Ban Facial Recognition
at Live Shows

Facial recognition is coming, unless we stop it. Companies like Ticketmaster are investing in it, and even smaller bars and venues are experimenting with it. Festivals, venues, and promoters must take a stand and refuse to use this invasive and racially biased technology, which puts music fans at risk of being unjustly detained, harassed, judged, or even deported. 24/7 mass surveillance will not keep concerts safe. Silence is complicity, it's time to make your voice heard.
