It's a festival beyond hedonism for people who love the earth enough to celebrate and save it; a place to party - then wake up and put the world to rights!
With an authentically uncommercial, family friendly and transformative experience, the festival aims to turn people on to community building and low impact solutions. It's about providing food, energy, health and shelter without degrading the planet. It's about future families.

Workshops in traditional crafts compete for attention with intimate live music venues, permaculture gardening, radical cinema, campaign stalls, activist training, wood-fired saunas and campfire sessions.

The Green Gathering has a wide ranging, continually evolving Sustainability Policy covering power, land and resource use, travel, trading and social impact.
The festival aims to be inclusive, incorporating a well-regarded Assisted Access team and LGBTIQ space.
