Sunstock Solar Festival — which debuted last year as an environmentally as well as aurally friendly day of music — return this year on Sept. 9 at a new location, the events space The Magic Box @ The Reef in downtown L.A.
Sunstock is the brainchild of L.A. indie band and clean energy campaigners Trapdoor Social, who typically perform concerts powered by their own solar trailer. Besides the music — the lineup will be announced at the end of the month — the second Sunstock will “focus on clean energy, sustainability and social justice in a positive, engaging way, featuring solar-powered light installations, green food trucks, immersive art, workshops, games, sustainable vendors [and] social action opportunities.” It will be 100% solar-powered.
The all-ages festival will add a second stage focusing on L.A. acts (to be chosen by submission). The event in part will benefit GRID Alternatives. (Band submissions should be emailed to whatsup(at)sunstocksolarfestival.com).
The festival will run from 2 to 11 p.m. Presale tickets will be $25 ($20 for students/seniors/military and $12 for attendees younger than 16.) The Magic Box is located at 1933 S. Broadway.
