Some of the UK’s biggest independent festival organisations have joined forces to lend their collective voices and call on young people to register to vote by Nov 26th – and then go on to ‘use their voice’ at the GE on December 12th.
The collective includes Boomtown Fair, Shambala, Love Saves the Day, Love International, Shindig, Outlook, Dimensions, Swingamajig, Area 404 NYE and We Out Here and all have launched a major ticket prize draw competition for their 2020 events to encourage people to register before the deadline.
The non-partisan initiative mirrors a similar one held before the 2017 general election that supported record levels of youth voters taking to the polls.
Organisers are also urging young people to read the policies of the different parties using links such as Political Compass and Who Should You Vote For? to ensure that they know who is most likely to be their party of choice.
