Festival Sustainability Lab

LiveGreen, One Resilient Earth, Green Events and Innofest are joining forces! Together we aim to stimulate sustainable innovation at festivals. Therefore, we organize an online Test Like the Best workshop for a limited number of European startups, in which they will learn why the festival and creative industry is an interesting market for them and how they can test their assumptions. Two of these startups will be selected to test their prototype at a European festival.

Please note: applications are closed.

The Program

A limited amount of startups can sign up for our first workshop, called ‘Test Like the Best.’ After this, a small number startups will be selected to join two additional workshops in which they will prepare their test case, working side by side with one of our test experts, to create their best test case. After the third workshop, two startups will receive a test spot at one of the international festivals that are affiliated with us, such as EurosonicNoorderslag, Lowlands and Into The Great Wide Open. We are specifically looking for startups who develop innovations to make the festival sector and cultural industry more sustainable. Think of solutions for waste management, water and energy.
