In celebration of Earth Day, Radio 92.9 announced plans today for their 18th annual EarthFest concert. The free day-long festival will take place at Boston’s Hatch Memorial Shell on Saturday, May 21 with music from OK Go, Ed Kowalczyk of Live, Sponge and Atomic Tom.

Presented by Whole Foods Market, Radio 92.9 calls the free festival “a celebration for the Earth, showcasing national and local music acts, environmentally friendly products and local non-profit environmental organizations”.

The festival will kick off with a set from one local band that will be determined through the “Boch Boston Bands” competition. Bands can apply online, where fans will then select the top four bands to perform in a live battle for the right to open this year’s EarthFest.

Chicago’s OK Go are touring in support of their latest album, 2010’s Of the Blue Colour of the Sky, while Former Live frontman Ed Kowalczyk is on the road to promote his debut solo album, 2010’s Alive. The bill is rounded out by 90’s rockers Sponge and Brooklyn-based Atomic Tom, who have received loads of buzz since the release of their debut album The Moment last summer.

Last year’s Earthfest featured Collective Soul, Gin Blossoms, Crash Kings and Marcy Playground.
