Luminate aims to go further than the three R’s, encouraging participants into a new era of ownership, creating less “waste” at source. All participants, suppliers and crew are empowered with inspiring initiatives that are educational and informative. Pioneering closed loop systems and guidelines support these initiatives that reach far out from the event site.
The Luminate Clean Environment Strategy covers all areas of the festival, from crew, suppliers and participants and is considered in every decision made at every level.
Big efforts have been made at Luminate to maximise energy efficiency from natural sources. Hand built systems exist in nearly all areas of the festival!
Canaan Downs provides Luminate with crystal clear, cool and refreshing spring water, the way nature intended it to be. Innovative and effective water management systems naturally filter all greywater to be returned to the land, reducing wastage and chemical treatments.
Conscious Food is a key part of the Luminate lifestyle. From the five Luminate run ‘Lumi Cafes’ to the Market Spirals’ food stalls, measures are in place to ensure you get the best organic superfood laden nutrient dense fuel to keep you full power for the late nights and sunny days!
Luminate chooses to run 5 of the main cafes on site and is making networks in the community to provide food for the festival on a large scale
Our environmental ethos even extends into our marketing and promotions. Well researched stationary sourcing and values aligned merchandise is just the tip of the iceberg.
Luminate’s transport initiatives stretch from pre festival delivery scheduling and lift sharing to vehicle restrictions on site and a reclaimed bicycle pool for crew! Luminate believes in putting emphasis on localising carbon offsetting; introducing a land management scheme reclaiming the land from grazing and planting native trees.
