Ticket Update from The Echo Project!

The Echo Project three-day eco-responsible music festival announced that it is selling Saturday/Sunday and Sunday only tickets beginning Tuesday, September 25 at 12 p.m. EST at and 1-800-594-TIXX. Saturday/Sunday tickets are $135 and Sunday only tickets are $85. Three-day passes are currently available for $155.50 and will soon go up to $178.50.

15 cents of every ticket sold will be donated to Trees For The Future, an organization that has been the steward of planting trees throughout the world since the early 70s in an effort to remedy the effects of illegal logging and unsustainable land management systems on the world's developing communities.

Patrons can also upgrade to a “Be Green Ticket” for $4.00. When a Green Ticket is purchased, Green Mountain Energy Company will provide, on behalf of the Green Ticket buyer, 500 kWh of renewable energy made from sources like wind and bio-energy. 500 kWh of renewable energy will offset the environmental impact of approximately 682 pounds of CO2, which is the equivalent of not driving a car 758 miles or the annual carbon sequestration of 40 trees.
