AbstractConcern for carbon emissions is growing and every day that the world uses fossil fuels pushes us closer to irreparable damage. This paper focuses on the impact of outdoor music festivals, their carbon footprints, where they source energy from, and how to make it more environmentally friendly. Thousands of large music events take places around the globe each year, and with a growing population, this issue will only get worse. Working with Relentless Beats of Arizona, this paper uses Decadence Arizona as a case study. Decadence Arizona is an annual 2-day music festivals taking place on New Year’s Eve and New Years Day, in Chandler, Arizona. This paper will determine how, and what resources are needed to power Decadence through solar panels alone. All costs calculated are based on averages of the Phoenix metropolitan area at the time of review.
