For its four Caravan stops, Dave Matthews Band has teamed up with Reverb, an environmental organization committed to "greening" concert tours. For its part, the band filled its tour bus with biodiesel fuel and plans to offset the carbon footprint of each tour stop.
In return, Dave Matthews Band hopes Atlantic City festivalgoers will take advantage of several green initiatives it will offer at Bader Field.
Farmers' Market: The festival will feature a marketplace area for local and regional organic farmers and small businesses to hawk their wares. The Dinner Belle from Atlantic City and Cherry Grove Farm from Lawrenceville, Mercer County, will be among those represented.
Eco-Village: Local and national nonprofits will set up booths in this area. These include Oxfam, the Wetlands Institute, Pinelands Preservation Alliance, Conserve Wildlife Foundation of N.J., AtlantiCare, Surfrider and Work In Progress.
Hydration Stations: Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a reusable water bottle to the Caravan, as Brita FilterForGood will set up "hydration stations," areas where patrons can fill their bottles up with filtered water for free, throughout Bader Field.
