Wide Awake has partnered with the world’s leading climate change publication, It’s Freezing in L.A!, to create the first-ever Climate Cafe, which will take place on the official World Environment Day at the festival. We will be hosting workshops that will provide solid, useful information on issues from local activism to your carbon impact. All activities will alternate with a curation of DJs from London-local Jamie Travis from the electro-dream band, Babeheaven, moving the ECODISCO into the tent as the sun falls across Brockwell Park for the end of day Climate Party
