Clean Concert Pledge - What will you do this festival season?

I took the Clean Concert pledge.

One of my favorite times of year is quickly approaching: Festival Season. Good music, great friends, beautiful weather... all coming together for weekends throughout the summer of beautiful outdoor experience.

What's good for me to remember is that this time spent outdoors is not that different from any trek, climb or paddle I will do this summer, and these festival areas have the potential to see staggering amounts of damage from such high usage.

One way that we can help to bring additional awareness to festival season and our cumulative impact in these areas is to visit This is a new website where individuals can educate themselves on the ways in which they can minimize their impact while attending festivals, and join hundreds of others in pledging to be a low-impact festivarian this summer.

Check it out, and happy festival going!
