Many said you could never hold a large, multi-day music festival without using disposible cups. Splore Festival and Globelet proved the naysayers wrong. The decision to go disposible cup free was however, not a small one. Massive infrastructure changes were necessary to ensure that festival goers, musicians and staff still have easy access to water and drinking containers. Splore, with the help of Globelet, continues to create the model of a truly sustainable, disposible-free festival. We are proud to work alongside them, now in our 3rd year as a partner
