Fundamental to our ethos is the wildlife and fauna that covers the festival site. Finally, we wanted to explain our ongoing plan to leave a positive trace on our Mountain.
We are working closely with the Bulgarian government to help the local community by bringing much needed business to the area.
Historically the country has been invaded and conquered by the Roman Empire, Gengis Khan, Alexander the Great As a result the local area has a rich cultural heritage including ancient Thracian sites such as Perperikon and Tatul; medieval castles, churches, monasteries and scenic villages with traditional Bulgarian architecture from 18th and 19th century.
It is through this very tradition that the Sasse family and friends have the most great and humble pleasure in inviting you all to cast aside your daily woes, shrug off the binding chains of the 9-5 and indulge in a debauched weekend of mind-expanding experience, community and free spirit to skip through the fields and forests with untamed abandon and to lay with the fireflies and nighttime skies in the long grass.
That is why we have several policies in place to protect it: 1) Leave no trace: Leave the mountain in its natural state.
All packaging used on site must be either multiple use or biodegradable.
This year, we are introducing compostable toilets and food composting bins so that we can turn what we have always thought of as waste into a powerful material for vegetative regeneration of our environment on the mountain.
