Make your festival
stand out from the crowd.


SolarBuddy festival program is utilising the inherent power festivals harness to shape attitudes, thoughts, beliefs, and actions to create a cleaner, greener and more equitable planet for everyone. We are uniting our powerful global community over the goal of restoring the environment and improving the lives of the next generation, by placing the power to make a difference in your hands.

You can help raise awareness and educate festival goers, as well as inspire them to take positive action against the impact events can have on the environment by tackling campsite waste whilst improving the lives of millions of children living in energy poverty.

We do this by providing festival campers with a Festival SolarBuddy light to use throughout your event, to return and donate at the end.

Audience Engagement

Create a unique atmosphere, enhancing audience engagement and human connection through a shared lived experience.

C02 Reduction

Your festival attendees can offset a portion of their carbon footprint through the use and donation of their Festival SolarBuddy light.

Waste Reduction

Using a Festival SolarBuddy light instead of a disposable torch can actively reduce campsite waste. Social proof in seeing others doing the right thing is proven to have a carry on behavioural effect.

Social Impact

Illuminate the futures of millions of children devastated by energy poverty and help them break the cycle of poverty they are born into through education, thanks to the gift of light.

Artist's Choice

Be recognised as the artists’ festival of choice by aligning your festival with the same social and environmental values more and more artists are placing at the heart of what they do.


Bluesfest are very proud to have SolarBuddy as an official festival partner. Although the 2020 festival did not take place, we are so excited about continuing our partnership into the future and look forward to expanding our collaboration into 2021 and beyond
