WICKERPARK MUSIC FESTIVAL
Wickerpark is a grassroots alternative music festival originating and located in the town of Batroun, Lebanon. It has succeeded in becoming a milestone in the independent festival experience in the country. our zero waste festival takes place in a massive field next to the founder’s beach house in the coastal town of Batroun (55km North of Beirut).
Wickerpark plays an exceptional role in the dynamics of the alternative culture in modern-day Lebanon. The musical programming of the Festival combines today’s burgeoning Lebanese talents with more established and experienced bands, and often features both local Lebanese artists and foreign guests in the space of one unique, full-blown day of festivities. For many, Wickerpark is considered to be the most laid-back, accessible and rewarding live music experience in the country.
We, at Wickerpark, believe in our duty towards the environment and the community. We devote particular effort in reaching out to the social and artistic community—via NGOs, independent initiatives by showcasing projects that revolve around sustainability, art and activism—, and outdoor activities that are aligned with the philosophy of the Festival. +++
