Climate challenge advice given a stage at HebCelt

One of the Highland and Island’s premier music festivals is stepping up its pioneering environmental “drive” this year.

The arrival of a Tesla electric car on site will help highlight a campaign to provide climate change and energy saving advice to thousands of people attending the Hebridean Celtic Festival – as well as transporting its musicians to the main stage.

HebCelt, which is being held  from July 17-20 in Lewis and Harris, is renowned for its green credentials relating to the sustainable use of resources, reducing emissions and waste and raising awareness of environmental matters.

The car, owned by local housing and energy agency Tighean Innse Gall (TIG), will be used to shuttle artists from hotels, the airport and ferry terminal to the festival site.

Stewart Wilson, chief executive of TIG, said: “HebCelt is an ideal place to highlight climate change, because we can reach so many people in one place at one time and our message of energy saving and green travel fits perfectly with the green conscience of the festival.”

HebCelt 2019 will feature 30 international acts including headliners KT Tunstall, The Shires and Tide Lines with other events lined up in venues across Lewis and Harris.
