This year IDW Budapest accepts the challenge to aim towards a more sustainable future.
We wish to make our festival greener and try to leave our footprints only on the dance floor!

Therefor IDW Budapest encourages the participants to

Avoid single use plastics, bring your own refillable water bottle to the festival.

Our tasty lunch is cooked by a small restaurant from fresh ingredients from the daily market without any preservatives or additives. We recommend a vegetarian lunch, but if you are craving that extra protein, don’t worry, our meat hasn’t travelled from other countries nor seen single plastic packaging.
The IDW Bar offers great homemade sandwiches, cakes, coffee, tea and lemonade from natural ingredients to keep you energized and chilled between all the hot dancing.
...and of course homemade Palinka shot to finish the day.

We keep our studios, toilets, bathrooms, bar and common spaces clean with ecological cleaning supplies to protect nature.
We recommend the use of natural soaps in the shower.

If you can re-use it, don’t toss it ! If you can’t, then find the suitable place for it amongst our recycling bins.

Our IDW 2021 T-shirt is 100% organic cotton and hand coloured with 100% natural colouring ingredients, by Balazs
