DJ Coachella With A Little Help From Your Friends

Energy FACTory DJ Mixer Returns To Indio

Here’s your chance to spin in front of thousands of people at the Coachella Music & Art Festival.

First there’s a catch! With great opportunity, comes great sacrifice. You cannot perform on your own.
You’ll need at least 18 friends, family members or fellow festival goers to power all your equipment. Your team will be in the Energy Playground (next to the stage) riding hamster wheels, tour de energy bikes, energy swings, energy see-saw, turning hand cranks plus more!

All the energy created will be stored in our lithium-ion battery Energy Wells that will power your DJ equipment.

Lastly, you must be able to rule the decks. Send us your website or sample tracks (any email received over 2mb will be blacklisted) so we can listen to your set.
Set times during Coachella are 40 mins. If your friends are in great condition and you’re owning the audience….this time period can be extended.

Green Street at Lollapalooza

April 11, 2010 by editor · 1 Comment 

There tends to be a lot of green vibes floating around during this three day music and arts festival, and at Lolla there was an entire street dedicated to it. Lollapalooza has been one of the few progressive festivals to add eco-friendly causes to the festival experience. To start off, fresh fruit samples were offered to all passerby’s at one of the local farmer’s market stations. Concert goers recharged and supported their local markets with each ad every purchase. The market included apples, cheeses, smoothies, yogurt, and an assortment of vegetables. But beyond this small import of local farm food, there was a large team of volunteers who picked up the sea of cans scattered throughout Grant Park. Lollapalooza features a rock&recycle program which dispenses trash bags to those who individuals who wish to clean up their mess and who later will be rewarded for their actions; when they return with a bag full of trash they are then eligible to win a bicycle and then walk away with a free Lolla shirt. What made the biggest environmental impact this year at Lollapalooza were the H20 water bottles. Individuals could refill these water bottles, available at $2 a piece, and fill them up at one of the water stations, cutting down the amount of water bottles used down by thousands. This year was another remarkable leap towards giving back to Grant Park and to giving the environment the kind of authority it needs in our every day partying lives.

Gore at climate talks: Polar ice may go in five years

December 14, 2009 by Robin · Leave a Comment 

New computer modeling suggests the Arctic Ocean may be nearly ice-free in the summertime as early as 2014, Al Gore said Monday at the UN climate conference.
AP/Michael von Bülow (article updated)
Northern polar sea ice has been retreating dramatically. These new projections suggest an almost-vanished summer ice cap much earlier than foreseen by a US government agency just eight months ago.”It is hard to capture the astonishment that the experts in the science of ice felt when they saw this,” former US Vice President Gore told reporters and other conference participants at a joint briefing with Scandinavian officials and scientists, his first appearance at the two-week session.

The group presented two new reports updating fast-moving developments in Antarctica, the autonomous Danish territory of Greenland, and the rest of the Arctic.

“The time for collective and immediate action on climate change is now,” said Denmark’s foreign minister, Per Stig Møller.
