Musicians Back Party With The Planet Initiative

Australian musicians have come together to urge festivalgoers to party with the planet this summer.

If you’re heading to a festival – particularly a camping festival – be sure to take all of your junk home with you. Your tents, rubbish, couches. Everything you can’t dispose of in bins at the site.

But don’t just take my word for it. Here’s what a bunch of Australian musicians, including The Veronicas, Angie McMahon, Hilltop Hoods, Holy Holy, Matt Corby, Allara, Lime Cordiale and Missy Higgins, amongst others, have to say in a video from @kaju_creative.

“Festival season is coming up in Australia, and just a reminder that we’ve all got to do better,” Hilltop Hoods’ Suffa said. “Let’s avoid single-use plastics and borrow before buying – let’s clean our shit up after we leave the festival!”

“Let’s only bring what we need and let’s leave our festival sites as pristine as they were before we arrived”, Tim Carole from Holy Holy added.

Allora’s message was that “we need to take care of Country. I challenge you to minimise your waste including coffee cups and plastic water bottles. You’re on Aboriginal land. If you take care of Country, Country will take care of you.”

Head on over to partywiththeplanet.org to make your summer pledge right now. Choose one (but feel free to do more!).

1. Be a caretaker – look after the site like it’s your own backyard.
2. Buy less – seek new experiences over more stuff.
3. Choose better – borrow, hire or buy with the future in mind.
4. Take it home – clean it up and pack it away ready for next time.
