Welcome to ENDOTREND! The first altruistic and sustainable Summit and festival in the world featuring music, film and art!
Festival creator Tindakan (formerly Bands for Lands) has 20 years empowering and motivating audiences around the world and now Tindakan is launching ENDOTREND, a vision of staging an altruistic, eco-friendly event that has placed community as the number 1 priority.
From it’s inception, ENDOTREND has been created as a truly philanthropic endeavor, where local artists and musicians, festival organizers and businesses give back to the community and help to inspire attendees to become civically engaged to support non-profits and philanthropic endeavors that are doing incredible work to manifest change in the communities they serve. The festival itself is designed on Tindakan’s principles incorporating a near 0 waste, near 0 energy and where possible, a near 0 emissions event.
Tindakan has partnered with a consortium of nonprofits, eco-social conscious entities and individuals of all walks of life to launch this momentous event in key locations around the world that will take place simultaneously the first weekend of October, 2016. The objective of ENDOTREND is to ignite a tipping point throughout society that will lead to transformative change. This can be accomplished by coming together more so than just as individuals.
