Rob is an environmental scientist. He became “accidentally” involved in festivals and events nearly 20 years ago, helping to run the Croissant Neuf area at Glastonbury Festival– one of the longest established venues on the site and an area that is completely solar powered.
Since then, he has become an experienced freelance event production & site manager, working Glastonbury every year that it has taken place and also amassing a wealth of experience at many other unique events including Kendal Calling, Festival No. 6 and the Croissant Neuf Summer Party – a fully featured family festival run entirely on solar power with no diesel generators.
Over the last couple of years, Rob has been working with the Glastonbury Festival infrastructure team on a variety of environmental projects, including initiating and managing a monitoring project in partnership with power provider Aggreko and academic research partner the University of the West of England, that looks at the efficiency of temporary power systems on site.
It is Rob’s dream to see festivals and events become as sustainable as possible and for them to prove that this is not only better for the environment, but also makes for a better experience for the audience with potentially less cost/more profit for the event in the long run…
