Billie Eilish and REVERB Partner Up With Lollapalooza To Use Solar Powered

In an effort to bring solar-powered, intelligent battery systems to her eagerly anticipated headlining performance at Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL on Thursday, August 3, Billie Eilish is collaborating with environmental non-profit REVERB and the festival.

A temporary onsite “solar farm” will be used to charge the zero-emission battery systems partially powering Billie Eilish’s upcoming performance, which will be provided and managed by Overdrive Energy Solutions. This will serve as a powerful demonstration of clean energy technologies that can significantly lower live music’s greenhouse gas pollution and hasten the transition away from fossil fuels.

This ground-breaking initiative is part of the Music Decarbonization Project, which Eilish helped launch and fund, and is REVERB’s campaign to advance innovative climate solutions to directly eliminate carbon emissions caused by the music industry. This daring and revolutionary move will serve as a powerful example of an emerging clean energy solution that can help reduce live music’s carbon footprint rapidly.

“We hope and believe this will be a watershed moment for the music industry,” says Adam Gardner of REVERB. “There are real climate solutions available right here, right now. By showcasing this technology with one of the biggest artists in the world, on one of the most revered festival stages, we’re accelerating the necessary transition toward a decarbonized future, for music and beyond.”

The goal at Lollapalooza is to further demonstrate clean energy technology’s ability to power large stages while also driving the music industry toward a future less reliant on highly polluting diesel generators.
