Green Festival Speakers
Melodeego is Music from the Movement, Powered by the People! It started five years ago when a friend asked them to perform at a rally for social justice and the environment. They had always cared about these issues, but had never put them together with music. Once they got on stage and saw how passionate everyone was, they connected with the crowd in a very real and powerful way, and their music came alive with an incredibly new energy and meaning. As the climate justice movement grew, Melodeego started picking up momentum. They began performing all shows with a bike-powered sound system, participating in major events like the “Do the Math” Tour with Bill McKibben, and writing the music for actions like the Funeral For Our Future, The March On Brayton Point, and the Energy Exodus. This movement inspires their music every day, and gives them the courage to fight for our future!
