Croissant Neuf


Keeping true to our ethos of a sustainable live and future you can indulge in a plethora of off-grid Solar Powered music and engage in a variety of stalls and exhibits all dedicated to our core cause, The Environment, Climate Change and Community with a shared love of our planet.

This year we welcome for the first time to our field, Dougal and Tess Stewart of Living Resource with their Solar Fire Engine and Solar panel arrays providing our off-grid power in collaboration with long standing pioneers Andy Hope, joint co-founder of Croissant Neuf and Steve Wade of Wind & Sun from Leominster – come and chat to our experts on their custom built stand.

Not only does the PA and lighting in our venue run completely off-grid, but also our backstage production office, Communications and site lighting, proving that that all you need for a good time is a field, a tent and a bit of sunshine.

However, our battery storage supplies an ever flowing torrent of musical immersion, even if the sun doesn’t shine – The music never stops!
