The four-day ROTHBURY music and camping festival is being promoted as a “cultural assembly; one where music fans, artists and progressive thinkers gather to celebrate much more than music.” 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 and Clean Energy Alternatives.
Featuring a diverse musical line-up including Widespread Panic, Modest Mouse, Trey Anastasio, Dave Mathews Band, Primus, and many, many more – the festival is certain to be one of the best gatherings of the summer.
Well, would you like to go to ROTHBURY: The Music Festival With A Purpose at the Double JJ Ranch in Michigan this weekend, July 3rd – 6th?
I figured as much. And because I’ll be covering the event for the Green Options Media Network, and reporting back all week, I was able to score a few extras that I’d like to share with our readers. But I can’t just give them away, so in 100 words or less, answer the following question:
What is right, and what is wrong, with the environmental movement today?
Take the question in any direction you want. Sorry, I won’t be able to answer questions about contest details -pretend it’s a pop-quiz and do your best :). The most intriguing short essay wins its author a pair of four-day passes to the festival (a $500 value).
