A festival beyond hedonism
Join us for four days of low impact living in an area of outstanding beauty, every nook and corner bursting with music, comedy, creativity, campaigns and natural abundance. The original off-grid festival, we're 100% powered by sun, wind and people.
Intimate solar stages showcase up-and-coming acts, legendary festival favourites, DJs, poets and spellbinding raconteurs. Share wisdom and skills; find friends old and new; weave, weld and tell stories.
Have a party...then wake up and put the world to rights. Take the festival spirit home with you.
Be inspired. Make change.

Green Gathering is the greenest festival in the UK. Here's why:
In 2019, we recycled a whopping 73% of all waste generated at our festival.
Our festival is completely off-grid. Our needs are met by sun, wind, and people!
All of our caterers are vegetarian and most offer vegan options. At least a third are exclusively vegan.
Single-use plastics have been banned in our bars and food stalls since 2015.
The Green Gathering is a showcase of real life, low-impact alternatives. Its focus is education for sustainability, with the emphasis that education should be hands-on and fun. The festival’s philosophy is ‘beyond hedonism’ and we aim to provide an environment where creativity can be applied to ecological and social dilemmas in a tapestry of skill-sharing and entertainment, all powered by wind, sun, people and passion.
Festival-goers frequently say that attendance at a Green Gathering inspired them to change their outlook, habits and lifestyle. Where many festivals are all about forgetting responsibilities and enjoying the show, GG aims to trigger a sense of responsibility and to equip festival-goers with the mindset and skills to transform their lives, and the world, for the better.
