As with their debut event this year, Wide Awake 2022 will see the continuation of the festival’s ‘Positive Policy’, described as “a set of positive actions taken in an effort to help our ecosystem and change the way in which live music events take responsibility for actions towards our planet.”
A statement adds: “The Positive Policy recognises that the entertainment industry could do more towards the climate, carbon and air pollution. Wide Awake aims to find solutions that can make festivals carbon neutral, give support to local causes and not create any air pollution.”
