The Show Will Go On

Festival Vision:2025 exceeds funding target, securing the publication of a new Show Must Go On report, signalling the UK festival and event industry’s ambition to tackle environmental impacts. 

The Festival Vision:2025 crowdfunding campaign, launched by not-for-profit Powerful Thinking, has raised over 28k to fund a campaign to provide leadership around climate breakdown through the Vision 2025’s strategy. 

Work starts in earnest on the new The Show Must Go On Report,and the report will launch at an industry event in December, with limited edition printed report and a free downloadable version on the new online ‘Vision2025 Knowledge Hub’ providing comprehensive, practical resources and advice. 

Ahead of the report’s launch Powerful Thinking will be hosting the third annual Festival Vision:2025 conference at The Showman’s Show on the 16th October; a chance to learn more about the Vision, meet the experts who’ll be writing and researching the report, and event organisers and suppliers who are leading the way in sustainable practices. This is the 3rdannual edition of the Vision event and for the first year it is open to all delegates to The Showman’s Show as well as to event organisers who have committed to cutting their impacts by 50% by 2025 with Vision 2025. 

The appetite for the project reflects the industry’s commitment to taking responsibility for cutting environmental impacts. Initiatives launched over this season and last year show the dramatic shift towards more sustainable event management across the UK, with events working together and taking their audiences, suppliers and artists with them in their journey.
