Do-It-Ourselves Fest 2017

Do-It-Ourselves Fest (or D.I.O. Fest) is a free, all-ages music/learning festival happening at two locations in Lincoln, Nebraska (The Bay and The Outlook Project in Turbine Flats) on September 14th, 15th, 16th, and 17th.

Join us for workshops, discussions, presentations, musical and theatrical performances, fun and play! Share your ideas and skills, see new bands, and make new friends all in the name of unifying and strengthening DIY culture in Nebraska. All events and workshops are FREE to attend. Donations are appreciated. EVERYBODY is welcome! Kid-friendly activities and on-site childcare will be provided for much of the festival.

People are taught in the larger society that the only way to get “legitimate” education is to pay for it. As a part of that system, the expertise of individuals is also dismissed if they don’t have certain kinds of (expensive) credentials. Do-It-Ourselves Fest, and skill sharing in communities more broadly, aims to validate the free exchange of information as useful and important. Everybody is an expert at something! You don’t have to be a professional to teach, and you don’t have to pay anything to learn!

Full music lineup and event schedule TBA

If performing, facilitating, or volunteering at/for D.I.O. Fest interests you, please take a sec to fill out this app! The application deadline is July 15th!
