News: Ed & Boom At Kokua Festival

Eddie Vedder and Boom Gaspar join Jack Johnson at the Fourth Annual Kokua Festival on Earth Day weekend, April 21st and 22nd, 2007 at the Waikiki Shell in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The line up also includes young troubadour Matt Costa, and local Island favorites: Ernie Cruz Jr., and the Girlas.

All proceeds go to the Kokua Hawaii Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Jack and Kim Johnson to support environmental education programs in Hawaii. The funds raised from the Kokua Festival will be used to further support school recycling on Oahu, sponsor field trips and curriculum, and develop the new farm-to-school program ‘AINA in Schools.

The Kokua Festival aspires to reduce its environmental impact by offsetting the festival’s emissions, running generators and festival vehicles on bio-diesel, recycling, using biodegradable concession ware, and offering eco-friendly merchandise including reusable totes, bottles, and organic cotton clothing. Visit for details.
