Festival Description

Sunrise goes Off Grid each August on a gorgeous organic site in Somerset. This camp is a deep exploration of community living, creativity and consciousness, with hands-on activities, talks, workshops, performance, music, art and celebration. Off Grid is about creating a space for empowerment, where festival goers will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience on the steps that need to be taken to increase energy efficency. There will be lots of practical information, from how to make a boiler use less fuel to installing a wind generator. Whether the dream is an inner city vegetable patch or living on the land, Off Grid will be a showcase of what is possible and available to everyone, no matter what their lifestyles.

As a family focused event Off Grid will have loads of activities for children, with a kids’ village and fun workshops especially tailored for them on how they can help their families help the environment. They are the ones who will inherit the planet and the knowledge and information on how to look after it is something that can be given to them right now.

“We are really excited about Off-Grid, and are looking forward to an event that is inspiring, fun and radical, where we can all journey together into a Greener future. So bring along the whole family to eat from nature, sit in ceremony, design the future, walk on hot coals and move beyond your perceived limits. It’s an opportunity to marvel at earth’s mysteries, Rebirth your wild side, or just relax and soak up that famous Sunrise vibe of love, celebration and joy”.

Off-grid is powered by clean, renewable energy, with site wide organic food and drink, compostable packaging, plates and cutlery, and numerous other initiatives making this the Greenest event of the year. Sunrise Off Grid is run by a Community Interest Company, CIC’s invest their profits back into the community, building a world beyond monetary profit.
