Since the first edition, we have committed to not increasing the festival’s capacity. This commitment has led to a reduction in waste generation over the editions. Furthermore, 95% of our audience is local, which reduces international travel and transportation.
In order to meet the highest quality standards, we have been working with Ecoembes since 2015. Ecoembes is a non-profit organization dedicated to environmental conservation through recycling and ecologically conscious design of light household packaging in Spain. Additionally, the Festival is committed to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) promoted by the European Union.
As members of the Music Festival Association (FMA), whose defining principle is acting with Sustainability and the 2030 Agenda, the festival has a strong legitimate commitment to these principles.
· VidaBus and Special Trains:
The festival promotes public and/or collective transportation by providing a fleet of buses that transport more than 5,000 people daily. Our collaboration with the RENFE operator makes special late-night trains from Vilanova i la Geltrú to Barcelona possible every year.
· Fighting against single-use plastic:
The utensils used to serve food in the catering areas (Foodtrucks) comply with all European Union recommendations for reusable packaging.
· 100% sustainable cups:
All cups used at the festival are reusable and made of glass in the wildside area. Additionally, the excess cups are recycled to create new ones for the next edition. The proceeds from these initiatives contribute to improvements in the protected area of Masia d’en Cabanyes.
· Enjoy the festival by bike:
Vilanova i la Geltrú is a city with ideal terrain for cycling. We have planned and designed safe and well-signposted routes that connect different parts of the city with the Festival. Additionally, we provide a free and guarded bicycle parking area at the festival entrance.
