The festival has been upgraded with the exciting plans for a first-ever Action Day with activist The Polish Ambassador, a Thursday Pre-Party, and the line-ups for the Silent Disco and the Beach Stage.Fitting to the spirit of giving, The Polish Ambassador launched a platform to gather musicians and fans to instigate community action called actiondays.us. He’ll be hosting a meeting at the intersection of music and activism on the banks of the Suwanee River, welcoming all festival attendees to come together early on Thursday, June 16 to unite in action. The experience is sure to build important skills, strengthen relationships, and provide tangible regenerative projects that will make Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park better for all participants to come. You can sign up right now HERE. The projects go as follows:Project 1: Restore and prepare garden areas to plant a Food Forest that will nourish the land and people for generations to come.Project 2: Build multi-purpose Waste Management Stations that reduce the amount of waste, energy, and resources consumed by inefficient disposal practices.Project 3: Learn about Soil Testing (what is in the dirt, and is it good for you?), Mycoremediation (mushrooms that clean it up!), Permaculture (how plants, animals, and people interact together) and more.As important as these food forests, waste management stations, and soil testing are, Purple Hatter’s Ball is happy to extend free camping and admission for anyone who participates in the Action Day to the Thursday Night Pre-Party, which will feature Sunsquabi, Savi Fernandez Birthday Band, Space Kadet, and Gypsy Elise. Tickets currently on sale to the public here.In addition to these newly announced Thursday Pre-Party artists, they’ve also unveiled the line-up for the Beach Stage, which is located along the wild black-water Suwannee River, and perfect for dancing away on hot summer days, and the late night Silent Disco, which will keep the party going until the wee hours of the morning.
