What works at a festival, can be applied to the real world!
The greenest festival location of the north has a line-up of artists, musicians, chefs, and start-ups, encouraging discussion and thinking outside of the box. The festival as a provisional society, a mini-community.
A world that works
Welcome to The Village is four days of partying, but is also about what the world will look like in 5 or maybe even 50 years time. During innovation project DORP and later at the festival, people will be working on solutions for the future. This process is based on the idea that if an idea or a new prototype works at a festival, there’s a possibility it will work in the “real world”. Each year during the festival, hundreds of students, musicians, artists, volunteers, designers, scientists and festival visitors are working on a better world and a completely circular festival for 2022.
Everyone gets involved
The festival teams up with quite a few local caterers and farmers, works with volunteers to build its own stages and, for the festival design, we work with people in a day-care program and senior citizens. And of course they’ll all be dropping by to have a look at the end result. Because Welcome to The Village truly is for everyone.
