WICKER PARK — Earth, beer and live music fans, take note: there's a fest for you.
The fifth annual Green Music Fest kicks off noon Saturday on Damen Avenue between North Avenue and Schiller Street in Wicker Park.
The two-day festival includes live music on two stages from 18 local and national touring bands, eco-minded vendors, arts and crafts, family activities and cell phone charging stations using solar-powered technology.
Taking its name seriously, food vendors will be prohibited from using Styrofoam containers and plastic bottles, according to a news release, which touts a "comprehensive waste recycling system," and staffers who will assist attendees with disposing of their compostable and recyclable items.

Ald. Joe Moreno (1st) will have a satellite office at the fest from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday.
"I work towards being the most accessible Alderman possibly and would be happy to hear about any issues in the neighborhood, take service requests or just chat," Moreno wrote in his e-newsletter Thursday.
A $5 suggested donation to benefit event sponsors Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce, Wicker Park Parents' Association and the Chicago Center for Green Technology is requested for admittance to the fest.
The music fest will run from noon to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The Green Family Fun Fest, located on Wicker Park Avenue just south of Damen Avenue, will be open from noon to 5 p.m. both days.
