Technologies to Reduce Music Festival Campsite Waste

Music festival campsites produce huge amounts of waste, which local councils must contend with. Qualitative and co-design methods are employed in this project to learn how campers’ and festival organisers’ practices – from the interpersonal to the organisational – produce and contend with festival campsite waste.

We aim to produce a socio-technological intervention  in partnership with Green Music Australia, Strawberry Fields Festival, Byron Shire Council, and Mullum Cares. Our project outcomes include producing a tool that may be used by other festivals, as well as a diverse strategy set for festivals to engage in combating campsite waste.
