAN


Leaving your pitch clean means respecting the work of the whole team after the festival. Don't forget to collect your camping equipment and other items when you leave. If you really need to get rid of it, take advantage of the equipment donation and recycling facilities on the campsite.

We're counting on you to respect this charter so that everyone's experience is the best it can be.
