Wicker Park is an event organized by Lebanese NGO â€œLebanon Green Againâ€, that was founded in 1968 and been working since then to spread awareness on nature and how to preserve it in Lebanon.
The 2nd edition of the Wickerpark Festival 2012 will be held on June 29th and 30th in an open-air venue in Batroun right by the sea. The first edition last year was a success and helped raise money to replant trees in fire-ravaged areas in Lebanon. This year, they’re focusing on repopulating Sea Urchins.
The artists that are participating in this year’s edition of Wickerpark are:
- Karl Mattar
- Sae Lis
- Who Killed Bruce Lee
- The Flying Circus
- Zeid & The Wings
- The Beirut Groove Collective
While some Lebanese are too busy burning tires and polluting the environment, others are actually trying to promote a greener Lebanon and preserve whatever is left of this country. This is why I ask you all to spread the word and support this event. You can buy tickets at Librairie Antoine for 30$.
