In an effort to reduce the festival’s environmental impact, the Nannup Music Festival has joined the Green Steps initiative.

Staff, artists, suppliers, crew, volunteers, audience, donors and sponsors will work together to ensure environmental sustainability is a key focus.

As part of the Green Steps Initiative, people are urged to not bring glitter or balloons, light campfires or leave rubbish behind.

Behind-the-scenes ways in which the festival organisers are reducing their environmental impact include single-use plastic-free food stalls, 100 per cent recycled toilet paper and workshops and discussions as part of the program.

The festival organisers will also continue holding the Nannup Emerging Artists Award.

As part of the award, 10 artists are selected to perform two original songs and recording time with supporting sponsors.

Festival organisers are planning for the event to be COVID-19 safe.
