The Echo Project, Oct. 12-14 2007, Atlanta, GA

So it seems as though Atlanta is finally getting another multiple day/ungodly-amount-of-bands music festival. It's more jam-band oriented than I usually care for, but The Flaming Lips, The Polyphonic Spree, The Roots & Man Man are playing so who cares! It takes place Oct. 12-14 at the Bouckaert Farm in Fairburn, GA which is just slightly south of Atlanta along the Chattahoochee River. More importantly, The Echo Project is about helping and educating people on how to take care of the environment. They'll start with Chattahoochee, and about three weeks before the festival a group of volunteers will start to clean the river in the area of the venue. They will also be using alternative fuel sources to help power The Echo Project, in order to create a sustainable music experience. They are primarily focused on energy usage, waste management and habitat restoration. You can volunteer for river clean-up, festival work exchange or the street team here, some of the incentives include ticket upgrades/discounts, free merch and access to exclusive camp sites.
