Radio 92.9 EarthFest
Saturday May 21, 2016
The 23nd Annual EarthFest, sponsored by Radio 92.9 and Whole Foods Market, will be held on Saturday May 21, 2016 at the Hatch Shell in Boston, as part of the Outside of the Box music festival. 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 11:00 am, and this year's event will feature performances by The Strumbellas, Joywave, and Fitz and the Tantrums, with a local band that won a Battle of the Bands contest. 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 2016 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 To Be Announced. Additional activities in The Kids Planet range from face painting to healthy treats, compliments of Whole Foods Market and a variety of other vendors.
Numerous booths onsite will offer educational displays, exhibits and food sampling. The booths will be staffed by event sponsors and local environmental and non-profit organizations.
Security Notes: The current protocol for similar events is checkpoint entry with almost no bags allowed. See-through plastic tote bags may be required. Footbridge access to the Esplanade maybe redirected at any time.
