Hard Rock Calling encouraging sustainable festival travel
People are being encouraged to make their way to the Hard Rock Calling festival in an environmentally-friendly way.
The organisers have made it easy for music lovers to improve the carbon footprint of their trip with a special scheme.
When buying Hard Rock Calling tickets, individuals are being given the option to add 50p extra to their charge on the shipping page.
This money will go toward offsetting the greenhouse gases that will be emitted when they travel to the festival, as it will be invested in environmental projects being run by local schools.
"We are committed to encouraging and providing more sustainable transport options," the organisers stated.
The educational institutions that are given the cash are following the Eco-Schools international award programme and will come up with ideas for projects once the donations are coming in.
Each proposal will be described on the Hard Rock Calling website and one will be chosen to receive festival goers' support.
Bruce Springsteen is the only act to have been confirmed for the line-up so far, although there have been rumours that Radiohead and Kasabian are also set to play.
