“Thank you so much to LIVE Awards for making AGF the winner of the inaugural LIVE Green Award. We’re over the moon and big up to the whole #AGF team, our assessors, and everyone who has supported and worked with us for a greener live sector over the many years since we began.”
“After nearly 2 decades dedicated to greening the live industry we’re so happy to receive this award, not only as recognition for our work, but also as another sign that the live music sector values sustainability and is now taking it seriously.”
“What’s most encouraging is that sustainability is finally being taken seriously by the live music and entertainment industry so we can galvanise our influence and responsibility to make things better for everyone. Time to get real and get creative.”
