Go green at Electric Picnic with Electric Ireland and Mr Motivator!

Following the success of Dancergy in 2012, 90s fitness expert Mr Motivator is back to power the picnic with a series of Dancergy sessions on the Electric Ireland sustainable energy dancefloor.

In addition, this year a limited number of festival goers will be able to light up the picnic at night with 5,000 Dancergy bands available from the Electric Ireland tent. Created by Xylobands and seen at the Coldplay Mylo Xyloto World Tour, these LED wristbands will be powered on by Twitter using the hashtag #dancergy.

With the installation of a sustainable energy dance floor at the Electric Ireland tent at Electric Picnic, Mr Motivator will lead daily dance sessions where festival goers will have the opportunity to take to the floor and generate power as the dancefloor converts the kinetic energy of dancing people into electricity.

Other measures that Electric Ireland are undertaking in line with the sustainability ethos of the festival include the provision of 6km of energy efficient festoon lighting around the camp sites and walk ways to the main arena to reduce the festival’s lighting emissions by 80% and a bank of 25 solar panels to contribute towards the power requirement on site.
