This year, Autonomie Project has been approved as a vendor for the 2008 Lollapalooza concert event August 1st-3rd in Chicago’s Grant Park. Our booth will be located on the “Green Street” section of the festival, which is going to be filled with like-minded, eco-friendly companies!
We are really honored and psyched to be a part of this year’s festival, especially since they are making a huge effort to lessen their environmental impact through an initiative called Green Lolla. The Green portion of their website explains, “Lollapalooza is committed to lightening our load on the earth, and using our giant ‘microphone’ to communicate the green message.” They have promised to do this by focusing on making the entire production of the event eco-friendly, as well as spreading the ‘go green’ message to fans and engaging the artists who play! Read more about Green Lolla and all of the great eco initiatives at Eco-Palooza.
Along with the Green movement, there will be other fun activities including a Rock the Vote voter registration area and a battle of the bands dubbed Last Band Standing. And, like every year, there are a ton of great artists including: Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, Mason Jennings, Mates of State, Kanye West, Bloc Party, Broken Social Scene, and Explosions in the Sky, just to name a few. For a full list of the lineup, check the Lollapalooza website frequently as its updated constantly with new artists.
So if you are coming to this year’s festivities, please make sure to stop by the Green Street and check out our booth and make sure to buy your carbon offsets for the trip. Hope to see you there and more updates to come!
