Libbey Bowl Rebuilding

For Ojai Music Festival

In 2009, the Hind Foundation granted $100,000 to the Ojai Music Festival towards the $3 million campaign to rebuild the Libbey Bowl. The Ojai Music Festival is a world-renowned, classical, annual music festival showcased in the enchanting Libbey Bowl. The existing Bowl, demolished after the 2010 season, needed to be replaced due to years of damage from termites and wood rot. The new Bowl will include much-needed expansions of the backstage areas for artists and production needs; a slightly expanded stage area; a more modern building utilizing green materials; improved site drainage; and planting of more than 30 trees throughout the venue for shade and beauty.

Noteworthy Outcomes
•    Improved Experience

After the construction is complete the new Libbey Bowl will open in June before the 2011 Season begins. The new Bowl will provide an enhanced experience for spectator and performer alike.
