An ambitious and innovative event, done on a grand scale, the environmentally conscious festival is billed as more than just a music festival, with hundreds of musicians, artists, filmmakers, inventors, comedians, and philosophers from all over the world pitching in to provide entertainment and to raise awareness about saving the planet.
Besides the concert music by exciting bands in four “stage” areas there will be costumes, sculptures and art exhibits, food (including ice cream, ice cold lemonade, pop-corn and fruit) workshops, yoga, dancers, comedy, drum circles, movies on the beach, and non-profit organizations participating.
FonFest is presented by Eyeness Productions, co-founded by Miami locals Ines Galindo and Oscar Diaz. One of the first production companies in Miami creating events that implement eco-friendly initiatives and use alternative energy, making them more responsible to the environment, the festival founders hope that all attendees “will leave with the tools and knowledge of how to save the planet.”
Unlike many music festivals, it will source all power from natural sources such as solar, bio-fuel and natural gas generators as well as ensure all products sold remain true to the festival’s eco-friendly mandate.
