Environmentally friendly concert setups
One student summer music festival in the UK are getting more environmentally friendly, by reducing waste and becoming carbon neutral. Beach Break Live is hosting a three day festival in Cornwall next week and has put into place several features that will reduce the impact most festivals have on the environment. For starters, this concert will only be for 3,000 people, and will offer cheap bus transportation for students from universities. Springwise reports that the event has purposely been planned for mid-week, to give work to local businesses during non-peak times as well as to avoid traffic jams. With most of the food and drinks coming from local sources, the local community benefits from having these concerts in their area.
