Bicycle Music Festival in Seattle

This came my way:

The mission of the Bicycle Music Festival is to promote sustainable culture in general and bicycle culture in particular, by physically engaging and immersing our community in the magic of bike culture, and cultivating and nurturing a network of local sustainable musicians, through our staging of free, community participatory, bicycle-based music events.

The Bicycle Music Festival is the largest 100% bicycle-powered music festival in the world. The free, all-day (and late into the night) event takes place annually in San Francisco, California.

August 22, 2009 the Ginger Ninja's are spearheading the Pleasant Revoluntionary Tour and the BMF West Coast Tour coming to Seattle.

The Bicycle Music Festival features: a 2000 watt pedal-powered PA system, as many as 15 bands, up to 7 festival stops, outrageous Critical Mass-style bicycle party caravans between festival stops, and zero use of cars or trucks. With its completely bike-haulable stage, the event is packed up and deployed numerous times: staged sequentially at different public parks and also on a moving “Live On Bike” stage which rolls down city streets.

Get Involved. Are you a musician/ band that wants to be on the tour? Do you want to volunteer? Do you want to help haul stuff? Now's your opportunity to participate in this fun grass-roots festival.

BMF is made possible by the support of some wonderful local individuals and businesses. We encourage support via cash or in-kind materials/ services to help support the Bicycle Music Festival.
