Go greener

We urge you to think green in your approach, which includes the following guidelines:

  • We encourage you to use biodegradable packaging, paper cups/plates/knives/forks, recycled napkins, NO plastic straws, return cups/buckets and minimal glass for safety.
  • If you are in need of an eco-friendly supplier for packaging or serving materials please contact us on [email protected] as we can help you with this – not just for the festival but going forward as well.
  • Concerning buckets, it must not exceed 1 litre in volume and it can’t be hard plastic material! Buckets MUST have a pant system associated with it.
  • It is recommended that you have some kind of logo or branding on a bucket so you know whether the bucket was purchased at your bar(s). In general we recommend using containers/buckets that can be returnable in your bar(s) with a fixed price attached, so the guests are able to deliver them back.
  • You are responsible for your own trash and must take this with you at the end of each day to ensure the area around your stall is clean. For your own sake we advise you to sort out your trash in the different categories mentioned above.

Electricity

  • For the street parties you must provide electricity and water and connect this yourself. If you need help with this, Distortion can contact the electricity provider for an affordable price.
  • For Distortion Ø there is 1 x 13A, 1 phase 230V power source included in the price. There is no water connection, but there is access to fresh water. If you need more this can be purchased at an affordable price.
