MILWAUKEE (CelebrityAccess) — Organizers for Rock the Green, an environmentally friendly music festival, have announced that the event has been cancelled for the second year in a row.
The festival was set to take place on September 13, but a lineup had yet to be announced.
In a post on the festival's Facebook page, a spokesman for Rock the Green wrote:
"Since our last festival, Rock the Green has been working to build on our success and continue integrating near-zero waste best practices into local events like the city of Milwaukee’s annual Earth Day celebration. While we won’t be hosting a 2014 festival, we are finalizing our 2015 events calendar and sponsor lineup, and expect to have some good news to announce during the first part of 2015. The schedule will include an expanded fourth annual EarthDay? celebration on Wednesday, April 22, featuring multiple bands on a pedal-powered stage.
Last year's edition of the festival was cancelled after they lost their main sponsor, Veolia Environmental Systems, following its acquisition by another company. – Staff Writers
