350 Bay Area is joining the Bicycle Music Festival folks for a September extravaganza in Oakland. This year’s Bay Area festival is in partnership with Love Our Lake Day, an independent street closure organized by Walk Oakland Bike Oakland (WOBO).
At the 2014 Love Our Lake Day, there were two Pedal Powered Stages, one organized by Rock The Bike at Home Away From Home and the other by Justin Ancheta at the Amphitheater.
BMF is familiar with and really into Lake Merritt as a venue. BMF's most recent events at Lake Merritt Amphitheater have included 2 Climate Rallies, an anti-GMO rally, and an environmental global water day. At those rallies they helped Pedal Power. There was some music, but mostly speaking. At BMF it’s going to be mostly Pedal Powered music with some speaking.
It’s fitting that this year’s BMF is going to be a Climate Concert — a concert punctuated by intelligent and inspiring speeches.
Confirmed speakers include Mark Hertsgaard, Margaret Gordon and Doria Robinson and Spoken Word artist Dominique Christina as MC.
At 5PM BMF will lead their famed LiveOnBike performance parade to the Omni Commons Night Venue (4799 Shattuck in Oakland). Below: the Night Venue of the 2013 BMF: a street closure in the Mission.
See you there! Bring your bike.
