Sunstock Solar Festival Powers Up With Alternative Lineup On Solar Energy
May 23, 2016 at 4:00 AM (PT)
SUNSTOCK SOLAR FESTIVAL is the first completely solar-powered event of its kind and is lighting the way for music and the environment this SUMMER. The festival will take place on SATURDAY, JUNE 18th at THE AUTRY IN GRIFFITH PARK in LOS ANGELES featuring CULTS, WAVVES, ALLAH-LAS, KAKI KING, THE BIG PINK, TRAPDOOR SOCIAL, YOYA and GATEWAY DRUGS. SUNSTOCK SOLAR FESTIVAL will benefit KIDS CANCER CONNECTION, a local charity, and help create awareness for alternative energy sources and eco-friendly practices in the music industry.
“Music has a way of uplifting, re-energizing and inspiring people. If we can create a positive experience that is also pointed towards a cause and a purpose, we can be more effective and we can be re-energized,” said SUNSTOCK Founder SKYLAR FUNK. “We come together not just to party and listen to music, but because we know that there has to be a change and we want to be part of the solution. People can come get involved with these non-profits, or even if they just buy a ticket, they are supporting a good cause.”
SUNSTOCK SOLAR FESTIVAL will run all evening, entirely on solar energy. FUNK and his band TRAPDOOR SOCIAL started doing solar-powered concerts in 2015 and are creating SUNSTOCK SOLAR FESTIVAL in order to celebrate solar as a solution, create a positive space for the sustainability movement to come together, and curate great art and music for the LOS ANGELES community. The festival, which is produced in collaboration with ODD NIGHTS at THE AUTRY, is open to all ages and will include visual artists, activities for kids, food trucks, a 21+ bar and vendors from the area’s craft culture. All proceeds from the event will help fund a solar roof installed by SUNSTOCK partner, GRID ALTERNATIVES, for KIDS CANCER CONNECTION.
Doors open at 4p and music goes live at 5p. Tickets are now available through EVENTBRITE for $20. Visit sunstocksolarfestival.com for more info.
