A HUGE thank you to the wonderful folks at the European Festival Awards, who awarded us the Green Operations Award, for our ‘significant contribution to or achievement towards developing more sustainable events’.

We’ve always been committed to balancing throwing a serious party with being as sustainable as is possible – in five years we have reduced the onsite carbon footprint of the festival by 81%, we are now 100% renewably powered, and 2016 saw us take our biggest leap to date, by going meat and fish free – a risk, but one that paid off due to the unwavering support and co-operation of our amazing crowd.

Check out the infographic below for an in depth break down of everything we achieved sustainability-wise in 2016. Here’s to taking it to the next level in 2017!
