Officers are investigating reports that a number of women were assaulted at the Bearded Theory festival in Swadlincote last week.
We were called by security staff to the event at Catton Hall on Friday 27 May.
It is believed the incidents happened in the cider bar, and also at the queue for the ladies toilets sometime between around 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
Those who were believed to have been affected have not come forward to speak to officers.
A man aged in his 30s from Leicestershire was arrested at the time and has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
We would like to hear from any victims, or anyone who may have witnessed the incidents. Were you in those areas around that time?
