The line-up for the Spare the Air music festival, which will take place at the Fullerton Transportation Center in Fullerton, CA from 11am to 8pm on Saturday, August 30, was announced today by Sean Francis, the event’s promoter and organizer.
“In 1994, we started what eventually became the largest Earth Day festival in the United States,” said Francis. “With the wide range of environmental issues confronting our planet, from global warming to depleting energy sources, our focus is to promote awareness of public transportation options, global warming and alternative fuels and energies."
Hosted by KROQ’s Stryker, the line-up for the main stage of the festival will feature an acoustic performance by The Used, Saosin, Lit, Sugarcult, Death by Stereo, John Easdale of Dramarama, Divide the Day and Longway. The line-up for the Ozone Dance Tent will feature Peanut Butter Wolf, DJ Harvey, B-Side Players, Free the Robots, DJ Pubes and Jamie Allensworth. Attendance is anticipated to be upward of 20,000 people.
