Mother nature looks after us. Let’s look after her too!

Running an ethical, sustainable event that minimises any negative impact Magical has on the environment is super-important to us. We’re committed to the following initiatives – some big, some small. We’re asking for your help too!


  • We’ve gone veggie/vegan. No meat or fish will be on the Magical menu with our food vendors.
  • We’ll be using paper/vegware cups.
  • It’s the FINAL STRAW with plastic straws! They’re banned at Magical. Forever. (We have some paper straws available for anyone that has a specific need to use a straw to drink.)
  • All food vendors will use compostable or recyclable serveware.
  • Grey waste is taken away to an safe, off-site drainage facility.
  • No paper/plastic cups will be used by crew – all volunteers have been asked to bring reusable mugs with them.
  • We support travel to the festival by bike.


  • Bring a reusable water bottle with you and fill this up from the water points around the site.
  • Bring a re-usable coffee cup or mug with you for hot drinks!
  • PLEASE don’t pee on the lovely land – use the loos provided.
  • Put rubbish away in the bins (there are lots around the site!)
  • Make an Energy Revolution carbon donation to offset your travel to Magical! It’s easy to do – simply add the donation when you purchase your Magical 2019 ticket.
  • Pack up your tent and take it home with you, together with all your other personal belongings. Leave no trace!
  • Car share with other people to get to Magical.


This year we’re working with the charity Energy Revolution to help tackle the environmental impact from audience travel, which can account for up to 80% of the average festival’s carbon footprint!

Balance your festival journey emissions with a small donation – 100% of which will go directly to projects that generate clean, renewable energy.

If you already balanced your travel when you bought your ticket then a massive THANK YOU but if you missed the chance, you can still text ENRG01 £3 to 70070.
