Family Friendly Definition

The Grand Haven Musical Fountain is an attraction that draws visitors from all over the world. Because of our very diverse audience, the Grand Haven Musical Fountain is dedicated to keeping our selection of music and themed shows family friendly. The Grand Haven Musical Fountain Committee has set a standard of family friendly music and can be defined as outlined below:

 

  • Music must be free of swear words, words of hatred, racial slurs or generally inappropriate words in American culture (inappropriate slang)
  • Music must be free of references pointing to acts of sexual activity of any kind
  • Music must be free of references pointing to acts of drug use, the sale of drugs or drug solicitation
  • Music lyrics (if applicable) must be clear and easily understandable in the English language. Songs with fast spoken lyrics that are not easy to understand will not be permitted.
  • Music genre must be widely accepted and generally liked by all audiences. This would exclude music including but not limited to metal, rap and Christian/gospel music.
  • Music that encourages, talks about or mentions acts of violence or any other illegal acts

 

While considering a song to program, please keep these guidelines in mind.
