[ Love to see this in ATX! ]

Pickathon in Oregon this past weekend is a music festival and more that celebrates music without the Big Mess many festivals leave on Mama Earth. Sustainability is a big thing here. The stage created by students is even recyclable…

“After building smaller stages at the event the previous two summers, the student-led design and construction team took on the challenge of building a 1,000-person stage this year. As part of a 10-week course that leads up to the event, the students looked at a zero-waste construction practices and ways to divert materials from landfills; after submitting different designs, they settled on stacking massive, industrial cardboard tubes, four-to-six-foot-long cylinders normally used like toilet paper rolls to hold sheet metal, to build a honeycomb-like stage. Trucked out and assembled on site, the tubes were bolted together on the ends, forming a venue that played host to performances by Ex Hex, William Tyler and more, as well as a light show. But as quick as the stage was built, it disappeared. All the material will be repurposed and reused after the festival, and even the portions of the huge rolls that were bolted together will be shredded and used as raw material to make more tubes.”

A stage like this would be cool in ATX don’t you think? Click here to see the stage  and more 411! It’s very cool!
