Paradies Garten Festival 2023

Embracing the Green Beat: 100% powered by Renewable Energy!

Get ready to immerse yourself in the vibrant rhythms of Austria’s most sustainable music festival as Paradies Garten returns for its highly anticipated second edition from August 4th to 6th. Nestled within the magnificent Schloss Prugg in Bruck an der Leitha, this year’s festival promises an unforgettable experience fueled by an unwavering commitment to sustainability.

We are thrilled to announce that Paradies Garten is taking an audacious leap forward by becoming the first major event of its kind to run entirely on 100% renewable energy. This groundbreaking decision will see the entire festival site powered by locally generated wind and solar energy, igniting a beacon of hope for the future of eco-conscious events.

In close partnership with Energiepark Bruck an der Leitha, our visionary collaboration brings this sustainable vision to life. The festival’s power supply, for the entirety of its three-day extravaganza, will be sourced directly from the local power grid. This bold initiative is not merely symbolic; it will result in a staggering reduction of 12,500 kg of CO2 emissions and eliminate the consumption of 5,000 liters of diesel fuel. Together, we are setting a new standard for the festival and event industry, demonstrating that harmony between nature and music is not only possible but essential.

Paradies Garten’s steadfast dedication to reducing our ecological footprint is showcased by our ongoing publication of CO2 balances. Last year, we proudly received the “CO2 Neutral Seal,” solidifying our commitment to transparency and environmental responsibility. As we strive to become Austria’s greenest music festival, we continue to explore innovative ways to enhance sustainability in all aspects of our operation.

Our remarkable collaboration with ÖBB as a Green Mobility Partner has proven instrumental in curbing CO2 emissions caused by transportation. By providing free night trains from Bruck an der Leitha to Vienna, we have successfully reduced the environmental impact of our visitors’ journeys. Last year, nearly two-thirds of our attendees embraced this eco-friendly mode of transport, resulting in a remarkable reduction of over 50% in transportation-related emissions. Together, we are redefining the way festivals can embrace sustainable mobility.

Our partnership with Energiepark Bruck an der Leitha holds a special significance, as it allows us to tap into clean, green, and CO2-free electricity generated in close proximity to the festival site. Their wind farms and Sonnenfeld agri-photovoltaic plant, mere kilometers away, symbolize the power of local collaboration in driving positive change. Together, we embrace sustainability and regionality as vital elements in shaping a better future.

Beyond our commitment to renewable energy, Paradies Garten is continuously raising the bar for environmental practices within the festival landscape. Last year, we championed a ban on single-use plastics, introduced reusable cups, and implemented an efficient waste management system. This year, we are furthering our sustainable vision by addressing the energy supply challenge head-on.

In addition to our commitment to sustainability, Paradies Garten proudly embraces a cashless future. Through our partnership with Mastercard and Global Payments, we offer an open payment system that eliminates the need for cash or wristbands. Attendees can effortlessly make payments with their ATM or credit cards, as well as their smartphones, at all bars and food stands. Together, we are embracing the convenience and security of cashless transactions, while minimizing waste and streamlining the festival experience.

Join us at Paradies Garten Festival 2023 as we celebrate the power of music and sustainability. Let’s harmonize our collective energy, dance under the stars, and pave the way for a future where festivals and the environment thrive hand in hand. Together, we can create a symphony of change that resonates far beyond the festival grounds. Let the green beat unite us all.
