Break Free Fest is a 2 day punk and hardcore fest featuring bands driven by people of color. Celebrating each other is important, and this fest is for us by us! Operating as a fundraiser, all proceeds are donated after bands get paid.

We could say a lot about what our fest is doing for our community, but we’d like our participants to speak for us!

.

“In a world where I'm often isolated, unwanted, and hated, I'm left with an unceasing desire to find spaces where I feel welcomed. Luckily I came across Break Free Fest, which would unknowingly become one of the most pivotal moments in my adult life. As an angry, abused kid who was different, punk music was my first love. It comforted me when I had no escape, and it encouraged me to become a musician, but unfortunately a traumatic incident caused me to permanently walk away from the punk scene. Years later, my late best friend reawakened my love for punk music but I didn't fit in the heavily white, male dominated punk culture. Finally, after a decade of wondering if I'd ever be able to enjoy a punk show again, I found myself standing amongst a sea of Black and Brown folks from all over the country, covered in ripped jeans, patches and tattoos, as I watched an Asian-American woman onstage screaming about oppression and the need for solidarity within our community. This place was completely judgement free, and although I had attended the fest alone, I left with several new friendships because everyone I encountered treated me as if we already knew each other. All the parts that intersect to make me all that I am (Asian-American, woman, androgynous, disabled) were not only accepted but actually celebrated, which is a feeling so rare it almost created a natural high, to the point where I experienced "post-Break Free depression" afterward when I came back to reality. Ever since then I've been counting the days until the next fest, so I can experience that one weekend of the year where I get to fully live in my truth and be free all over again.”

Help us get to $1000 by the weekend!! Keep the momentum going!! . . "This was SUCH a positive and straight up healing space. I got to play last year, which was a joy, but the best part was being surrounded by rad folx of color, queer folks from every part of the spectrum, womxn and others who are usually pushed to the sidelines. It was so great to dance to Cardi B and do bachata y salsa in between hardcore punk sets <3" -Tanya P - www.Saraswathijones.com
