Carbon-neutral Festival Fremont LoveFest To Be Held September 11, 2010

Fremont LoveFest, an equal parts music festival, community building, and an example of how to throw sustainable, carbon-neutral events, will be held all day on Saturday, September 11th along the Fremont canal, utilizing 55,000 square feet of open area.

The Fremont LoveFest encompasses an eclectic range of music showcasing many genres. You can expect to hear sounds of world music, acoustic trance, psychedelic rock, reggae, soul, and even conscious hip-hop.

Headlining the festival is Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe. Karl’s saxophone skills have been heard most prominently behind Lenny Kravitz albums Let Love Rule, Mama Said and Are You Gonna Go My Way? He’s also known as the co-creator, saxophonist, flutist, and singer for The Greyboy Allstars, and for working with dozens of jazz and funk greats.

The updated lineup also includes diverse acts such as Flowmotion, Air 2 A Bird (Gabriel Teodros & Amos Miller), and Luc & the Lovingtons alongside the funky brass of Tubaluba and the didgeridoo-tinted ambiance of Christopher of the Wolves.

Music from around the world is heavily featured, from Toussaint, Eduardo Mendonca-Show Brazil, and Raquy and the Cavemen, to local favorites Clinton Fearon and the Boogey Brown Band.

This unique festival boasts not only a diverse lineup, but a message of unity and environmentalism. LoveFest brings music together with organizations such as General BioDiesel, ROAR of Washington, TerraPass and the Clean Water Foundation in a statement of unity, environmental stewardship and social responsibility.

The event organizers, Manifest World, are taking steps to ensure their event is carbon neutral. Some of these steps: a bike valet, free water after the purchase of a $1 compostable cup, the beer garden features all sustainable organic beer from the Fremont Brewing Company, and all food related waste will be compostable. Not only is Manifest World working with TerraPass to balance out their overall carbon footprint, they are ensuring that everyone who attends the event will be balanced out as well.

The overall mission of the Fremont LoveFest is to foster an environment where music and art actively engage people to move towards a healthier state of conscious living. While the music will be amazing, this isn’t just about throwing a great party – it’s also encouraging community, creative and positive expression, and highlighting the sustainability of natural resources.
