Festival Description

The annual outdoor music festival began with humble beginnings in 2002. Since that time the festival has continually outgrown each venue to currently land at the 85-acre space of Waterfront Park in Louisville. The festival is an experience of Music, Arts, and Activism®. A diverse range of music genres, activism — primarily focused on environmental and social interests includes hundreds of companies committed to achieving a healthy planet. A symposium for musicians to meet with industry insiders, promoters, label executives. These events include panel discussion on career-related topics — songwriting, recording, publishing, marketing, branding, and touring and much more… Visual artists are given the opportunity to exhibit and take part in workshops, and panel discussions. The environmental portion of the programming offers education, networking, outdoor and green technology industries, films, and speaker sessions and much, much more… The festival is organized by AC Entertainment.
