No trash allowed at FMFA 2015 in Singapore
The long awaited Future Music Festival Asia (FMFA) that will be held in Singapore for the first time at the Changi Exhibition Centre is just around the corner, from this 13 to 14 March.
CEO of the organising company, Livescape Group’s Muhammad Iqbal had explained during an interview about his trash control strategy plan for the event in order to keep the venue litter-free.
Since this is the first time FMFA will be held in Singapore, he assured that at least 100 sets of colourful recycling bins will be prepared and placed across the venue and there will be at least 100 cleaners on standby to keep the place clean.
“These cleaners will be sweeping the venue in zones. They will stay on after the event for another round of sweeping and come back in the morning to sweep again,” said Iqbal.
However, he mentioned that there might still be some trash left after the event, but it will only be very little.

Why the sudden highlight on trash after festivals? Cause the Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Hsien Loong is extra strict during these events as he does not want show organisers to repeat the same situation as what had happened during the recent Laneway Festival.
The Prime Minister had posted a picture on Facebook showing the colossal amount of trash that was left behind by Laneway Festival goers at the venue, while stressing the importance of working together in order to maintain the cleanliness of Singapore.
While the organisers are busy planning their trash-free strategy plan, FMFA goers can start to get ready for the biggest music event to happen in this part of the region.
Some of the artistes featured on the festival’s line-up includes; Avicii, The Prodigy, Afrojack and a whopping 46 more acts across the two day festival.
