BIG changes announced for 2013 as we grow the festival.
The Earth Day Music Fest & Expo is set to make a major impact this year and its largest event to date with a two day event at two of the best music venues on the Grand Strand.
Saturday, April 20, we will be at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach on the Sugar Shack Deck. The event will kick off at 4 PM and you can expect the same great family atmosphere of the previous five years from 4:00-9:00 PM. But the live music and fun will continue till midnight.
Then Sunday, April 21, we will take the fun over to the Boathouse for Sunday Funday. The Earth Day Music Fest will start with live music at 1 PM and all of the great vendors, artist and activities you have come to love. We will have bands playing throughout the day until 6:30 PM when the Boathouse will have headliner Rehab finish off the afternoon.
2008 was the first ever Earth Day Music Fest. We had 21 vendors, non-profit organizations and over 1200 people pass through to enjoy the art, music and environmental education.
2009 was the second annual Earth Day Music Fest, and saw huge growth as we had 45 vendors and over 5000 people enjoying the festivities.
2010 was the largest year to date with over 6000 people passing through and 57 vendors and non-profits and an amazing music lineup.
Though 2011 was hampered by Tornados and bad weather, it was still a great event and very intimate in an indoor setting. It was our first year adding an International Recording Artist, Emerson Hart of Tonic fame.
