In 2019, Electric Forest Music Festival is focusing very closely on being eco-friendly. While the pageant has championed the trigger for the previous a number of years, it has severely ramped issues up for 2019. The pageant has made the choice to scale back all the way down to just one weekend as a substitute of going down throughout two.
This choice has throughout the board been met with widespread approval. Besides being comparatively unsustainable, the 2 weekends would find yourself being unbalanced, and the grounds of the pageant on weekend two have been at all times wrecked after weekend one.
Electric Forest Offers Eco Friendly Camping
The pageant has provided attendees the choice to purchase an eco-friendly tenting possibility, within the type of an industrial/wood-fiber cardboard tent. The package deal comes with, the already arrange construction, a mattress pad, sleeping luggage, pillows, and provides to embellish your new dwelling for the weekend. Overall it’s a $200 add-on.
The website assures that the brand new eco-friendly tent can maintain up in climate situations, and European festivals have already demonstrated this sort of tenting can survive heavy rains. Europe has been utilizing industrial cardboard tenting for years, and there are by no means any complaints of those buildings breaking down within the rain. Just check out Wacken Open Air. That being stated if you’re terribly fearful about rain penetrating industrial stage, wooden fiber cardboard (you are clearly confused that this is not a cardboard field), you may at all times throw a tarp over it.
The $200 worth level features a respectable quantity however could be most attractive for people who’re flying to Electric Forest. Packing up a tent, sleeping luggage, mattress pads, and extra earlier than taking a flight is close to unattainable. Therefore having the choice of an eco-friendly construction with all of the facilities you could possibly want ready for you upon arrival does make sense.
While Electric Forest is getting a little bit of pushback for working to supply eco-friendly choices this yr with concepts that appear international to Americans, we applaud the occasion for taking steps that may assist with their environmental affect over the approaching years.
