Artists: FON FEST is looking for artists who are interested in displaying their artwork onsite.

Non-Profits: FON FEST wants to help non-profit organizations spread their message to festival attendees in a unique, interactive setting. Vendors: FON FEST currently is accepting applications for vendors, food trucks, and food carts. Vendors have the opportunity to sell eco-friendly, organic, and unique crafts at various booth sites during the festival. Food vendors are encouraged to get creative with their menus, offering vegetarian and healthy options.

Volunteers: FON FEST is dedicated to reducing its carbon footprint and leaving the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park a healthy environment. The festival is looking for volunteers to contribute to the mission, supporting the festival staff in a variety of tasks such as keeping the grounds clean to making sure that attendees are safe and in a healthy environment.

Friends of Nature Music Festival (FON FEST) aims to raise awareness about saving the planet through two days of spectacular music, food, entertainment and a wide variety of activities as well as exhibitors. FON FEST will welcome thousands of attendees with the purpose of raising environmental awareness and promoting companies that have green initiatives.

Unlike many music festivals, it will source all power from natural sources such as solar, bio-fuel and natural gas generators as well as ensure all products sold remain true to the festival’s eco-friendly mandate. On the festival grounds there will be numerous recycle stations, compost stations, and water stations where attendees can refill water packs or bottles instead of creating excess waste by purchasing bottled water. It also will allow a free platform for several foundations to promote their mission to save the planet.

It is the first comprehensively eco-friendly, interactive music festival to happen in Miami. Ines Galindo and Oscar Diaz, coowners of Eyeness Productions and cofounders of FON FEST, along with festival organizers aim to set the standard for other festivals and events by encouraging environmental protection and sustainability.

Every year, the festival will donate a percentage of the sold tickets to organizations dedicated to protecting the environment. For more information, visit <www.fonfest.com>.
