This coming 14, 15 and 16th September, the good people at Because Music, We Love Art and Corida will join forces to repeat the (even improved, if possible) experience of the We Love Green Festival. Its name is no coincidence. We Love Green is defined as a modern festival conceived of and designed according to one fundamental premise: that of respect for the environment. In fact, its programming is seen not only as an excuse for the event, but also as a way of raising consciousness and changing behaviour, of encouraging people to live greener lives.
In line with this attitude, most of the festival’s structures will be made following principles like recycling and natural architecture; the food that will be served in the various restaurants on the grounds will all be organic and support local products; there will be little solar panels and windmills set up to generate energy, and water use and the processing of waste will be handled according to ecological standards.
The event will be held in Paris’ Parc de Bagatelle and the programming will include live music, natural architecture and land art exhibits, workshops about design and staging based on recycled materials applied to making furniture, decoration, and structural elements, with an experience area aimed at the little ones, as well as a programme of talks on various subjects related to culture, art, music, lifestyle, and sustainable development, organised in collaboration with TED.
As far as the music goes, the second We Love Green will host performances by such suggestive names as James Blake, Beirut, Charlotte Gainsbourg & Connan Mockasin, Klaxons, Camille, Kindness, Django Django, Norah Jones, Breakbot and Electric Guest.
