2020 to 2021 has certainly been a rough year for indoor and outdoor festivals. With the UK slowly starting to open, there has been a high demand for tickets as festivalgoers are excited to return. In fact, according to Reticket, who surveyed 140,000 festivalgoers, 79% of respondents stated they would go to a live event between June and August.
With high demand, tickets are selling fast, but there is continued concern around wastage and the mess left behind following a festival. Through the last festival season, it’s estimated that 23,500 tonnes of waste were produced by events across the UK. To put that into perspective, it’s about the same weight as 78 fully loaded Boeing 747 jumbo jets.
After a festival finishes, there is usually a brigade of litter pickers to try to clean up the venue. Festival-goers discard sleeping bags, tents and many other items that would take years and years to decay. There have been many strategies to combat the issue, most notably Glastonbury banning single-use plastic drink bottles.
