Radio 929 EarthFest
Saturday May 17, 2014
The 20h Annual EarthFest, sponsored by Radio 92.9 and Whole Foods Market, will be held on Saturday May 17, 2014 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 Neon Trees, The Wailers, Morning Parade, Smallpools, and 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 2014 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 Zumix, Steve Elci and Friends, Vanessa Trien and the Jumping Monkeys, and Little Groove. 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 bags may be required. The Fiedler footbridge will most likely be closed with entry via the footbridge at Dartmouth or Cambridge Streets.
