Veg Out Edition
The last few weeks or so have been quite busy here in Washington, D.C. Between the Pope's visit and the Landmark Music Festival, there has been no shortage of things to do around the city. And it doesn't look like things will be slowing down any time soon - next up on the list of big attractions in DC is this weekend's DC VegFest!
The vegetarian and vegan festival, which has been run by Compassion Over Killing over the last few years, saw over 15,000 people last year. This year, they expect more than 20,000 people to come see distinguished speakers, listen to live music, learn about vegan and vegetarian issues, and to eat lots of amazing vegan/vegetarian food. Last year, the Craft Kombucha team had the privilege of participating in the festival for the first time, and now they are back for more!
This week's playlist is in honor of the big event, consisting of artists and bands with vegan or vegetarian members. Some you may already know about (Morrissey of The Smiths is an obvious choice), and others you may not (one may be Common, the Chicago-based rapper that co-performed the Oscars' winning score 'Glory' last year).
So go ahead and check out this eclectic mix of animal-loving artists, and be sure to check out this year's festivities at VegFest, this Saturday, October 3rd, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
