THE FESTIVAL is a British comedy in which a young man attends a music festival after being dumped by his girlfriend.

Sex

There are frequent verbal and visual sex references throughout, including a scene of implied bestiality. There are also a number of strong sex scenes, including one which results in sight of liquid resembling semen landing on a pile of clothes.

Theme

Moments of crude humour include a scene in which one man urinates on another, with sight of his penis. In another scene a woman mistakes a semen stain on her son's clothing for toothpaste and attempts to rub it off with her finger.

Drugs

There is a scene in which a man mistakenly snorts six lines of ketamine and has a bad reaction to the drug. In another scene a couple share an MDMA pill.

Language

There is one use of very strong language ('c**t') and frequent strong language ('f**k'). Milder terms include 'dick', 'twat', 'piss', 'shit', 'prick' and 'bitch'.

Other issues include moderate injury detail when a man catches his nipple piercing on a fence and infrequent comic violence. There is nudity, including sight of penises, testicles and buttocks, all in a comic context.
