We want to make it easy for our audiens to travel environmentally friendly to Øyafestivalen. Being located in the city center gives us a great advantage, and the last couple of years about 98 percent of our visitors have traveled green – either by foot, bike or with publish transportation. We have our own bicycle parking space for cirka 1000 bikes, with security in the festival’s opening hours, where you’d also be able to get minor repairs done for free during the whole festival.
Through good planning and low-emission vehicles, Øyafestivalen also aims to reduce emissions from our own internal transport. This year we are also trying out electrical forklifts and loaders – In hopes that we can get an emissions-free building site in a few years.
We also strive to select local suppliers and encourage suppliers near each other to coordinate deliveries.
