Every One

We commit to lead within the Country music community in order to create a safe and inclusive festival culture that not only speaks on equity and justice, but acts on it. We will not tolerate any form of sexual harassment be it verbal or physical, nor any discriminatory act including, homophobia, racism, transphobia, ableism, xenophobia, sexism, or cultural appropriation.

Anyone found to be in violation of this policy or the Code of Conduct is subject to immediate removal from the festival site. The offender’s Festival Wristband may be revoked and no refund will be issued.

Let’s come together to co-create a festival and culture that is safe, inclusive, supportive, and fun for all. This must be a collective effort.

Pre-Festival Wellness Toolkit

These are some things to keep in mind and pack as you get ready for Stagecoach.

Make a contingency plan

  • Phone tip: Share location with everyone in your group.
  • Predetermine a place to meet up that’s clear, specific, and easy to find. Example: Spectre or a specific info kiosk.
  • Be aware of your physical, mental, emotional needs and take care of them regularly.

Check your medication needs

  • Read through the safety information and be aware of any possible interactions.
  • Pack enough for your entire stay and bring your prescription with you.

Do a mental health check-in with your group

  • Share with each other how to identify signs that people might be in need of support.
  • Check-in on a regular basis and be honest about how you each feel.

Bring a refillable plastic water bottle (no glass, metal aluminum or steel containers allowed) and a nice smelling lotion that reminds you of a calm moment (lavender, eucalyptus).

Prepare for the elements

  • Sun
  • Heat
  • Wind
  • Dust and pollen
  • Cold

Pack a first-aid kit. You never know what you might need.

Tips For How To Stay Well During The Festival

  • Drink WATER
  • Take regular breaks and REST
  • EAT
  • Write down your group’s phone numbers in case you lose your phone or get lost

Note and locate the wellness area icons

  • Medics: physical ailment
  • every one space: mental health support
  • Info kiosks: general questions and information
  • Water hydration station: refill your bottle throughout the day

Check in with your group regularly, including how each of you feels

  • It’s ok to not feel ok, even in the most fun places. You are not alone!
  • Seek help at the every one space if you need mental health support or a quiet moment away.

Grounding And Breathing Techniques

These are some things to keep in mind and pack as you get ready for Stagecoach.

Categories

The idea is to think of objects or words that fit into the different categories. Here are some options:

  • Think of 5 things that start with the letter A, then with the letter B and continue with each letter of the alphabet.
  • Find all the green things around you. Then pick another color like yellow or pink and repeat the exercise with as many colors as you need.

Breathing in Fives

  • Inhale as slowly and deeply as you can for five seconds. Visualize your body getting lighter as the air fills your lungs and belly. Hold the air in for five seconds.
  • Release it slowly through your mouth or nose for five seconds. Notice your body progressively relaxing. Repeat three times.

Ways to return focus to your body

  • Sit down. Focus on the feeling of the ground beneath you. Stretch your arms and legs for five seconds. Repeat.
  • If you are standing up, focus on the sensation of your feet on the ground. Identify if there is tension on your shoulders, hands or jaw, and while breathing, focus on relaxing them and correcting your posture.
  • Close your hand in a fist and press as hard as you can for three seconds. Let go and focus on the sensation. Repeat this three times. Visualize the tension leaving your body. Remember to breathe.

Focus on an affirmation

  • "I am here. I will enjoy the little things."
  • "This moment is all that exists right now."
  • "I am present."
  • "I give myself permission to enjoy this moment."
