The Flaming Lips, HAIM, Khruangbin, more to play The Big Climate Thing festival

Climate Control Projects has teamed up with Brian Eno’s EarthPercent for a three-day festival in New York City called The Big Climate Thing.

Taking place at Forest Hills Stadium from September 16th to 18th, the Big Climate Thing lineup is set to feature big names like The Flaming Lips, HAIM, Khruangbin, Sheryl Crow, Courtney Barnett, The Weather Station and many more.

“I think music, along with all the cultural industries, have spent way too long sitting back on this issue,” The Weather Station’s Tamara Lindeman tells Rolling Stone. “I believe music plays a primarily emotional role in people’s lives, and as such I think it has huge potential in pushing us to recognize our tangled emotions around this topic. When I imagine a stadium full of people coming together for a climate event centered on music, what I imagine is an enormous opportunity to feel a solidarity that has been so missing here. I truly hope that an enormous in-person event can have some power to bring people together and create some common experience around climate, and push those in attendance to examine their climate feelings and push through them enough to act.”

Check out the lineup for The Big Climate Thing below.

Acts like Gary Clark Jr., Princess Nokia, Bonny Light Horseman, Mykki Blanco, Antibalas, Guster, Valerie June, and more will also play The Big Climate Thing.

Tickets for The Big Climate Thing go on sale on June 30th at 10:00 a.m.
