Sustainable event management

With the project “Greener Fête de la Musique” we have made it our mission to reduce the ecological footprint of the Fête de la Musique Berlin. We want to make the Fête de la Musique Berlin as sustainable and climate-sensitive as possible and depend on your help!

We need your help!

This is how you can support the Greener Fête de la Musique as a music venue

In order to be able to provide you with an action plan with recommendations for a more sustainable Fête de la Musique in the future, we are asking all music venues to provide us with data this year. All organizers will receive a template for data collection before June 21 and access to an online survey afterwards.

This is how you can participate as a visitor

Especially the arrival and departure of the audience often accounts for a large part of the emissions of an event. You can help us to reduce and measure the emissions. The best way to do this is to travel on foot, by bike or by public transport and take part in our online survey on June 21, 2023.

Background and initiation

The project “Greener Fête de la Musique” was initiated in 2019 together with Dr. Birte Jung, the expert for sustainable events in public space, Jacob Bilabel, the founder of the Green Music Initiative, and the stage organizers who put on the Fête every year. In 2021, the Fête de la Musique Berlin reaffirmed this intention with a Green Deal and committed to making the major event more ecologically and socially sustainable in the future. The “Greener Fête de la Musique” project is supported by the Initiative Musik.
