Santa Barbara Bowl Goes Green

Venue Takes Steps to Make Concerts More Eco-Friendly


The Santa Barbara Bowl has officially gone green, as of its July 10 Incubus show. This means the next concert you see there could be enjoyable for both you and Mother Nature as well. Changes include a free bicycle valet system to better accommodate traffic, a trash diversion team helping concert-goers separate paper, plastic, and food scraps from the trash, and a herd of goats chowing down on surrounding vegetation to reduce fire hazards. Check out these photos of the Bowl’s greenification and look for Michelle Drown’s exciting full-length story at independent.com soon.
