Party with the Planet Intro


Led by Green Music Australia, Party with the Planet is an alliance consisting of major music festivals, promoters, artists, social enterprises, and nonprofits, with the aim to tackle challenging environmental issues faced by the festival sector, with a key focus on waste mitigation at festival campsites. 

To date, we've held seven roundtables bringing members together to share solutions, ideas and challenges to address environmental challenges. Read about roundtables held in 2023 here.

The alliance was launched in 2019 with a campaign which saw artists including Hilltop Hoods, The Veronicas and Angie McMahon encourage their fans to pledge to be more environmentally conscious at festivals. Watch the video below.

Research we commissioned to support the alliance shows over 50% of waste generated at music festivals is campsite litter - read the full report here. We’ve got to do better! That’s why we’re reaching out to all music lovers this year and asking them to join the movement, by keeping their campsite clean, and taking everything home.

Green Music Australia interviewed 880 festival-goers at Unify Gathering, Party in the Paddock, and Falls Festival. The resulting analysis by consultants AT Kearney identified 5 key behavioural drivers:

1. Breakages – people were significantly more likely to leave damaged tents behind
2. Social Proof – 63% of people believed it wasn’t their responsibility to clean up if they saw someone else leaving rubbish behind
3. Lack of Connect to the Festival
4. Disregard for One’s Own Tent (not caring what stat it is in at the end of the festival)
5. Urgency to Leave – 48% of people just wanted to ‘get the hell out of here’ on the final day.

Over 3,700 music lovers have signed our pledge to be a caretaker, buy less, choose better, and take it all home.
