Rhythm N’ Blooms has a long history of environmental initiatives, but this year we want to secure the title as the greenest music festival in Knoxville! We believe that in celebrating music and art, we can also do our part in celebrating the earth. This year we will be introducing new sustainability initiatives in order to reduce our environmental impacts as a festival as well as educate and inspire festival goers to go green as well. Below you will see some of the steps we are taking to RnBGreen!
We are teaming up with Fox & Fogarty,the City of Knoxville recycling program and Keep Knoxville Beautiful to introduce an even larger recycling service to this year’s festival! Recycling will be available along Jackson Avenue and throughout the outside venues (select indoor venues may also offer recycling independently). If you are not sure about what can be recycled, keep an eye out for one of our Green Team volunteers!
Buy and reuse RnB reusable pint glass and get a discount on refills! Not only do you get an awesome souvenir but you’ll be helping in reusing the amount of waste the festival creates!

We could not make RnB green without volunteers. Volunteers will help collect recycling, pick up litter around the festival, help fans properly dispose of waste!
