Rapture Festival has also partnered with ocean conservation non-profits The Big Blue and You, Ocean Generation, to provide fans not only with quality house and techno by connecting human souls with nature through music. Big Blue & You is a volunteer and youth-led organization which aims to inspire today’s young leaders to live an ocean loving lifestyle by educating people about ocean conservation through art and media. Festival goers can be inspired to make a change for the oceans and environment while enjoying interactions with the Mocha Mermaids or by visiting their booth. Further asserting their dedication to environmental awareness, the festival will also be partnering with Ocean Generation on #thelaststraw campaign by going “straw-free”, and all food and beverage containers will be made from 100% recyclable materials.
As a special offer, those who are interested to be volunteers to be part of the beach clean up crew are given a free ticket to event in exchange. Attendees are welcome to take this opportunity by emailing info@rapturefestivals.com.
