Serbian festival EXIT has announced a new environmental initiatve called LIFE STREAM that they are debuting at ADE this year. The party will be headlined by ARTBAT and present an award to 16-year old Swedish eco-activist Greta Thunberg, who is making climate change deniers scared and mad.
The event will take place October 18 at the Faralda Crane Hotel with Coeus, After Affair, Andrew Meller and DJ Jock supporting ARTBAT. A major goal of LIFE STREAM is to live stream their events and through the stream, viewers will be encouraged to donate to support humanitarian and environmental projects. The event will take place from 7pm to 12am local time. Get more details on the event including tickets here.
“We have witnessed lately an avalanche of comments on Greta’s appearance, tone and gestures, we have heard numerous conspiracy theories and many other, completely irrelevant topics, with all those voices seemingly ignoring the essence – that the data that Greta Thunberg states is accurate and scientifically confirmed,” says stated EXIT’s founder Dušan Kovačević. “Skeptics who do not believe these facts will do so in 5 to 10 years, when they see with their own eyes the devastating consequences of climate change. Our planet does not need saving, it will survive everything, it is the people and the life around us that does.”
EXIT will take this concept to their 20-year anniversary festival next summer in July, where they hope for an even bigger impact to “call the world leaders and people everywhere to take immediate action.”
