Audience members will have the chance to learn more about Music for Relief and its programs by visiting the Music for Relief tent at each show, which is staffed by local volunteers. The tent will feature a photo booth enabling fans to document their experience at Carnivores Tour and lend their support to the movement to take action on climate change leading up to the United Nations Climate Summit in New York on September 23. Concertgoers will also get to see, touch and try out various clean energy tools such as solar lights, the WE CARE Solar Suitcase, and a clean cookstove all are part of the Power the World initiative to bring clean energy to those who do not have access to electricity.
Music for Relief and environmental non-profit REVERB are working together with tour production, artists and fans to make Carnivores Tour more environmentally friendly. Greener touring practices include recycling throughout the venue, free water stations for refillable bottles, reusable and compostable products rather than disposable backstage and on busses and incentives like preferred parking and signed items for concertgoers who carpool. Upstaging will be coordinating biodiesel fuel for company-owned vehicles on the tour where possible.
Non-profit organizations Love Hope Strength and HeadCount will also be joining the tour for select dates. Love Hope Strength will be adding volunteers to a list of bone marrow donors and checking to see if they are matches with people who need a transplant. HeadCount is a non-partisan organization that will be registering voters and encouraging participation in democracy.
Established by Linkin Park in response to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, Music for Relief has raised over $6 million for survivors of more than 20 natural disasters across four continents including Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, earthquakes in Haiti and Japan, tornadoes in Oklahoma and Arkansas, and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
Music for Relief has also planted over 1 million trees to help reduce global warming and is raising awareness and funds for clean energy solutions as part of the Power the World initiative in partnership with the UN and UN foundation.
