The inaugural International A Greener Festival (AGF) Awards will take place at the International Live Music Conference (ILMC), held at London’s Royal Garden Hotel next month.
Taking place during the Green Events and Innovations Conference on 5 March, then event seeks to highlight “a single best-in-class event across 11 categories”.
“The significance of the International Greener Festival Awards is that, for the first time we are crowning the top winner as the greenest festival in the world,” says AGF co-founder Claire O’Neill.
“We also shout about the festivals with the best transport, waste, power and innovation to making the whole industry greener and those using their influence and reach for good.
“The purpose is to accelerate positive change by shining a light on the best ideas us humans are coming up with to solve our collective conundrums.”
Award categories will include the Greener Transport Award, Greener Catering Award, Greener Pioneer Award, Greener Creative Award and Circular Festival Award.
In January, AGF announced the winners of its ‘Outstanding’ award, which included Portugal’s bi-annual Boom Festival (cap. 33,333), Cambridge Folk Festival (14,000) in the UK, DGTL Festival (5,000) in the Netherlands and Norway’s Oya Festival (15,000).
