Notion Highlight: We Love Green Festival 2019

We take a look back at the stellar performances and some of the most beautiful images captured last weekend at We Love Green in Paris by four extremely talented photographers.

A fun packed all green weekend filled with nothing but joy, happiness and positive vibes took place last weekend at We Love Green in Paris. With an incredible line-up over the space of two days followed by magical environmentally friendly performances from Erykah Badu, Christine and the Queens, Bonobo, Rex Orange County, Kali Uchis, Future and many many more!

 

Creating a space for all to party till dawn in the most ethical manner, We Love Green are planting 80,000 trees with ECOSIA, to reach their total aim of one tree per festival goer which is equivalent to 2400 tonnes of CO2 sequestration per year. As well as growing for future generations, We Love Green have spent their two fun-packed festival days trialling a new hydrogen generator prototype and a solar energy farm next to the festival site to create a 100% fossil fuel free environment for all. Spreading their green thumbs as far as a European music festival can, these nature lovers have decided to give back to our planet by going 100% plastic free, with free spring and sparkling water taps at the bars and over 10,000 compostable gourds, carafes and dishes used all day, all night. With plenty more green initiative projects crafted in the festival’s hands, We Love Green are offsetting GHG emissions, so all artists travelling to the festival by plane will directly compensate their GHG emissions by investing in local biodiversity restoration projects too!

 

We take a look back at some of the stellar performances and stunning photography captured by four incredibly talented photographers Gemma Ross, Romaine Bassenne, Julien Mignot and Claire Gaby at the green thumb festival, who are best known as the world’s leading sustainable festival that are using the beauty of music as an instrument to express solidarity and to provoke worldwide social change.

 

Spreading her ethereal powers and magical crystal energy out to the crowd, Erykah Badu took over the main stage at We Love Green! Romaine Bassenne and Julien Mignot captured a few stunning moments of our earthy queen throughout her angelic performance. Badu was sure to start the night off right by transcending the crowd to her musical dimensions.

Making a very green appearance and landing fresh into Paris, American Rapper Future takes his mic and fiery lyricism to the stage on Sunday evening, turning Paris into his rap battlefield. On Saturday, the Berlin-Korean sounds of Peggy Gou spinning the decks all evening turned heads and filled dance floors with her electronic sunshine vibes.

Igniting for her first ever French appearance, Spanish songstress Rosalia’s performance was one filled of high energy sounds and very elaborate choreography. Beautifully mixing the sounds of power of the cante, flamenco singing, and the intonations of R’n’B on pop melodies she has firmly positioned her sound over France and we are sure they are yearning for Rosalia’s possible 2020 appearance.
