AGF’s Associates Manager, Agostina Obeid was on hand at the ceremony in Barcelona to collect the award.
Agostina spoke of AGF’s commitment and passion for people and the environment and thanked everyone who had contributed to AGF’s success over the years;
“All of us at AGF are so happy and grateful to receive the Primavera Award.
AGF started 15 years ago as a way to boost action at festivals to care for environment and people, and the purpose behind the party, and today we are a global team working throughout the music and event space. At the core of it all is the desire for the enrichment and enhancement of life. By living lives filled by fun, community and creativity, as we do at festivals, and by protecting and enhancing life in the natural world at the same time.
This award is gratefully received by the hundreds of AGF assessors and the team all around the world , the hundreds of festivals that have participated over the years, and the thousands of individuals who have taken strides over these decades to make a greener music sector. We thank you all.“
