Third Eye Blind, Switchfoot, Eve 6 and Spin Doctors to Perform at 92.9’s EarthFest on May 19 in Boston
Radio 92.9’s annual EarthFest will return to DCR’s Hatch Memorial Shell in Boston on May 19, 2012 with a killer (and totally free!) line-up that includes Third Eye Blind, The Spin Doctors, Switchfoot, and Eve 6.
For 19 years, the Radio 92.9 EarthFest has drawn crowds to the DCR Hatch Memorial Shell along the Charles River in Boston for this annual celebration for the Earth. Presented by Whole Foods Market, the family-friendly festival is the largest free radio station concert in the country, showcasing national and local music acts, environmentally friendly products and local non-profit environmental organizations.
The music on the main stage will begin at 11:30 a.m. with a local band chosen through a contest hosted by Radio 92.9. Sixteen bands will be selected for the bracket and the final four will perform at an event in May. One band will be picked to play in front of thousands of people at Radio 92.9’s EarthFest. For more details or to enter a band in the contest, visit www.myradio92.9.com. Performances on the Kid’s Planet stage begin at 10:30am.
The Radio 92.9 EarthFest will also include music and activities in Kids’ Planet – an interactive area designed specifically with families in mind. The Kids’ Planet stage will feature performances from Mister G, Sarah Wheeler & Little Groove, RhymeZweLL Vanessa Trien & the Jumping Monkeys and student performers from Zumix. The Kid’s Planet area will also feature environmental activities, educational displays and other activities planned for children under the age of 12.
“The diversity of the acts performing at this year’s event represent the type of music played by Boston’s rock station, Radio 92.9,” said Ken West, program director at Radio 92.9. “Over the past 19 years, the Radio 92.9 EarthFest has established itself as a must-attend event. We are fortunate to be able to work with the Department of Conservation and Recreation to host this celebration of the Earth in such a beautiful location.”
