Coastalong Festival 2017
We're shifting gears! In case you haven't heard, Ecochella is now Coastalong Festival.
Coastalong is your one and only bike-powered music and sustainability festival at UCLA. This year, Coastalong was held on April 29th. 2017. There was an impressive lineup of super-talented bands including their headliner HOLYCHILD. There were some delicious vendors, such as Nushii, Salt & Straw, Imperfect Produce, and more. There was even a flower crown making workshop, a free yoga class, a paint-by-numbers installation, a snow cone bike, a spin art bike, a merch table, and a raffle!
All things considered, the primary aim was to educate about current strides in green innovation by showcasing unconventional - and fun! - forms of alternative energy. Check out the Coastalong Facebook page for photos!
