This was Oxfam’s sixth consecutive year reaching out to music fans at one of the world's largest and most beloved festivals.
Fans and artists like Tune-Yards and Flogging Molly showed their support this year.
At the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Oxfam draws a crowd to the Table for Nine Billion--and sets the stage for a summer concert outreach season featuring all kinds of great artists.
Over 80,000 people attended Bonnaroo this year, and our dedicated group of Oxfam volunteers and staffers set out to reach as many of those concert-goers as possible.
Music for Action offers a full album’s worth of live tracks recorded at Bonnaroo by some of music’s biggest artists, while giving fans an opportunity to take action on climate change.
By festival's end, our team gathered about 2,700 new signatures, an admirable number considering the torrential downpours that hit us periodically throughout the weekend. And a number of music artists at the festival supported Oxfam, including Ben Sollee, Wilco, St. Vincent, and Coheed & Cambria.
Ben's just embarked on his official 300-mile bike ride to the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival next week, with his Oxfam America cello case and 60 pounds of equipment in tow.
