We are looking forward to meeting you in the czech capital in spring, because we want to talk about today and tomorrow. Let‘s discuss how we run our operations smarter and how we treat the environment and ourselves more responsible and more sustainable. Like no other institution our pan-european think-tank brought together hundreds of festivals, scientists, initiatives and suppliers involved in festival and event organisation to foster exchange on an international basis. Time for the next chapter:
We are happy, excited and proud of this wonderful line-up of speakers including experts from so many fields: festivals, science, initiatives and politics. Two days dedicated to festivals of the future, a life worth living and how to stay sane in a crazy world. We are looking forward to meeting you, because we want to talk about today and tomorrow. Let‘s discuss how we run our operations smarter and how we treat the environment and ourselves more responsible and more sustainable.
In addition to our H2 Corner, Dr Stefano Barberis will present our Everywh2ere project in a panel discussion.
Panel will be hosted by Jacob Bilabel from our project partner Green Music Initiative.
“The energy revolution“ – innovation & mindset”Do we really need more more more? The audience want brighter and crazier lightshows. The artists demand LED screens as far as the eye can see. The safety guys demand the best backup systems available. Let‘s create the most efficient energy sources with the least emissions produced to meet those needs and power the events of the future. We will talk about needs, plans and developments. Nothing more or less than a change of the industry‘s energy philosophy.
