This fee has been put in place to encourage lift sharing, which will alleviate pressure on local roads, reduce Cosmic Roots’ environmental impact and support an incredible charity in Malawi.

If you have spare spaces in your car, or you don’t need to use your car, then please consider lift-sharing. It must be part of the future of festival travel and private transport in general.
