On their efforts to become an environmentally-friendly festival, a press release states: "Wide Awake has already committed to bury zero waste in the landfill sites and leave no trace of litter. They have banned single-use plastic, will only allow compostable packaging and cutlery onsite, all traders and back of house waste will be recycled and the stage effects will be biodegradable. This is just the beginning of the process and over the next three years, Wide Awake will be making more and more changes."

The festival is run by Field Day's co-founders, Bad Vibrations, Dimensions, LNZRT, SC&P and the creators behind some of London’s most iconic, small music venues: MOTH Club, The Shacklewell Arms, The Waiting Room and Peckham Audio.
