Sustainability  might  not  be  the  first  thought  that  comes  to mind  when  talking  about  festivals, but  this  industry  in  particular  is  currently  seriously experimenting  with  bottom-up  innovations  in  the  field of  logistics, waste, energy, mobility  and  water management. Festivals are currently working with innovative companies, start-ups, scientists and newly founded innovation platforms for the event industry such as  Open-House,  Innofest  and the Revolution Foundation. Festivals are a  catalyst  for  a genuine   transition towards true sustainability.

Alongside  that,  music  festivals are a rite of passage for millennials, providing a powerful and meaningful way to connect with that audience. In  other  words:  our  future  is  sustainable, and  festivals are  a great  way  to  show  a shining example  to  the  world. In  this  Pecha Kucha- style panel, we present  five innovations from around the world that are applicable both to the festival industry and to society as a whole.
For  this  panel  we have  one  wildcard entry  for  the  craziest  and most innovative idea that is sent to us. Panellist will be announced soon.
