For people that think that throwing on an event is easy, you are so wrong.
I know people who have a hard time planning their own birthday party, imagine throwing a birthday party for 10,000 people. Then think about food, parking, sponsors, the artists and most importantly budget. Just think about that and plus more for 10,000-50,000 of your closest friends. Do you think you could pull it off?
I’m not saying my job is rocket science, but it’s definitely not a cake walk either. I hope people appreciate the amount of work, sweat and tears it takes to put on a good show. And if it’s a damn good show, you the know the price is right.
This will be my second year working Rock the Green. To say the least I’m really excited about it. I’m excited to see everyone I worked with again, I’m excited about working another festival but more importantly, I’m excited to be home.
If you are in Milwaukee, come on by and say hi!
I’m so bad keeping up with this blog . I’m sorry about the delay, I can’t keep up due to the fact my job keeps me running around anywhere from 30-50 hours a week… happy labor day to me…
So the new gig I have coming up is Rock the Green.
Rock the Green is an environmentally friendly concert/festival held at Veteran’s Park in Milwaukee, WI. This will be the second Rock the Green, so it is pretty new to the music scene! What makes it so cool and interesting, they turn anything and everything to have less of an impact on the environment. Take for example, Goodwill; Goodwill is one of the sponsors for Rock the Green. They contribute by donating gently used t-shirts and making them into ” Rock the Green” concert t-shirts. So if you have donated an old t-shirt to Goodwill recently, you’ll probably find it at Rock the Green. Another cool thing Rock the Green is doing, this year, it is completely paperless tickets. I don’t have all the details on that, but this is the first concert series I’ve worked/been too that is trying to do it all paperless. Rock the Green is not only eco-friendly, but also locally friendly. Whole foods and other Milwaukee native restaurants will be there to sell local food and beverages.So who’s pumped for great music and saving mother nature! This girl! 🙂
As a concert goer, I went to it last year. It rained and it was 40 degrees outside. But I still had fun, because well I love music. But if you know me, I’m all for a good cause, and I believe that Rock the Green is for the good cause.
This year the following bands will be performing on the main stage:
I’m super excited because I haven’t seen many of these bands live, so it should be an awesome concert. There will also be a side stage for the following bands performing:
As you can see, it’s a pretty good lineup, so I think you should go. If you are interested in going but what to help out,contact me to volunteer at Rock the Green!If you have any other questions, go to www.rockthegreen.com
