For 19 years, the Radio 92.9 EarthFest has drawn crowds to the DCR Hatch Memorial Shell along the Charles River in Boston for this annual celebration for the Earth.

The music on the main stage will begin at 11:30 a.m. with a local band chosen through a contest hosted by Radio 92.9. Sixteen bands will be selected for the bracket and the final four will perform at an event in May. One band will be picked to play in front of thousands of people at Radio 92.9’s EarthFest. Performances on the Kid’s Planet stage begin at 10:30am.
