First 100% environmentally sustainable rock concert coming to Dubai
‘Rock the World-Save the Planet’ will take place at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium
When it comes to rock concerts, we’re always onboard. And knowing that it isn’t harming the environment in any way only makes us want to rock out even harder.
What claims to be the first 100 percent environmentally sustainable rock concert by Neutral Fuels is coming to Dubai, and it promises to have a net-zero carbon footprint.
Kicking off all the carbon-free jams on Friday November 15 from 7pm onwards, ‘Rock the World-Save the Planet’ has partnered up with One Tree Planted.
Unavoidable carbon expended on due to the concert, such as flights for the bands coming to Dubai, will be apparently be accurately measured and offset by planting trees.
Taking place at Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium, Neutral Fuels has also partnered up with DGrade who will collect all plastic from the event, reusing it to make clothing and accessories by converting the plastic to sustainable yarn.
Who can you rock your socks off to? The concert’s star line-up boasts Cueshé, an award-winning pop-rock band from Manila, and Razorback, a hard rock band who opened for legendary rockers Rage Against The Machine and Metallica.
There’s also Urbandub, from Philippines and Sandstörm, a Dubai rock cover band which features Karl Feilder as its lead singer.
“Ordinarily, a rock concert with its massive sound, complex lighting and special effects, emits tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere using energy from the national grid,” said founder and CEO of Neutral Fuels Karl W Feilder told Arabian Business.
“Rock the World/Save the Planet is different. It will achieve net zero carbon emissions by using Neutral Fuels B100 net zero biofuel to power the entire event."
