Musicians unite for a Green Earth
With less than a month until the Green Earth Festival takes place on Saturday 13 March at Brisbane's City Botanic Gardens, many local Brisbane performers are lending a helping hand by providing their musical talents with the aim of educating the public to all things green.
"I am very excited about the talented and passionate musicians who have put their hands up to perform," says Green Earth Festival Organiser Leigh-Chantelle Koch. "We have Brisbane's very own Emma Dean along with local acts and other up and coming ethical artists who are all passionate about the goals of the festival."
The main stage at Green Earth Festival will feature bands including the Black Stars, Dead Riot, Malevolence, Kosmic Evolution, Quinn and The Maltese Falcon. Local teenage band wheeleR will also be performing along with electric duo Holy Voodoo, and electric soloists Sanat and Ballad Boy. There will also be acoustic performers including The Jah Band, Leigh-Chantelle featuring Doug de Jong, Eddie Blume and Alex Campbell. A selection of local Spoken Word performers from Words or Whatever will also take to the main stage.
The Green Earth Festival is being organised by the fledging, not-for-profit environmental awareness group, Green Earth Group Inc that began early last year when like-minded friends of singer/poet and author Leigh-Chantelle's saw the need for a uniting of the environmental and animal rights groups.
The Green Earth Festival is a free, family orientated, community event that aims to stimulate awareness by bringing environmental, green, health and lifestyle, cruelty-free, recycling and sustainable issues into the public eye. This wide-ranging festival is focused firmly on the family and includes everything you need for a great day out: live music and entertainment, stalls, food, speakers, kids' zone, video zone, as well as short film, art and fashion competitions.
"My goal is to encourage all people from all backgrounds to be involved in a positive way to help our environment and to meet other like-minded individuals," says Leigh-Chantelle. Combined with friends who have the passion are others who have the know-how: people who have been involved with large events such as the Big Day Out, Sea Shepherd fundraisers and publicity for Jimmy Barnes. This combination, according to Green Earth Festival organiser and promoter Leigh-Chantelle, is what makes the magic happen!
