Music festivals going green

Music festivals going green
Music festivals will be taking place across the UK this summer, and with thousands of people travelling to the events, and the elaborate stage shows taking place at them, they are responsible for a large amount of carbon emissions.

However, this year, ten of the biggest festivals in the UK, including the Isle of Wight Festival, the Big Chill, Latitude, Bestival, Reading and Lovebox, have decided to clean up their acts and join the 10:10 initiative.

This will see them aiming to cut their carbon emissions by ten per cent this year by cutting back on lighting, water use and waste.

Speaking to the Guardian, 10:10 campaign director Eugenie Harvey said that involving music festivals in the initiative shows that being green is not simply about giving things up.

"British summertime's all about getting out there and enjoying it while it lasts. And enjoying it all with ten per cent less carbon, well, who can argue?" Harvey added.

The Isle of Wight Festival, which will take place on June 11th, 12th and 13th, is encouraging attendees to think green by offering priority parking to people who lift share as part of its FestivalBudi scheme.
