Break Free Fest!

This is for the punk and hardcore kids who were told they were listening to "white music". 
This is for the bands who speak their native tongue and are told no one will understand them. 
This is for those who constantly find themselves shoved to the back. 
This is for the misrepresented in a music scene that they feel so passionate about. 
This is for us

For years punk and hardcore have been deemed white genres of music, pushing aside and ignoring people of colour who have been shaping it for years. This fest wants to bring those people together and to the front to represent the many different groups who make this music the most diverse genre many claim it to be. 
In May 2017 we want to host 10 bands for one day in one space. 

The money will be used for: 
-Equipment (so bands traveling don't have to lug every single part of their system to PA)
-Paying bands for their time (because we believe in supporting bands so they can keep doing what they're doing)
-Venue Rental 
-And hopefully portions of this can also be donated at the event to charities dear to the artists hearts. 

Please help me make this dream come true so we can have this for years to come. Representation is so very important and we nmeed events like these now more than ever.
