The NYC Celebrates Water Festival 2011 will be New York’s largest bike-powered music festival. The festival will attract music enthusiasts, environmental advocates, and local NYC residents as well as parents and children.
The festival celebrates NYC’s precious drinking water, which is still safe, clean and right out of the tap for New York City’s 8 million residents to enjoy. Conceived and produced by Pedal Power NYC and founder Ariel Agai, the festival grid will be completely charged by cyclists from the audience. Volunteer riders will crank it out on a fleet of 16 newly fabricated bike generators…meaning, the show is 100% powered by Natural Ass, no batteries included.
Festival Main Stage
NYC Celebrates Water Festival 2011 will feature performances by Vanessa Bley, Masa (Didi Gutman of Brazilian Girls and master producer Hector Castillo) and Gordon Voidwell.
Festival Side Stage for Kids
