50 years of Green Circle
The first popping party for young farmers since corona!
Green Circle, the association of young farmers, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2021. To celebrate, they had big plans: organise the first big farmers’ party after corona. It became a mega party for 1,500 attendees, with ticket sales, preceded by a fun reception for prominent figures from the farming community.
Within the farming community, we quickly found the perfect location for this party: an empty meadow in Sint-Niklaas, about 270 acres in size.
The summer of 2021 was far from dry, so we arranged a huge party tent for the partygoers. We built the stage out of ibc containers, white water barrels with a steel cage around them. With some light effects on these water barrels, we created a magical backdrop for the performers. This allowed us to recreate the atmosphere of the popular KLJ parties, but just a bit grander.
DJs from the environment
Because that is what the Green Circle wanted: a real farmer’s party, with farmer’s party atmosphere, but bigger. So we also chose DJs from the environment. They know how to get the audience dancing like no other.
With party buses, the young farmers came from all over Flanders to the festival site in Sint-Niklaas. We had provided a kiss & ride zone where the bus drivers could safely drop off their partygoers. A little further on, we had set up a waiting car park for the empty buses. Circulation went smoothly and everyone could soon start partying.
