Through collaboration between Indy Parks, Indiana Living Green, and MOKB Presents, the inaugural Recycle Fest will take place at Mac Allister Ampitheatre inside Garfield Park on Saturday, June 1 from NOON to 10pm. The one-day music, arts, and awareness festival serves as a flagship event to the Indy Parks Summer Concert series and will be held inside one of the city’s oldest amphitheaters.
Recycle Fest combines environmentally responsible initiatives through an all day festival featuring live music, demonstrations, activities and education. On-site activities include recycling based demonstrations from Recycle Force, Republic Recycling, and Indiana Living Green Magazine. Pattern Magazine will host a “recycled fashion” area to collect donated clothing during the event, and event attendees will be able to create their own art from recycled materials at State Farm’s recycled art booth. The Indianapolis Food Truck Alliance will provide a variety of mobile gourmet food options from Cutie Pies Pizza, Spice Box, Retro 101, and more while Sun King brewery provides fresh local beer for adult attendees.
International indie-electro emerging artist Darwin Deez headlines the festival, followed by a diverse lineup of Indy and Bloomington bands including The Main Squeeze, KO, The New Old Cavalry, Rodeo Ruby Love, and more. The local and emerging talent will perform 40-minute sets comprised of half original material and half “recycled” cover songs.
Tickets are $15.00. Kids ages 6-12 are $5.00, and those under 5 get in free.
