betternotstop are thrilled to announce we’re once again partnering with Kendal Calling, a Cumbrian-based music festival, to develop their new Sustainability Impact Strategy for 2023.
Why did we form this partnership?
As festival-goers ourselves, we were overjoyed when Kendal Calling approached us early last year to collaborate on a bespoke impact strategy and are teaming up again this year to continue the great work. The festival, which already supports several charities and employs a range of sustainability initiatives, needed our expertise in developing a comprehensive strategy and waste management plan.What are we working on? Our team at betternotstop, with over two decades of music industry experience, has been working hard on various initiatives for the festival. This includes launching the “Leave Nothing But Memories” Campaign, recruiting a dedicated ImpactCrew, and empowering traders, suppliers, artists, and the audience to be more conscientious in their decisions and commit to reducing their environmental impact.

The festival industry needs to step up and fast! Last year we authored a research paper called the More Than Music Report which revealed that only 25% of UK music festivals are committed to publicly available sustainability policies, charitable donations, and taking action to offset their carbon production. However, Kendal Calling is at the forefront of sustainable impact and aims to reduce the total tonnage of tent and campsite waste. We are proud to be a part of the Love the Park, Protect the Festival campaign and create a lasting legacy for the festival.
