Sustainability initiatives

As part of the festival’s commitment to sustainability, new activations were introduced to minimize environmental impact and promote eco-friendly practices. The iconic Moon 2 Mars display was revamped with a reusable inflatable, replacing the previous single-use balloon display. Additionally, festival-goers had the opportunity to bust out their dance moves on the kinetic dancefloor, where their movements generated renewable energy to power LED lights. Furthermore, attendees explored the Space X Falcon 9 Booster exhibit, showcasing the future of space travel through reusable technology.

Activation Concept

In response to the client’s need for an engaging entertainment activation, Energy Floors provided a kinetic dancefloor with a personalized energy dashboard and a 230cm tall LED battery display. This bespoke installation not only entertained festival-goers but also introduced them to the concept of sustainable energy generation through human movement. By merging entertainment with technology and sustainability, the activation aimed to inspire curiosity and interest in science among attendees, particularly children and young adults.
