Sexual violence themes

There is more than one reference to women being raped at the festival. The strongest reference describes a passed-out teen being found after being raped. Stills show women having their bare breasts groped.


There is extensive non-sexual nudity, mainly breast nudity. There are several shots of naked penises from a distance, including the penis of a man performing naked.

Drug use

There are multiple references to festival-goers using drugs such as marijuana and ecstasy. The festival-goers are positive about these drugs. The festival had an ‘anything goes’ vibe which many people interviewed reported liking. This is likely to have a normalising effect on younger viewers.

Offensive language

There is frequent offensive language, including “motherfu**er”, “f**k” and “sh*t”. This occurs in interviews and in the music played at the festival.
