Ultra Music Festival presents Mission: Home
Ultra Music Festival, one of the biggest and most popular electronic music festivals in the world is bringing us some interesting sustainable and nature preserving innovations this year. To celebrate their homecoming at Bayfront Park in Miami, Florida, they have already launched massive phase 1 and phase 2 lineup announcements, including A-list names such as Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Carl Cox, Eric Prydz, Flume, Madeon, Major Lazer, Martin Garrix, Zedd and many others. A few days ago they shared a new initiative with the world called “Mission: Home”, their main goal with it being protecting our home – the world and preventing pollution. Here is what they say about the new project:
“In an effort to prevent pollution and preserve the natural elements of our home, we are excited to undertake these initiatives.
Your mission has only just commenced, stay tuned for much more information on how you can be part of #MissionHome this March!”
With climate change and pollution getting out of hand over the past couple of years, it is the right thing to do to share awareness about it, educate people and make a change in the world, especially if you have this kind of power as Ultra, with more than 160,000 people coming to the festival each year from all around the world. Their plan for Mission: Home is to educate the attendees about the sensitive wildlife and ecosystems of Biscayne Bay and what we all can do to protect and preserve them. They will be able to collect recyclable items from the grounds and exchange it for various prizes in the Eco Village at the Clean Vibes Trading Post. Free pocket ashtrays will be distributed during the event, staff and vendors will be educated on environmental initiatives and they are working hard on noise mitigation with experts from the field.
There is still much more in the works and coming soon, but their goal is clear: to leave no trace and rise the awareness about protecting planet Earth. If you want to help Ultra Music Festival with Mission: Home you can sign up here as a volunteer and become a part of the new movement this March.
