The Show Must Go On Report 2019 launched at the UK Festival Awards

The sustainability initiative, Festival Vision: 2025, launched the second edition of its pioneering Show Must Go On Report at the UK Festival Awards on December 5th.

The document outlines the environmental impact of the festival industry and acts as a definitive guide for live events wishing to limit their carbon footprint. Following a highly successful crowdfunding campaign earlier this year, the 2019 iteration of the Report brings its contents up-to-date with current information and best practice.

See below for the launch video.

The report states that: “As festival organisers we know how to create unforgettable experiences and how to inspire people. We know how to get things done in challenging circumstances and we are accomplished at communicating with audiences.

"It is well within our reach to turn our industry into an exemplar of environmental responsibility. We can make a vital and significant contribution to a future that we want our children to inherit.

"Festival organisers working with their many and diverse partners, from concessions to the supply chain, contractors, charities and brands, can provide leadership for what is perhaps the most important conversation of our time.”
