The first edition of the Summervibes Festival took place at Wageningen Campus on Thursday, June 22, near one of WUR’s buildings Atlas. A stage, carousel, bar, food trucks and, above all, good music created a real festival atmosphere on Wageningen Campus. Despite the rainy weather, the atmosphere was good and lively. Students and staff celebrated the beginning of summer, to the music of Abba, Kenny B and Jazzalike.

Initiators Sjef Moling and Chris van Kreij both look back on a successful edition. We organised this festival in close collaboration with various partners located on Wageningen Campus. A new joint tradition has been born. Chris estimates that around 1,000 people visited the festival during the day. "Despite the rain, people enjoyed the music and the atmosphere, and they had a great time. We received many positive comments. We will now continue to evaluate and do our utmost best to make the Summervibes Festival return in 2024.
It is worth noting that ten cents from every coin sold at the festival went to the Adopt Rainforest charity. The final total is around 800 euros, enough to protect 320m2 of rainforest.
