In 2022, 90% of Body & Soul’s carbon emissions arose from travel and transport. In fact, travel and transport in Ireland continues to be a major issue for rural green field festivals.
At Body & Soul, we do a few things to tackle this. Firstly we measure our transport, both from an attendee perspective and production, understanding your impact is the first step in reducing it. We work as much as possible with local suppliers, use permanent staging, and reuse materials year on year to reduce the transport of goods to the site.
Buses to Body & Soul have always been an option but this year we are taking even more steps to encourage you away from your cars. In 2023 we are working with Bus Eireann and Irish Rail with combo train and bus shuttle tickets available to and from the festival.
