Family Fun

At the Just Love Festival, we believe in 'Vasudeva Kutumbakam', which means we consider all humanity as one big family. We recognise children as an important element of our culture and the future of our humanity. That is why we offer a free program for families with kids of all ages.

Children's Safety & Welfare

Children are welcome at the Just Love Festival, however we have limited resources to support them. The following guidelines are important for you as a parent to understand:

  • Children must be accompanied by a parent or designated adult companion at all times during the Festival.
  • We apologise for any inconvenience, but we do not provide any baby-sitting services, so please plan accordingly.
  • It is every parent’s personal responsibility to monitor and attend to their children's health, well-being and safety during your time at the Festival.
  • We expect thousands of visitors to the Festival. Your children's safety and well-being are of the upmost importance, so please accompany them at all times both in the campgrounds and on the Festival grounds. 
  • Children are not permitted to run free unsupervised. Please never leave your children unattended at any time. We do not assume any responsibility or liability for your children’s whereabouts or safety.
