The event is, in fact, more than sponsored by sweetgreen. The company's founders came up with the idea for the festival, which is carbon nuetral and aims to not just have good music but healthy food. I get a little nervous when words like "sustainable" and "green" get tossed around related to music festivals. None of them truly are. Too much trash, too much energy expended. BUT should we not have music festivals. At least this festival makes an effort to lessen the impact of the event (compostable utensils and cups, composting stations, solar panels, collection of recyclables in exchange for art, sunglasses and other items).
Last year's event had a lot of the major acts that make the festival rounds. It is to be expected this year will be no different.
