The 20h Annual EarthFest, sponsored by Radio 92.9 and Whole Foods Market, will be held on Saturday May 18, 2013 at the Hatch Shell in Boston. The Radio 92.9 EarthFest is usually the largest free radio station concert in Boston. The event is produced in conjunction with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation. Past events have drawn in excess of 100,000 people.
Music on the main stage usually starts at 11:30 am, and the event will feature performances by Camper Van Beethoven, Gentlemen Hall, Fastball, Cracker, and Vertical Horizon. The festival will also feature exhibits and environmental displays, staffed by sponsors and non-profit environmental organizations from New England. Each exhibitor is committed to raising awareness and offering educational information about different environmental issues facing the planet.
In addition to the musical performances on the main stage, the 2013 Radio 92.9 EarthFest will also feature once again The Kids Planet—an expanded interactive family area. The Kids Planet will feature a wide variety of musical acts and entertainment as well as environmental activities and educational displays. Musical performers will include RymeZwell, Vanessa Trien, Sarah Wheeler, and performers from ZUMiX.
