“Our music-driven platform educates attendees to learn about the many ways we can minimize our collective environmental impact,” said Lindsay Stevens Gardner, founder and executive director, Rock the Green. “This diverse lineup includes bands from all parts of the world and reflects Rock the Green’s mission to unite concert-goers through a shared music and sustainability experience.” 

According to Stevens Gardner, Third Eye Blind will headline Rock the Green as the band prepares to release its latest album. 

“The environment is a passion of mine, and it is critical that we all learn to live more sustainably,” said Stephan Jenkins, lead vocalist of Third Eye Blind. “Rock the Green provides the stage to drive focus to this cause, so that we can make the necessary changes as a collective group.”

Canadian indie rock and new wave act Metric will also take the stage at Rock the Green.

According to Stevens Gardner, Switchfoot will also perform during Rock the Green 2012. “Environmental sustainability has become an increasingly important topic. We look forward to being a part of that message at Rock the Green,” said Jon Foreman, lead vocalist of Switchfoot.
