However hard they try, music festivals are never going to be green – until now if digital radio company PURE has its way. Billed as the Credit Crunch Festival, the company encourages you to listen to the radio (a PURE one of course), invite a few friends over, sit in your garden and enjoy.
All you need to do is listen to coverage of a festival on the radio and it’ll be like you’re there. Sort of.
