MONTRÉAL, CANADA – AUGUST 2010: It’s debatable whether humanity will be done with fossil fuels in twenty years or in two hundred, but it’s inevitable that sooner or later that day will arrive.

Attendees at this summer’s Osheaga Music and Arts Festival in Montréal, Quebec had, perhaps, a glimpse of that future on the Green Stage, sponsored and realized in part by Sennheiser Canada’s energy-efficient K-array loudspeaker and subwoofer technology and the Innovason Eclipse all-in-one console and signal processor. more
