Ahead of the planned 2020 event, Wide Awake announced its new eco-friendly policy, which will still be implemented at next week’s event.
Dubbed the Positive Policy, the Brockwell Park festival will adhere to a set of strict rules in its first year surrounding the use of HVO Fuel, eco-toilets and banning single use plastic at the event.
They have also vowed to follow guidelines surrounding the use of ethically sourced food and only permitting the use of biodegradable stage effects.
After IDLES’ set at Wide Awake on September 3, they’ll travel home to Bristol to play a huge show at the Clifton Downs. The band recently announced that they’ll be making 2,000 tickets available for free to local NHS workers for the show.
