RVIVR | LATTERMAN | OI POLLOI | SKARP || NEW DIRECTIONS FEST | AUGUST 3-5 in OLYMPIA

Announcement:

NEW DIRECTION FEST // AUG. 3-5, 2012 // OLYMPIA, WA

New Direction Fest 2012 will be a space for people of the worldwide hardcore and punk community to share experiences, skills, ideas, and information about community organizing and other forms of radical action. This convergence will include live bands, workshops, and speakers engaged in the practical application of the radical ideas and values of hardcore punk. Through these, we hope to inspire and to mobilize one another to form a global network of resistance and a movement for radical change, both within punk and without. Every band performing has experience with political organizing, community projects, and resisting systems of oppression and exploitation. The goal of this fest is to breathe new life into the hardcore tradition of resistance and to push our networks towards a NEW DIRECTION where we can bridge the gap between hardcore values and the application of these values through radical practice.
