Rothbury Festival: music, the climate and energy alternatives

Rothbury Festival

Yet another big music festival? Yet another big music festival. Will Mike Gordon join Primus, Phil Lesh and Dave Schools for a big bass blow-out? Will people throw things at Dave Matthews? Will Dweezil Zappa kick Michael Kang when he tries to sit in with ZPZ? And will Warren Haynes unleash his guitar tone with at least ten different bands?

Question, questions. Some answers at the Rothbury Festival, which serves a good cause as well:

It is ROTHBURY’s goal to harness the unique energy of the live music community into a durable social movement toward an important cause: Climate Change and Clean Energy Alternatives. In addition to a diverse and stellar lineup of over 70 bands on 8 stages, ROTHBURY will host a Think Tank and Energy Fair, and features unprecedented audience participation opportunities.
