Join in the weekend of June 13-16 for the third annual Stop The Kaboom Festival as organizers merge music, art and community action to raise awareness about mountaintop removal and hydraulic fracturing.

The weekend event will be family friendly and filled with 30 bands – jam, rock, reggae and bluegrass. There will be live performance art, local art and food vendors, kids’ art space and guest speakers on mountaintop removal and hydraulic fracturing.

Throughout the weekend there will be building coalitions between community members working on natural gas and coal issues, also providing information on how folks can be involved in these struggles to keep West Virginia Wild and Wonderful.
