IMAGINE ZERO: An aspiring zero waste and zero carbon emissions music festival with performances by Dawes, Kat Wright, Myra Flynn, Ben Kogan Band, Michael Daves, Brandon Heisler and Billy Wylder.
HOW WAS IMAGINE ZERO BORN?
Two friends who are passionate about helping the environment, Ben Kogan and Cliff Johnson, talked about how to bring two of their favorite things (music and eco-friendly iniatitives) together in the fall of 2022. By December, they decided to turn that dream into reality and create Imagine Zero.
WHAT IS THE POINT OF IMAGINE ZERO?
To bring people together to enjoy great music in a way that minimizes the impact on the environment and allows us all to learn together how to foster a better path forward for environmental stewardship.
SOME OF OUR ASPIRATIONS
Weather is weather! The festival goes on rain or shine! We will provide consistent weather updates and prepare all our fans and artists in advance.
Once you purchase a festival ticket you will receive a confirmation email from our ticket partner, Bookitbee. Your ticket will be attached to that email confirmation. We don’t like wasting paper so please plan to print the ticket at home or have it easily accessible on your smartphone. For ticketing technical issues click here - https://help.liveit.io/support/home
Festival Hours/Run of Show
Gates open at 11 and the first band will start at noon. There will be 15min set changes between each performance with the festival ending around 8pm following the last set. We hope you stay all day and evening, but if you have to leave for any reason, you will be allowed re-entry with a valid Imagine Zero wristband.
SolarFest has roughly 1500 parking spaces including those reserved for handicap, staff and the performers. Ticket sales cap at 3000 so it is highly encouraged that you carpool or use ride share apps! It’s better for the environment and you get more time to hang with your friends! The town of Brandon is approximately 1 mile from the venue and you will need to park and walk or use a ride share app if spaces run out.
Food & Drink
There will be a wide selection of food vendors within the venue so come hungry! We do allow small snack bags or snacks that fit in your pocket. What we don’t allow are coolers or picnic baskets. We will have plenty of amazing food options to choose from. We encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottles (water stations will be available onsite) . There will be no outside alcohol allowed in the venue. There’s plenty of alcohol for purchase inside the festival though. We will have security checking IDs and all fans who wish to consume alcohol will be provided a 21+ wristband. All vendors should accept credit cards. ATMs will be be available onsite, so if you wish to pay with cash, please come prepared.
