The summer music festival season got a lot greener last week with the announcement of GreenNote, a two-day acoustic music festival set to take place at Myrtle Edwards Park in July. The festival aims to promote environmental awareness with a city-dwelling music festival crowd. GreenNote will be doing this by incorporating the message of green energy and sustainability throughout the festival grounds. There will be food booths that feature sustainable meats and locally sourced entrees, bike valets to encourage non-vehicle transportation to the festival, gardening workshops, and other green-friendly events. The decision to feature exclusively acoustic music was made intentionally in order to cut down on electricity usage; the electricity that is used will be powered by biodiesel generators. GreenNote will take place from 11 am to 9 pm July 24-25. Admission is free until 6 p.m. each day. After 6 p.m. a ticketed fundraising concert for environmental nonprofits, featuring headlining national talent, will take place at the main stage area.
