Sustrans Sounds helping to Change Your World


June 17, 2009

One of the many great venues in the markets is Sustrans Sounds, based in the walkway between the Pyramid and Other Stage, near the Orange Chill n Charge tent.  Roadhouse Productions have pulled together an eclectic and explosive collection of DJs from across the country with the emphasis very firmly on fun and partying.

Sustrans is the charity behind the award-winning National Cycle Network and other great initiatives helping people to walk, cycle or take public transport more.  The Festival has had may links with the charity over the years with Michael Eavis, a keen cyclist, being the first to cycle part of the National Cycle Network near Glastonbury as part of the opening ceremony.

Change Your World is their campaign to inspire and motivate everyone to think differently about the way we travel. They are asking Festivalgoers to join with thousands of others and swap just one car trip between 29 June and 4 July 2009.  Walk, cycle, use public transport or car-share instead. Amazingly, if we all take this one easy action, together we’ll reduce car traffic by 10% – healthier journeys, cleaner air and quieter streets. Sounds like good car-ma.
