We want to be more than a festival

Dare to care

Bayside Festival is part of the RFSU initiative Dare To Care since 2020. Dare To Care is an encouraging investment for mutuality in all sexual meetings and against sexual assault - within the live music world and everywhere. By educating festival promoters, be visible at live music events and spred the message through sociala media, Dare To Care wants to spread its message and create a a positive live culture. Dare To Care wants to implement two behaviours: how you handle limits and you can become an active spectator if you see something wrong. If we can we develop these two behaviours, then we can get a mutuality culture at the festival which we later can transfer to the society in general.


The most important issue for Dare To Care is that you as a visitor at feel safe at festivals no matter gender, sexuality, religion or ethnicity. We have a zero tolerance policy against discrimination at our festival, both at the festival are and on our social media. Incidents involving discrimination will be reported to the police and you will be banned from the festival. Brännbollsyran is about 100% love, to live music, festivals and each other.


Dare to act. Dare to care. Spread love, not hate.


Bayside Festival leaves a mark. You notice it at your new found friends, your sneakers which are not that white anymore, the exercise pain in your legs after jumping in the crowd, your playlists which has grown or the feeling in your stomach when you have met a new love in your life. Something you might not notice are our emissions.


Just like most festivals in the world, Bayside Festival has an impact on the environment. We as promoters always tries to find new ways to lower our emissions. During the last years, we only use 100% recyclable disposable items, major investment within bottle recycling and waste and new technical inventions with stage lighting and confetti. Since 2019 we collaborate with Sweden's festival and sustainability bureau LiveGreen. LiveGreen supports us within the evaluation of the festival.


With this said, we aim to do even more. We must take other initiatives and come up with new innovative ideas for future festival goers. Just the thought of future generations not be able to attend festivals is freighting.



Bayside Festival loves assosiations. Our organisation is based from the assosiation environment and want to support other assosiations. We believe assosiations are an important part of life where young and old people meet.


Since the start, we have collaborated with different assosiations in order to execute the festival. We use different assosiations as our work force and thereby giving the assosiations an important economic boost in order for them to continue their work. Bayside Festival is the most important income for these assosiations. It feels great for us to support assosiations in Helsingborg. 


No assosiations, no Bayside Festival.
