It’s FEST time again, that great endeavor by No Idea Records bringing over 300 bands and artists to play in over a dozen local venues, this year running for 3 days, Oct. 31 through Nov. 2.
People come from all over the country and world, most buying the wristband for access to all venues but one can choose individual venues for a given day.
Acoustic music fans have a venue of their own, the Civic Media Center, which will have twenty hours of performers Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You can see the schedule adjoining this article.
A day pass is $10 at the CMC, and with the format of short sets, you will see a lot of great music each day. You’ve got bands and performers from around the country, and great fans from around the world.
Food and drink will be on site, and you’ll support the CMC, too. Expand your musical horizons and come hang out for a day.
Also, there will be the non-FEST organized “Queer the Fest” taking place all day and evening Saturday at the block to the south of the CMC where Repurpose Project is located and will have moved out of.
Huge thanks to No Idea Records and all the volunteers for making this annual event happen.
