The 11th Annual Boston GreenFest is booking up to 6 Sonicbids artists!  This is a great opportunity for exposure at a free festival in the heart of downtown Boston for a good cause. 

Boston GreenFest is the largest multicultural environmental music festival in the region. 100,000 people are expected to attend the free, 3-day festival that features a range of live bands.The festival is looking for all styles/genres to play during the day and support the headliners. This year's focus on the Main Stage will fill fast, so artists should apply early!

Our theme this year is #ChangingCourse. With climate change, the world is changing course in ways that we are not prepared for and it is up to us to change course in our habits in order to combat climate change and become better stewards of our planet.

The Opportunity

We are actively building an interconnected, ever-expanding network throughout our neighborhoods, city, and region.
