Forward-Thinking / Cutting Edge
Entertainment for 2013
Musicians and entertainers have always been at the cutting edge of the global and political spectrum. Hence the phrase, “Life imitates Art,” or is it, “Art imitates Life? Now, the fans way in as well.
For example, when it comes to renewable energy sources, The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, one of the leading music festivals in the USA, is continuing its commitment towards sustainability with the installation of an array of permanent solar panels at the festival site in Tennessee. The new solar photovoltaic system will generate approximately 61,000 kilowatt hours per year and support about 20% of the festival’s annual electricity needs.
Who paid for this? The solar project was fully funded by “opt-in” donations that are available to Bonnaroo fans during the ticket purchase process! In previous years, the proceeds from this opt-in donation has been used to fund the compost pad, the garden, and last year’s mobile tower of power.
“Running part of Bonnaroo on solar power has long been a goal, as it underscores the commitment of Bonnaroo organizers and our community to the environment,” said festival partner Rich Goodstone. “None of this could have been possible without the immense support of the generous and forward-thinking Bonnaroo community. Their contributions have brought this project to fruition.”
