Green Apple Expands to Eight Cities in ’08
The Green Apple Festival will expand to eight cities over Earth Day weekend (April 18-20) this spring. The third-annual music festival, which is produced by Peter Shapiro and Jambands.com parent company Zenbu Media in partnership with Earth Day Network, has blossomed into Americas largest Earth Day celebration since growing out of the Jammy Awards in 2006. Approximately 500,000 people are expected to attend the all-inclusive, interactive and free public events in New York City (Central Park), Washington, DC (The National Mall), Chicago IL (Lincoln Park Zoo), Miami FL (Bicentennial Park), Denver CO (City Park), Dallas TX (Fair Park), San Francisco CA (Golden Gate Park) and Los Angeles CA (Santa Monica Pier).
Earth Day Network, the non-profit organization created by the original founders of Earth Day in 1970, and Green Apple Festival expect that the National Mall event in Washington, DC alone will be one of the largest Earth Day gatherings in U.S. history. As in years past, the festival will also green over 150 music venues throughout the eight Green Apple cities. This year, Green Apple will also kick off a Green Schools pilot program in three Green Apple cities. A list of participating artists and venues will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
