GLOBAL GREEN ECOVILLAGE

AN OASIS OF CREATIVITY AND COMMUNITY

Cultivate, the collective based in Cloughjordan Ecovillage, will once again be coordinating the Electric Picnic’s pop-up eco-village of activists, artists, makers, musicians, foodies and poets. Global Green is the conscious heartbeat of the Electric Picnic; a cutting-edge nexus of green ideas and connections. Experience brilliant new music, eat great gloriously local food and encounter radical ideas and activities for a community-led future.

Global Green 2017 sm

In the Village Hall we will be keeping a finger on Ireland’s musical pulse with atmospheric, electronic, acoustic and folk music by day and house, reggae, global and hip-hop beats by night. This year we introduce R&B newcomer Charlotte Headon’s soulful laidback style and Irish/Canadian Electronic Dark-Pop duo Honey Beard. From the authentic folk songstress Hanora George to our favourite Friday party starters RobotRock bringing you live dance anthems. From the movie Sing Street’s very own Zamo Riffman’s acoustic hooks to DJ Teknonotice’s Electro Swing, NuJazz & World Beats. We’ve even got an interactive dance performance SLSD from Cork’s own No Kissin’ Ensemble, an interpretation of Children of Lir and spoken word from Scene of the Rhyme featuring Ireland’s most talented wordsmiths. And don’t miss our now legendary Sunday Night Shakedown, our closing party in the wee small hours with Anacalypsis, Pressure Drop Sounds (Ollie Moore and Paul Ryan) and Suzanarchy. So keep it locked on the Village Hall.

Get comfy and get animated in the Convergence Cafe with Ireland's leading change-makers and activists. Teas and cake will be served, while discussions and talks take place on global and local themes. Experience kirtan, comedy, spoken word and chilled-out tunes. Get inspired, engaged, and add your voice to the conversation. In the early evening a heady brew of food, poetry, compelling conversations and music make up the SpeakEATsy. This convivial experience is far more than the sum of its parts, a confluence of influences and inspirations - a full sensory and intellectual workout!

On the green a colourful cadre of organisations give us theatre, African drumming with INIKÉ, rustic games, and stalls. Our community garden, resplendent with art and surprises, plants seeds for positive social change and inclusion. Conversations, demonstrations, the Potato Box Talks and the Incredible Edibles will all happen in Agri-Aware’s Red Shed.

Global Green Cycling Campaign

The best way to start the day? Shake off that fuzzy head and stretch out the body with Global Green’s kick-off yoga session – then hang out on the green for the best coffee and breakfast on site. Whether you want to dance, eat, get involved, inform yourself or just chill out, this green oasis is a must-visit over the festival weekend.
