Sustainability at Surfana Festival

After a very successful 2022 Festival we want to keep the momentum in constantly working to improve sustainability at Surfana Festival! Needless to say we are once again taking sustainability to the next level, and we want you to join us in our mission to become a low-waste festival. We’ve partnered with small and big initiatives to make this change happen and create a sustainable future.

Stay green and keep it clean

We aim to produce as little waste as possible and recycle as much as we can. Last year we teamed up with SEAVENTS Responsible Event Solutions to achieve our goal of becoming a zero-waste festival, and will partner up with them in this years edition. We kindly ask you to sort your waste correctly and avoid bringing any waste, especially plastic, onto the festival terrain. Our waste stations are set up with two bins: a big bin for all cups, plates, bowls, cutlery, and food scraps that we will directly transform into compost on-site, and a small bin for all other waste. Let’s recover as many resources as possible and keep the festival area single-use plastic-free.

Waste = Recourse

Please be mindful and sort your waste correctly so we can recover as much as possible recourses. Our waste stations are setup with two bins. 1 big bin for all cups / plates / bowls / cutlery & food scraps which we will directly transform into compost on-site. 1 Small bin for all other waste. We kindly request all visitors to not bring any waste, especially plastic, onto the festival terrain.

Wildlife adventure

The campsite that hosts the festival is surrounded by a nature reserve called the Kennemer Dunes. These dunes are home to beautiful creatures, so please stay on the paths and take your trash with you. We have foxes, European bison, wild horses, rabbits, deer and many other creatures living around the campsite so keep your food safe and clean up after yourself. If you are nice to the animals, they’ll be nice to you.


We kindly request all smokers to take care of their cigarette litter and use the STÜB – Pocket Ashtray’s that will be available on the festival terrain.


All our waste is compostable and will be composted on-site directly. At the end of the festival, before you leave, stop by the composting zone, and take home some black gold to treat your plants well.

Leave nothing but sand castles

It’s awesome that the beach is just a hop over the dunes, but whatever your intentions are on the beach, make sure you bring all waste back with you . We love our the North Sea with all our hearts and want to protect her from trash, cigarette butts and toxins.

All decoration is made from recycled materials. 


We offer a variety of vegan and vegetarian food, and the meat is sourced sustainably. All our food and drinks are served on real plates or biodegradable disposables. Let’s make the whole festival plastic-free together and bring no single-use plastic disposables to the festival.

Join us in our mission to go zero waste and keep it green and clean!
