Freeq is a specie of a wandering gnomie, so called cosmos-politan. Though it resembles a regular gnomie, its nothing less but its’ modern mutation.
As all gnomies, oh yes, he loves his mother Earth. It knows how to use her gifts wisely, how to brew herbs, grow veggies, collect fruits, but always only as much as he needs. He knows how to make wonderful handcraft, natural decoration, how to build organic houses, but he never exploits his environment too much.
Beside of this, however, freeq found his way to adapt into a very new environment- humans’ neighborhood, and how to take an advantage of humans’ technical development. Burrowing his way through human waste yards introduced him to several colours of artificial light sources and let him discover limitless assortment of materials and elements which normally do not grow in the forest, therefore, let him create unusual recycled compositions. He also learned how to cleverly reuse tones of food wasted by humans and how to sell it to elves, who, as we all know, eat only eco & vegan.
Gnomies usually live in tribes, often cooperating with other animal species, they hand down all their knowledge to their offspring, raising them in the spirit of cooperation, progress and creativity.
Gnomies are hiperturboactive, their bodies work so, more they get tired, more energy they have, so they are capable of gnoming non stop even up to 72 hours. Thanks to that, they are naturally inspired creatures, so, once, when they got a bottle of fermentated yeast drink, accidentaly left by human in the forest, a big group of dazed gnomies landed up in a hawk’s nest at the very top of the highest pine tree, instead of their village under the very same pine tree’s roots.
Freeq is well know type of an addict, the black sheep among other kinds of gnomies. His most serious addiction is music. And this is not only about ethno or folk music or forest meditation sounds, but also about Balkan stamping on the glade, jungle broken beats, swampy dub, or even crazy, stormy electronic trance.
The other freeq’s addiction is to multiply positive energy. He multiplies it beneath any limits, at every occasion, for example joining butterflies’ tribal dance, taking part into squirrels jiggery-pokery and jugglery tricks, or even rumbling on the drum at the shady trolls’ campfire.
Freeq is a derivative specie, which means, that every single gnomie can potentially become a freeq. Scientists haven’t found the reason of this metamorphosis yet. It can spread through the air, through a curse, or even during recreational mushroom collecting at the forest…. So beware!
Its well known that all the gnomies love its Mother Earth and they really care about her. And our poor Mother is drowning in plastic waste and unsegregated trash. On top of that we exploit her to her limits, and almost half of the food production we throw away. Forests on the Earth are decreasing drastically and people are starving.
Let’s change it together! Let’s start from ourselves! Gnomie has the power!
Most of the decoration on our festival will be made with recycled or organic materials, we boycott printing flyers, because most of it will be thrown away anyway.
Festival wristband and accreditation will be hand made also with recycled materials. We are trying hard not to produce any new trash but to reuse what we already have. Besides, we recycle food and create good value vegan meals with it.
Because of this all, please, think before coming to our festival about talking reusable plates, cutlery, water bottle, waste bags or an ashtray with you.
During the festival you can get a waste bag or an ashtray in the information point. Pay a special attention to the trash segregation while throwing it away. Think twice how much plastic do you bring with you to the festival, to simply throw it away.
Maybe you could use reusable bags or cartoons? Mind the fact, what kind of trade do you leave after you, and remember that some gnomies will have to segregate your trash after you left it.
RECYCLE YOURSELF! Thank you!
