We came across a great new music festival to kick off your summer of concerts.  The brand new 4-day music and art Festival For Humanity is taking place at Mountain Creek Resort in Vernon, New Jersey over Memorial Day Weekend. Festival headliners include: Third Eye Blind, Good Charlotte, John Popper and the Duskray Troubadours, From Good Homes, The New Pornographers, The Misfits, Sister Hazel, Cracker, Soul Asylum, Rebbie Jackson (sister of Michael Jackson) and many more! The festival has been created and aims to benefit charities of suicide prevention, health and nutrition. For tickets and more information, please go to: www.festivalforhumanity.com.

Other acts playing Festival for Humanity include: Amber Rubarth, Ansel Matthews, Bronze Radio Return, Caleb Hawley, CC Coletti, Chrissi Poland, A Clear Blurr, Coolie Ranx, Duwende, The Gallery, James Maddock Band, Kilby and Taylor, Lovebettie, Matt Lowell, Modern Science, Nicola, Open Book Trio, Quimby Mountain Band, Subcommittee, Swampadelica, The Drive, and more!

The Festival for Humanity is more than just great music though.  It is a cooperative effort of business, charities and artists both visual and musical to create an eventful holiday weekend that attracts fans to support the work of people dedicated to a greater good. With the partnerships of Woodfired Management and Mountain Creek-Crystal Springs Resort, this event was made possible to support and encourage charities from all over the U.S. to continue spreading their message.

Woodfired Management will share 33% of all Festival for Humanity related merchandise directly with the Kristin Brooks Hope Center and has pledged 10% of all Net Ticket Sales to the charities of Humanity Village. These shared revenues should accumulate into the hundreds of thousands as the festival unfolds. There is no cover charge for a charity to set up an information booth at the festival and they are still accepting applications. If you are interested in having your charity at the Festival for Humanity, please go to: http://festivalforhumanity.com/?page_id=61
