This is a solar powered, zero-waste celebration dedicated to transforming the cities we live in. We, as humans, are the only barrier delaying the transition to a world based on infinite resources. Not only is this future possible, it is inevitable. Off the Grid will help speed up the shift, but we need your help.

We’ll connect one of the finest sound systems to a battery bank and some solar panels, assemble a talented crew of artists, musicians and minds to connect technology with creativity. 14 hours of dancing, eating and drinking, without sending a single piece of material to landfill. Sounds impossible right? Be realistic, demand the impossible.

Using all of the profit from Off the Grid, we plan to help power the entire city, one solar project at a time. The power that is generated from the solar projects will be sold back to the grid, and that money will then be invested back into more parties. Once the city is 100% renewable, we will give that infrastructure back to the people of Melbourne.
