Ireland's first carbon neutral music festival will take place in June in County Clare, with top Irish and international artists performing. The annual Doolin Folk Festival has built a following as one of Ireland's most popular music festivals. The three-day festival will be hosted in the Barn of Hotel Doolin, the first carbon neutral hotel in Ireland and winner of Ireland's Greenest Business at the Green Awards 2022. Single-use and plastic packaging and printed programs will be banned at this year's festival, while wrist bands will be compostable. All energy used will be from renewable sources, and organizers will be planting 500 native trees onsite with hometree.ie prior to the event. "If a small festival like us can achieve carbon neutrality and pay a fair rate to performers then there is no reason the bigger festivals, with all their resources and profit generated, cannot strive to do the same," said the organizers.
