Zagreb, August 21, 2020 – As of yesterday, Zagreb has a new festival gathering place, completely equipped with items made of recycled materials. The Green River Festival, with its harmony with nature, represents a new form of entertainment where the preservation of the environment is also considered.

The Green River Festival started yesterday in Zagreb on the left bank of the Sava near the Hendrix Bridge and will last until September 20. According to Musicbox, the organizer of the festival, the association called “Priroda za sve”, announces a rich program of the festival, which will include numerous workshops, musical performances, and will offer visitors an excellent gastronomic offer.

The organizers wanted to bring life back to the Sava River, which used to be famous for its beaches. The entire location is built from recycled material which makes this festival unique. The stage is equipped with solar systems for obtaining electricity, and in the next month, many famous and interesting faces from the music scene will take part in it, such as Ida Prester and the group Stampedo.



At the Green River Festival, visitors can enjoy sun loungers, refresh with a solar shower, and have a drink from #reusedontabuse glasses with biodegradable straws. All items were made by young enthusiasts and innovators, as well as members of “Priroda za sve” association. Visitors can even charge their phones on solar chargers to never run out of the battery on their phone while enjoying.

As part of the festival, there will be organized women gatherings called “Babinjak”, where the brave, courageous, and inspiring women will exchange experiences, ideas, and new knowledge. Babinjak was allegedly the first nudist beach in Europe, and it was also the most popular place for women who sunbathed there in the summer, hidden from the male’s eyes.

There is also something for children. A rich creative and fun program awaits the youngest visitors through workshops, drawing, playing, and storytelling.

At the festival workshops, it will also be possible to make your face masks from old textiles, as well as summer postcards from old paper. During the last days of the festival, an exhibition of the Museum of Discarded Objects will be set up as part of an interdisciplinary project.
