Support the Sea Rising Festival - a free music and environment festival in Portobello on 22 June 2024

by Porty Community Energy in Edinburgh, United Kingdom

SEA RISING FESTIVAL


On the 22nd June 2024 Porty Community Energy are organising a free music and environment festival on the promenade and beach in Portobello, Edinburgh (near the bottom of King's Road) between 1-6pm.

With the festival we would like to highlight one of the immediate impacts of climate change for our coastal community, the rising sea.

We have chosen this day as it is midsummer and a full moon, and are expecting a high spring tide...

You can join us at the sea stage, to listen to the music with the waves lapping at your ankles, to be part of a chorus of voices, and dance in the water.

On dry land there will be another stage, where you can join in a ceilidh. Visit markets and workshops, and try out different bikes.

With your help we can make it even better!

Via this Crowdfunder you can preorder Sea Rising Festival t-shirts and prints designed by local artist KMG, and other goodies

Your support will help the running of the festival, largely done by volunteers, and allow us to include additional artists, workshops, and publicity.
