Insomniac is a company aware of the impact that music festivals have on the environment. For all of those who have gone to an Insomniac event, you know how much trash and water bottles are thrown in the floor and the amazing people that stay over to clean up after everyone make it possible for us headliners to go back to those shows we love.
Insomniac gives back to the community by collecting $1 per ticket and $10 per guest list invitee to use those funds to contribute to non-profits that do amazing work for our community. Today, in honor of Earth Day coming up and as part of their charitable campaign, Insomniac donated $10,000 to TreePeople. A company based in LA, TreePeople works to grow a sustainable future. Their goal is to create an abundant tree canopy and ample local water supply in even the most over-paved parts of the city. “We bring communities together to restore the natural watershed, and in doing so help naturally heal our city.”
With this in mind, Insomniac revealed that starting on April 17th, fans can go online and sign voluntary pledge to take on simple habits that help the environment while attending an Insomniac event. From April 17th until Earth Day, April 22nd, 500 random fans will receive e-certificate stating that a portion of Insomniac's $10,000 was made in their name. In addition, they will select one random lucky fan who will win two complimentary tickets to one of Insomniac's upcoming festivals: EDC New York or Audio on the Bay. You can sign up to pledge here.
“Through Insomniac’s work with the great team at TreePeople, I’ve learned what an important role trees play in everything from keeping our air clean to conserving water,” said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac. “I hope that our fans will show their love and support alongside us by pledging to make a positive impact on Mother Earth because we can all use a cooler, cleaner and greener place to live.”
“With Los Angeles experiencing a historic drought, we need to make every effort to both conserve water – and help our city’s trees to survive,” says TreePeople Founder and President Andy Lipkis. “We are so happy to have Insomniac’s loyal fan base be a part of positive change.”
