Our mission is to educate and inspire UCLA students about unconventional uses of renewable energy while showcasing the link between sustainability, health, music and a wheel-y good time.
At the pilot Ecochella on May 24, 2013, eight student groups and a popular local band played for four hours with a sound system powered by the energy of students’ legs for an audience of nearly one thousand. The night was filled not only with pedal-powered music but also bike-powered smoothies and ice cream, a giant sustainability fair, a solar powered food truck, a yoga class and a sassy bluegrassy moonlit dance/bike party to headliner Dustbowl Revival.
