Festivals and the public debate

The world is in turmoil and many people call for action. Should music festivals play an active role in evoking the public debate?
Please let me know what you think. In what way are you involved in the music festival industry? (musician, festival goer, organizer, technician, working in the festival related hospitality industry etc.). Feel feel to make a selection of questions that you'd like to answer. We’d like to use the contributions that give food for thought most in our festival book titled MUSIC BRINGS US TOGETHER (ISBN 9789491525667). Thanks in advance for your time!
