Midem, an annual international trade show for the music industry, has created a new green award that it will bestow upon Live Earth later this month in Cannes, France — because Al Gore can never have too many awards. Also honored will be Denmark’s Roskilde Festival, which serves all drinks in returnable plastic mugs, and Switzerland’s Paléo Festival Nyon, which is powered entirely by wind and wave energy.
