New Benchmarks for Festival Fuel Consumption

Julie’s Bicycle has developed and published a set of benchmarks to help UK festivals compare their environmental performance against the industry average for venues, cultural buildings, offices and outdoor events.

Findings based on 13 UK festivals spanning 2011- 2013, with audiences of 20,000+, revealed that fuel use averaged 0.7 litres per person, per day. The festivals engaged with the Industry Green certification scheme used an average of 28% waste vegetable oil (WVO) biodiesel.
