Music festivals create more than merriment and boozy afterglows; they also generate a prodigious amount of trash. Lisa Våglund, a recent graduate of the Danish Design School, pitched a solution, transforming discarded tents from the Roskilde Festival—one of the six biggest annual music festivals in Europe—into stage costumes for singer and festival staple Kissey Asplund.

ADAPTIVE REUSE

The amount of trash left behind after the festival both shocked and troubled Våglund, inspiring her upcycled creations. “[The garbage] has become a bigger and bigger problem for the festival because they spend a lot of money on cleaning up the area,” she tells Ecouterre. “It usually takes them three months every year!”

Våglund’s goal was two-fold: To make a statement about the festival’s litter problem while creating new looks for Asplund to perform in. “In the end, it’s the visitors that pay for it,” Våglund says of the massive—and expensive—cleanup operation. “But the money could be spent on better things like booking more artists.”
