Glastonbury Festival to Support 'I Count' Environmental Campaign

Published: 2007-05-31
The U.K. Glastonbury Festival of music and performing arts, the world's biggest on open and undeveloped land, will be supporting the campaign against global warming this year and encouraging those who attend the festival to do the same.

Taking place between June 22nd- 24th at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset, just outside of Glastonbury, the festival is partnering up with I Count in an attempt to get at least 100,000 concertgoers to sign a campaign that urges them to "take 16 steps in their everyday lives to reduce their carbon footprint", NME.com reports.

Each ticket holder will be given an I Count wristband that reads, "We can stop climate chaos" to remind them of the campaign's objective. The Stop Climate Chaos coalition, Oxfam, Greenpeace and WaterAid are among the supporters of the I Count campaign.
