Big Session Festival 2009 Features
Now in it's fifth year, The Greener Festival Awards is the internationally recognised scheme that recognises and rewards festivals who have made significant steps in reducing their environmental impact.
Phew! What another impressive festival year. At the turn of the season, the big event bookings had vamped it up like Britpop Groundhog Day: Blur Vs Oasis Part II - the beef is back - just with bigger bellies and balding heads.
Both the Summer Sundae Weekender and Big Session Festivals have received the Greener Festival Award every year since it's inception.
We've teamed up with the good folks at www.agreenerfestival.com to look at the role of music festivals in promoting environmentally friendly practices, reducing the impact of festivals and combating climate change.
