Eurosonic Noorderslag is an annual four-day music showcase festival and conference and Europe’s most important meeting for the festival and live entertainment industry sector with more than 5000 attendees held in January in Groningen, Netherlands.
The EveryWh2ere Project had two panels on energy at festivals:
Festivals of the Future
Making a huge impact with a low impact on the planet: this is how the future is being built. This panel will show some of the latest ideas, goals and the progress of various smart systems, modules and solutions. From the circular economy to hydrogen energy – these measures will be implemented at the festivals and events of the future and this panel will show you how.

Time is Running Out! Green Energy Solution for Festivals
Trends towards more stringent legislation (Paris 2020) and social responsibility require urgent action in the substitution of diesel generators at festivals. A practical solution (wind and solar energy) is to be presented at EPIC in this session. Various viewpoints of this theme will be discussed with policy makers, artists and companies using the same technology, with emphasis on urgency, feasibility, and practical applicability of the presented solution.

and Take a Stand (https://www.take-a-stand.eu/)
to engage stakeholders in conversations on hydrogen, get them as demosite
partners and reach out to industry experts.
