Rock en Seine, more committed than ever!

Rock en Seine, more committed than ever!

Rock en Seine is an event that is committed and concerned by the challenges of its time. That’s why associations will accompany you on the site, for a fun and safe festival.

Even if Rock en Seine is accessible by metro, train, tram, bus and vélib, some festival-goers will be back on the road after the concerts. But we won’t forget them! At the Vigicarotte by MAAF stand, you can test your knowledge of road safety with activities. There will be many challenges: Vélo Smoothie Quizz, 3D VR mask, alcohol defimasque, alcootel… And at the end, gifts, smoothies and lots of other prizes.

For this 2022 edition, Rock en Seine is setting up a prevention, awareness and support system to fight against sexist and sexual violence and harassment. To answer questions about consent, the Crips Île-de-France, a health prevention association, will be under the tent of the Île-de-France Region to welcome festival-goers. With its animations on consent in a festive environment (Safe Vibes Only) and its holiday notebooks like no other, festival-goers will be able to test their knowledge on four major subjects: bodypositive, gender equality, mental health and sexual health and discrimination. The Crips team will be on the Festival site to answer questions and to distribute condoms, earplugs, pocket ashtrays… So that the party is safe!

No more spending time at a festival without the assurance of being safe! That’s why Rock en Seine has teamed up with #NousToutes so that everyone can enjoy these four sunny days. On the prevention stand, #NousToutes volunteers will be available to answer all questions from festival-goers, but also on the issues of the fight against Sexual and Gender-Based Violence. Volunteers will also be on site to meet festivalgoers.

The system is accompanied by a safe zone, located just behind the #NousToutes prevention stand. This space will welcome people exposed to violent, discriminating and/or oppressive behaviour, who need to calm down, listen and find guidance. For this purpose, the festival has called on the association Elle’s Imagine’nt, specialised in the fight against violence, which will be able to take care of the potential victims. Finally, a charter has been drawn up in partnership with Consentis and has been sent to the staff and to all the Festival’s service providers.

The start-up Tumeplay will offer interventions aimed at freeing expression around sexuality (well-being and health, knowledge of one’s body and pleasures). On its stand, the team will offer: an illustration workshop on the body and pleasures, led by Gomargu, the illustrator of YesWeKen, a discussion/interview workshop on freedom of expression led by Manon Cauchoix, the creator of the TalQ podcast, and a discussion/interview workshop on images and representations of young people in terms of sexuality, led by Clémentine Monperrus, creator of the Blindher podcast. Tumeplay is a mobile application that supports young people in learning about sexual health in a fun and reliable way, providing them with the necessary resources and tools to help them discover and explore their sexuality in a positive and responsible way.

Rock en Seine has always put the well-being of its festival-goers at the heart of its concerns.
Let’s defend together the values of benevolence, tolerance and respect, during the festival, but also in the hours that precede and follow it. And above all enjoy Rock en Seine!
