“Coachella will NOT tolerate any form of assault or harassment, be it sexual, physical or verbal."

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has long upheld policies intended to make their event a safe place for all attendees. Their organizers appear intent on raising the bar even higher in 2019, however. The festival has unveiled a campaign called every one whose purpose is minimizing incidents of sexual assault at the Indio, California gathering.

"We are pushing ourselves and our guests to do better and to be better," reads literature on the Coachella website. "We are taking deliberate steps to develop a festival culture that is safe and inclusive for everyone. Persons of any gender identity or expression, sex, sexual orientation, race, religion, age or ability are welcome at Coachella."

Building upon their existing code of conduct, Coachella will also staff its 2019 edition with safety ambassadors and every one tents. Furthermore, all-gender restrooms will be provided in addition to those for men and women.

The official Coachella lineup came out last week, and both weekends of the festival are already sold out. Among the artists to perform at its 2019 edition are Ariana Grande, Diplo, Aphex Twin and Bassnectar.

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will run from April 12th-14th and April 19th-21st, 2019. For more information, visit the event website.
