Glastonbury 2023 Will Run Entirely On Renewable Energy

With anticipation already building for this week’s 2023 edition of Glastonbury, the world-famous event has now given environmentally conscious fans more of a reason to be excited.

The festival announced on Twitter yesterday that “all of Glastonbury 2023’s power needs will be met by renewable energy and renewable fuels, eliminating the need to rely on fossil fuels for power across the festival.”

All of the festival’s production areas will be powered by electricity from fossil fuel-free sources or solar battery systems. Glastonbury has also installed a temporary wind turbine to supply power to onsite vendors and all generators will run on a renewable HVO fuel – a green diesel derived from waste cooking oil.

This announcement from Glastonbury comes after the festival’s well-known Arcadia area had already announced that they would run exclusively on recycled energy, again using recycled biofuels from cooking oil. 

Affirming a reputation for trying to minimize the festival’s ecological impacts, Glastonbury has also placed disposable vapes on their ‘do not bring’ list, saying “they pollute the environment and can be hazardous at waste centers.”

More information on Glastonbury’s green policies can be found here.

Glastonbury 2023 begins tomorrow at Worthy Farm in Somerset, England, and will run from June 21-26. The lineup features performances from electronic artists such as The Chemical Brothers, Carl Cox, VTSS, Skream, Shy FX, MK, and many more.
