MICHAEL FRANTI AND GUERRILLA MANAGEMENT HOST 10TH ANNUAL
POWER TO THE PEACEFUL FESTIVAL
FREE Music, Arts and Yoga Fest Set for September 6 in Golden Gate Park

With Yoga Classes at Yoga Flow Castro on September 7

September 6, 2008, will mark the 10th anniversary of famed musician, filmmaker and activist for peace Michael Franti’s free Power to the Peaceful Festival (PTTP) in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Beginning in 1998, this music, arts and yoga festival, dedicated to educating attendees on issues of social justice, non violence, coexistence and environmental sustainability, has become a staple of San Francisco. Growing from a crowd of 6,000 ten years ago to an estimated 60,000+ for this year’s weekend event, PTTP is one of the nation’s largest free annual music, art and action festivals with a variety of international musicians and artists, renowned keynote speakers and over 200 exhibitors/vendors.

The weekend-long festival begins on Saturday, September 6, with appearances by such musicians as Michael Franti and Spearhead, Ziggy Marley, Warren Haynes, King Britt, Cheb i Sabbah, and a variety of renowned DJ’s and other international acts. Throughout the event, various speakers including Namkha Rinpoche Lama, will address these various issues on the main festival stage and participate in the Amnesty International Sponsored Social Forum Speaker Tent. The Mezzanine in San Francisco will host the Festival AFTERPARTY, featuring an Allstar Jam Session and DJ dance party. Sunday, September 7 will offer a day of yoga at Yoga Flow Castro, hosted by Power to the Peaceful Yoga. PTTP is committed to working with the best teachers available to provide free yoga to those in need and to bring yoga to people and places around the world (prisons, schools, developing nations) who have never had the opportunity to experience its many benefits. Visit www.powertothepeaceful.org/yoga for class schedule and other details. Again this year, Conscious Alliance will host a Food Drive. PTTP attendees are encouraged to bring ten non-perishable food items to redeem for an exclusive PTTP Food Drive Poster. All donations will go to benefit the San Francisco Food Bank (www.SFfoodbank.com).

Mission Statement: MUSIC. CONSCIOUSNESS. ACTION.

Power to the Peaceful is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to the promotion of cultural co-existence, non-violence and environmental sustainability through the arts and music.

By bringing people together through music and art it is our goal to highlight the similarities and celebrate the diversity of all of the world’s inhabitants.

Through our many International concerts, social forums, film festivals and fund raising efforts, we invite people of all ethnicities and faiths to strive for Personal Peace, Community Cooperation, International Co-existence and Environmental Sustainability.

We work closely with grassroots organizations, businesses and other non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) to put on events that raise consciousness about the needs of the world today and inspire action that addresses those needs.

We strive to make each of our events more energy efficient than the last by constantly finding ways to reduce our carbon footprint as well as highlighting new energy efficient technologies.
