After having to cancel what would have been their debut edition in 2020, Wide Awake Festival is back and raring to go for 2021. As well as a packed music line-up – IDLES, black midi, Daniel Avery, A Certain Ratio, Dream Wife, Songhoy Blues, Goat Girl, Black Country New Road, Kokoroko, The Murder Capital, Erol Alkan, Crack Cloud and more – there’s gonna be a big focus on the climate crisis by implementing a Positive Policy to help change the way live music events impact the environment.
There’ll be sustainability-focused events running on the day at the Climate Cafe, like carbon calculator experiments, utopian/dystopian futures workshops and activism speed dating. The policy will also see the festival ban single-use plastics, provide eco-toilets and ethically sourced food, and only permit biodegradable stage effects.
