Green Rider


This Green Riders guide, updated in 2018, provides ideas for ‘green’ clauses for inclusion either in a standalone Green Rider or as part of your tech or hospitality riders.

We all know the stories of M&M’s sorted by colour and other sometimes outlandish- sounding requests included in hospitality and technical riders – so if the environmental impact of your touring is something you are concerned about, including some green clauses in your rider can be a powerful communications tool and encourage change towards a more sustainable touring sector across the venues and events you play at.

We’re always looking for more requests for inclusion, examples of ‘green riders’ in action, and feedback on your experiences using green riders so that we can continue to improve and refine our work – email us your ideas, and feel free to get in touch for more information, examples of some real green riders, or with any other questions.
