Mill Valley Music Festival Powered by Batteries

The 2024 Mill Valley Music Festival will become the first-ever U.S. festival to operate entirely on mobile zero-emission batteries.

The festival partnered with Moxion Power, a California-based mobile battery energy storage system (BESS) technology company. 

Organized by the Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce and Noise Pop Industries, this two-day outdoor arts and culture festival is located just outside San Francisco and will eliminate use of all traditional diesel generators from May 11-12.

Moxion's innovative MP-75/600 mobile BESS is virtually silent and will power everything from sound stages and VIP lounges to food trucks and vendor areas. By using Moxion’s batteries instead of diesel generators this year, MVMF will avoid approximately 4.5 tons of GHG emissions.

“This crucial leap forward for the Mill Valley Music Festival comes at a critical moment in our community, as City of Mill Valley leaders, the Mill Valley Chamber, local businesses and a multitude of organizations take an all-hands-on-deck approach to reduce the burdens of climate change,” Jim Welte, executive director of the Mill Valley Chamber, in a statement. “Our City has identified reducing greenhouse gas emissions as a major reduction strategy, along with renewable energy, energy efficiency, EV infrastructure, green building and waste reduction.”
