During the European hunt for The Hunting Party, fans were able to experience the Power the World Power Booth, presented by Music for Relief and Siemens, a leader in innovations to harness renewable power by wind, water and solar means.
“Today, 1.3 billion people have no access to energy.”
Linkin Park launched Power the World to support the United Nations initiative, Sustainable Energy for All (#SE4ALL), projects so for including clean cookstoves in Nepal and solar suitcases for Uganda to aid in medical emergencies for births.
“Achieving sustainable energy for all is something that everyone can be involved in, and that’s why we are eager to bring our millions of music and social media fans into this conversation. – Dave Phoenix Farrell
“For us at Siemens, a company that has been closely associated with electrification and a sustainable power supply for more than 160 years, this is a cause worth supporting.” Siemens worked with Linkin Park and Warner Music to design and construct the Power Booth in record time of just seventeen days, just in time to join Linkin Park on tour in Switzerland, Germany and Austria.
The Power Booth is specially equipped with ten oversized video screens and sixty meters of LED strip to give a dramatic multimedia show to “raise awareness about energy poverty and sustainable energy.” Fans are motivated and educated on how to get involved, ending the experience by taking a selfie of themselves within the Power Booth. The photos were shared before the show.
It is currently unknown whether the Power Booth- all five tons and 15 kilowatts of power- will cross overseas and expand its power on the festival run this summer or any future tours for the states. Let’s hope it does, to further push Power the World and help bring “Sustainable energy, for all.”
