We’ve teamed up with Yackandandah Community Development Company (YCDCo) to fund 3kW of their 12kW yEnergy solar installation. Located onsite at the community owned Yackandandah Farm and Fuel outlet, the Folk Festival’s contribution will generate enough renewable energy to offset the electricity usage of the festival. The permanent installation is believed to be an Australian first for Folk Festivals. We’re proud to be taking responsibility for our impact on the environment and continuing to host a great weekend of entertainment. These panels will indirectly neutralise the carbon emissions associated with the festival. This initiative was recently featured in the Border Mail’s Pulse section.
Less than two weeks to go to this year’s festival. Check out this YouTube playlist we’ve put together that features this year’s lineup. The best little festival around just keeps getting better (if we do say so ourselves!)
Thanks to our fantastic sponsors for the 2014 Yackandandah Folk Festival – All Mod Steel Buildings, Anything Solar, The Border Mail, Foodworks, Hume Building Society, Indigo Shire, Kleenheat Gas, Landcare, North East Water, WAW Credit Union.
