Japan’s Hokkaido mountains will come to life for Club Med’s first ever eco-festival, Green Beats, a family-friendly, three day celebration of music, art, culture and nature.

The festival will be open to all guests at Club Med Tomamu Hokkaido in the heart of Hokkaido’s mountain landscapes from 14 to 16 September 2019.

Guests can expect to hear performances from Asia’s underground music scene, get involved in hands-on workshops run by local eco-organisations and try their hand at food and beverage masterclasses featuring local produce.

Activities on offer include capturing Hokkaido through a lense or with a paint brush during art and photography workshops by National Geographic’s Nature 2017 photographer of the year or designing Festival Bingata Tote Bags using Traditional Japanese Bingata Art.

Festival-goers will be invited to explore Mount Tomamu on a guided nature hike, soar through the skies on the only flying trapeze in Tomamu, or ride across the landscape on a mountain biking adventure.

The festival aims to leave guests feeling inspired, educated, and motivated to preserve the world’s natural beauty.

Chief Executive Officer of Club Med, APAC Xavier Desaulles said Club Med strives to turn holidays into “transformative experiences”.

“Eco-consciousness is a part of that journey, and this year we are excited to announce Green Beats, along with a series of activities across the region that will aim to drive awareness and inspire guests to take positive action in their daily lifestyle that can continue beyond their stay in Club Med,” he said.
