We are extremely thankful to be able to organize the festival in the amazing woodlands of Beekse Bergen and we try our best to sustain its beauty. This is why we’re doing our best to preserve the environment as best as possible.
Therefore, we employed is a deposit system for drinking cups in 2013. All beers and beverages are poured into plastic cups, which you can immediately return to any bar before the next round of drinks. We’ve been able to save almost three tons of plastic waste this way. All the waste is offered separately to a processor. In collaboration with our vendors, we try to reduce the amount of food waste. All the food remains will be supplied to the local food bank.
A part of our stages and the backstage production runs on fixed voltage. This reduces the use of generators and spares thousands of liters of diesel fuel. We have switched almost all of the exterior lighting on the festival grounds to the latest LED lights. Even the 28 miles of string light are completely LED and save up to 70% power in use.
