The Avett Brothers (left) sing "Salvation Song" on the Fais Do Do stage. "We came for salvation/We came for family/We came for all that's good that's how we'll walk away/We came to break the bad/We came to cheer the sad/We came to leave behind the world a better way."

They weren't the only ones singing about the environment. Local band Ivan Neville & Dumpstaphunk sang their hit "Put it in the Dumpster," which encourages people to do you-know-what.
