 Friends of Nature Music Festival (FON FEST) announces the first round of musicians to participate in the Festival’s inaugural edition.  FON FEST is one of the first eco-friendly interactive music festivals in Miami whose purpose is to educate the public on sustainability, the wellbeing of the planet, and how to contribute to saving it. It will take place in the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park on November 9 and 10, 2013 from 11 a.m. – 1 a.m. Thousands of attendees will spend two days experiencing live music, cultural food, entertainment, and a wide variety of interactive activities as well as exhibitors.

The Festival will feature eco-friendly initiatives from the sponsoring products to the tickets sold. In addition to these initiatives, Festival attendees can expect to be occupied at every step with activities promoting an earth-friendly lifestyle. Eco-activities include stations which teach attendees how to pick fruits and vegetables, make homemade detergent or grow personal vegetable gardens. Other activities are camping, canoeing, movies, comedy shows, live art installations, guest speakers, and seed stomping to improve the park grounds post Festival. Attendees can browse the vendor site, featuring fresh fruit markets and exotic eco-vendors such as organic soap makers, alternative energy gadgets, and more. To satisfy mid-Festival cravings, all of Miami’s famed food trucks will be on Festival grounds serving some of the community’s favorite treats.

With the goal of raising environmental awareness and promoting companies that have green initiatives, the musicians will contribute to the Festival’s mission through their support of the Festival and by being friends of nature. Confirmed musical artists include:

Oscar Diaz, Co-Founder and Musician Booker of FON FEST, says of the preliminary lineup, “We are excited about our initial line-up and look forward to the second phase when we’ll announce our headliners.
