Moby, Neon Indian, Weyes Blood, comedian Eric Warheim and many others will hit the stage at the second annual Climate Day LA—a day-long event presented by Southern California public radio station KCRW, IHEARTCOMIX and more to celebrate the importance of finding solutions to climate change.
Climate Day LA, taking place June 27 at the Theatre at Ace Hotel, will support the Path to Positive LA initiative, which aims to reduce emissions and climate threats in Los Angeles—a city that boasts some of the worst air pollution in the US, according to a report by the American Lung Association.
Climate Day LA will begin with a daytime conference featuring lectures from climate experts, local leaders, and advocates discussing and strategizing methods to combat climate change. Speakers will include Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Climate Resolve founder Jonathan Parfrey.
The daytime conference starting at noon is free with RSVP, but general admission to the evening concert costs $35 and will feature performances by international artists and DJs including Neon Indian, Weyes Blood, Eric Warheim and more. Single admission tickets to the Benefit Gala, featuring an exclusive DJ set by iconic electronic artist Moby cost $150, and a bundle for both the concert and gala costs $185.
Climate Day LA takes place just a few weeks after President Donald Trump announced that the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement—an international agreement aiming to reduce and decelerate the harmful effects of climate change.
