Coastalong Festival -- 4/29
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 will be bigger and better than ever, with an impressive lineup of super-talented bands including our headliner HOLYCHILD. Not to mention, you'll have access to yummy food from Nushii, Salt & Straw, Imperfect Produce, and more. Don't miss out on our flower crown making workshop, free yoga class, paint-by-numbers installation, snow cone bike, spin art bike, merch table, and raffle, either!
All things considered, our primary aim is to educate about current strides in green innovation by showcasing unconventional - and fun! - forms of alternative energy. So let's ride!
