About ROTHBURY: A sustainable festival celebrating music, art, and action

Hosting its inaugural event in 2008 over July 4th weekend, ROTHBURY emerged as a new American celebration and raised the bar for large scale sustainableevents. For this next generation of the rock and roll music festival, ROTHBURY stands as a huge party with a purpose.

It is ROTHBURY's goal to harness the unique energy of the live music community into a durable social movement toward an important cause: Climate Change andClean Energy Alternatives. In addition to a diverse and stellar musical lineup, ROTHBURY hosts a Think Tank and Epicenter Fair exploring this important cause.In its 2008 inaugural year, ROTHBURY was recognized by national media outlets including New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, USA Today, and manyothers as the leader in the evolving art of making large scale events sustainable. www.rothburyfestival.com
