21st to 24th of July: concerts and environmental awareness-raising with the support of Earth Day and the partnership of Recycling Point.
Keep on rockin’ for a Green World: paraphrasing Neil Young, this is the goal of Verona Sound Fest, a unique event with the participation of Recycling Point. The force of music and the revolutionary message of the circular economy will meet for a four-day concert festival. Save the date: the event will take place from the 21st to the 24th of July near the main station of Verona in Via Città di Nimes.
The unique event with a green heart is powered by the cooperation of people, associations and local enterprises that work every day for the recycling, recovery and reusing of energy and materials. The backbone of the event is the Studio Mastini, with the collaboration of the associations Verona Arte e Musica and Amicizia e Musica, and with the sponsoring of the Free Time Department of the Municipality of Verona. The main partner is AGSM, further partners are Amia and Recycling Point, and last but not least the event counts on the support of Earth Day Italia.
Every night starting from 19:00 there will be live performances of emerging bands from Verona together with more popular bands of national fame, as well as information booths on eco-sustainability and of course all possible street food stalls. The event will also offer a free Wi-Fi service provided by FreeLuna social Wi-Fi.
The festival kicks off on Thursday, July 21st with the Davide Lipari Trio together with One Man 100% Bluez directly from Rome. They will be introduced by the Black Mama from Verona, and at 20:30 everybody is invited for a VespaAperitivo with Vespa Club 37100. On Friday get ready to dance until 2 am on the notes of Le Holograms followed by the DJ set of The Sunshine DJ. At 19:00 enjoy the aperitivo with UniVR by night. The whole night of Saturday will be dedicated to local musicians until 2 am, with the participation of the Fry Days followed by the 3Tons. To close the event with a blast, Sunday will be animated by the Endless Harmony and the Magical Mystery Band.
The cooperation with Earth Day Italia originates from the wish to spread the attention for the environment our Earth badly needs. This is why Recycling Point entrusted Ecowood and Avanguardia with the setting up of the event: the two companies reuse waste material to create new furniture and interior design items, and work with youths coming from difficult situations to give them a chance to transform their lives.
