Join us for a four-day weekend full of remote island frolicking, beach clean-ups, dinners, and live electronic music performances on the Andaman Islands. The thought behind this not-for-profit event is raising awareness about the critical problems our planet is facing as a result of continued plastic accumulation. We’re working together with a local initiative, ‘Kachrewaale-The Waste People’ to ensure that the beach clean-ups are appropriately managed and documented. Producers and live performers Jacob Groening, O/Y, ĀRĀ, Troja, Robosonic, Stephanie Szankay, Kosha and Richie Thomas, amongst other beloved artists will be enhancing the experience with their beautiful music throughout our stay. The dates for the holiday are Thursday to Monday, 23rd - 27th January 2020.
Today will be just about meeting on the island (location released to ticketholders only) in the evening at 6, at a favourite beach restaurant of ours.
Starting today, we’ll take up the clean-up drive head-on. You’ll receive a map and the program in your room the same morning, as the schedule is dependant on the tides. We all meet again in the evening at 5 for a community buffet and slow dance music on the beach, with artists who are coming all the way from Berlin, New York and India! Fresh warm snacks will also be available to purchase throughout the evening.
Our second beach cleanup day starts at our agreed info point and takes place at different locations and will continue until 5 in the evening when we gather for a crew meet-up with yummy local food and slow dancing on the beach.
We meet for a ‘Wasted Treasure Hunt’ and for one last celebration of all our work over the weekend, at our final crew gathering where there'll be food, music and dancing late into the night.
The beauty of the Andamans is better experienced than imagined. The island where you’ll be putting up boasts of kilometre-long beaches with white sand, all of which stay untouched by human development. Some things you can look forward to in your time here are: - Excellent snorkelling, diving, and shore/sea fishing throughout the day. - Jungle walks, secret beach hikes, and lots of places to explore. - Restaurants offering freshly prepared food from locally procured ingredients.
We will release the name of the island to ticket holders only. It has a population of less than 5000 and is only 15 sq. km in area, with a fragile ecosystem that balances tourism and resources. Some would argue that this balance has already been lost and that the island's natural state is threatened to a point that continued inhabitation may be impossible. Keeping the island's identity a secret except to the ticketholders is important to protect this ecosystem, as has been advised by locally based NGO representatives.
