Queenscliff Music Festival is a finalist in the Premier's Sustainability Awards 2020 – Environmental Protection category.

QMF's War on Waste

Queenscliff Music Festival's concerted 'War on Waste' effort to improve their sustainability credentials was a resounding success when 95% of waste generated by the event was diverted from landfill.

With a 24,000 attendance, just 178kg of waste was sent to landfill – a staggering 82% year-on-year decrease. The event achieved this through becoming the first of its size to become fully reusable, with all vendors serving reusable crockery, cups and cutlery, upcycling build waste and actively ensuring cleaner grounds for patrons to encourage more conscious waste disposal behaviour.
