Add to My Events Calendar Mint Green Music Festival
Mint Green Music Festival (MGMF) announces its first round of musical acts performing at the festival’s 2012 event on August 24 and 25 at the Salem County Fairgrounds (735 Harding Highway) in Woodstown, NJ. Main Stage headliners of this two-day event are Asheville, NC’s TWO FRESH and the electro-vintage sounds of BOOMBOX. The rest of the first round lineup includes—ARCHNEMESIS, DR FAMEUS, ZOOGMA, THE MALAH, THE INDOBOX, LASER SEX, HORIZON WIRELESS, SONKIN, SPEAKERBOT, and more. A second round of artists will be announced in upcoming weeks to complete the lineup for the MGMF’s main stage, indoor side stage and TheUntz.com Stage.
Located just 40 minutes outside of Philadelphia, the Salem County Fairgrounds is convenient in location, accommodates weekend camping, and is the perfect venue to highlight the Mint Green Arts Program. MGMF will provide a mixture of installation, interactive and live art, with many of the projects focusing on the idea of community and our impact on the environment as well as one another. MGMF will attempt to use as many recycled and natural materials as possible in all installation art and most of the live art created on-site will be available for purchase upon completion.
MGMF also looks to engage and inform its guests through daytime workshops and activities that raise awareness on sustainable and healthy living. Workshops will feature hands-on sustainable housing projects, organic growing information, and yoga instruction. MGMF will also host a locally-grown Farmer’s Market, Health & Wellness Pavilion, and a festival-wide recycling and composting system. Other weekend activities include: fireside drum circle, Mint Green Lounge, Arts & Crafts Village, both traditional and vegetarian food vendors, and Strangers Helping Strangers food drive (www.SHStrangers.com).

First tier tickets are priced at $85.00 and include weekend camping along with admission.
