WHAT IS ENERGY REVOLUTION?
Energy Revolution is a charity pioneering a live events industry response to climate change, turning your tour’s travel emissions into renewable energy.
As with festivals, the majority of emissions from an artist’s tour can come from travel. Energy Revolution can help you have a significant impact on the overall carbon footprint of your tour by tackling the travel emissions associated with it.
Using our Travel Carbon Calculator you can work out the emissions from your tour travel – for individual artists, bands, production teams and even audiences, and the donation required to balance those emissions. Energy Revolution will then invest 100% of the donations in renewable energy projects; turning the negative of travel emissions into a world-changing positive investment to keep the party going forever.
The music and live events industry can be a powerful force for change, with individual actions spearheading the way for others to make changes. So whether you are an individual artist looking to balance the negative, and unavoidable impact, of tour travel emissions, or an artist agency looking to be a shining example of sustainability, sign up to Energy Revolution and inspire others to follow.

BRINGING EVERYBODY ONBOARD
Energy Revolution began by inviting festival audiences to balance their travel. Over 3 million festival-miles have now been balanced with investments in renewable energy both in India and here in the UK. Our work is inspiring others in the industry to follow and collaboration is the key.
You can be a pioneer for change by bringing artists, promoters, venues and audiences together to collectively calculate, account for and balance their travel with an investment in 100% renewable clean energy.
Have you considered bringing an artist, band, agent, promoter, venue and audience together to collectively calculate and balance the travel emissions associated with a single-gig or multi-date tour?
