Code of Conduct

Please agree to the following before purchasing your tickets

CDC Festival is a celebration of Black cultures. Without these it could not exist. Black dance styles are expressions of resistance to oppression and discrimination based on race.
As CDC Festival takes place in a white dominated European context we have to deal with structures that encourage racism. We therefore take special responsibility to actively be anti-racist and critically engage with the space we create within and around the festival. The world is enjoying and practicing Black dance cultures, so Black people should feel welcomed to events like these. We ask all white and non Black People of Color to be aware of their privilege. 

It is our goal that all participants have enriching and positive experiences. In order to reach this goal we believe that everyone must contribute and keep the following in mind:

  • Be aware of your own boundaries and needs and respect those of others.
  • We say No to racism, sexism, discrimination based on gender, sexual preference, religion, ethnic or economic origin and physical or mental impairment.
  • Please use anti-discriminatory language whenever possible, refrain from insults, touching without consensus, reproducing stereotypes or prejudices.
  • Introduce yourself with your pronouns and ask those of your counterpart
  • If you’re not affected by anti-black racism please refrain from features of cultural appropriation such as Black/African hairstyles
  • Look out for each other, listen to each other and offer your help
  • Actively call in the Awareness Team to situations early in the process

We offer 10% discount on all tickets for youths under 16 years old, disabled persons and people who are affected by anti-black racism.

We all want to share good vibes and dance together! For many of us to be able to do so, awareness of the above written is required. If you feel like you want to talk about this personally, feel free to contact us via
