It's a party for Planet Earth, man.
The inaugural Friends of Nature Festival's got some lofty goals. Namely, being "one of the first eco-friendly interactive music festivals in Miami ... to educate the public on sustainability, the well-being of the planet, and how to contribute to saving it." But it's also about quality tunes, good times, and having some "FON."
So whether you're an eco warrior or just a rock en español aficionado, you should be stoked that FONFEST has added another 35 acts, from Mexico's Café Tacvba to Colombia's Palenke Soultribe, not to mention our city's own Krisp, ArtOfficial, and Laura of Miami.
Check the cut for the full Friends of Nature 2013 lineup.
