I have worked at music festivals over the last 10 years and often I’m one of the first to arrive and one of the last to depart. Globally, over the last ten years, there has been a huge increase in the number of music festivals taking place. In Ireland alone over 1000,000 people attend the two biggest festivals each summer. An estimated 50% of tents are abandoned, not to mention the tens of thousands of Euros worth of sleeping bags, beer, food, wellies & torches that are wasted. How can we encourage the so-called ‘Green Generation’ to face their hangovers & leftovers head on and alleviate this problem?
I teamed up with the festival to produce, edit and film this short video which highlights the problem and encourages a change in peoples attitudes at Body & Soul.
Music by Sounds of System Breakdown from their great new album Nomad.
