More than just another open air music event, the Futur2Festival in Hamburg next year is an experiment in the creation of sustainable public events.

One of the festival’s main goals is to generate all necessary energy on-site while reducing or recycling all waste. Even food stands and sanitary facilities are planned out in such a way as to utilise resources as efficiently and sparingly as possible. Unfortunately, producing zero waste would be impossible, but the festival has a strategy for ensuring that its effect on the environment is net zero: surplus impact on the environment is made up for by compensatory payments. Other green features of the festival include; solar and pedal powered stage equipment, and off the grid bar, and climate neutral transport.
