We are selling our buttons and posters on Big cartel now!! everything you buy will go straight helping us raise money to fed up fest! 

Where is the money to fed up fest going to? Besides paying for bands, and venue spaces and other such things to actually have the fest be up and running, Fed up fest is a fundraiser for PROJECT FIERCE!  a new local organization that’s mission is to reduce LGBTQ youth homelessness in Chicago by providing affirming transitional housing and support services to homeless LGBTQ young adults. We want this festival to be not only a space that can foster positive change in the punk world but beyond as well! All of us on the collective actively strive to work on building better communities inside and out of DIY and we hope that by raising money we can help build lasting bonds within Chicago’s multiple thriving LGBTQIA spheres (and build lasting bonds with folks around the country as well!).

So come buy our buttons! There’s nothing cooler than having a big button that says gay on it (just in case anyone forgets ya kno?)

Fed Up Fest Band Application 2016
Fed Up Fest seeks to elevate the music and visibility of queer & trans people engaging with and confronting white supremacist, heteropatriarchy and actively challenging microaggressions, cultural appropriation, and rape culture in our punk & hardcore scenes. We're looking for bands that are queer as an adjective AND queer as a verb. We're a collective of punks who want to have fun at shows rather than feel afraid, and see the necessity in actively seeking ways to destroy what destroys us (FTP, ACAB, etc.). With all of that in mind, we especially encourage Black and non-Black people of color to apply to play Fed Up Fest. We recognize the importance of prioritizing marginalized communities as a mode of combating the perpetual whitewashing of our punk & hardcore scenes. Lastly, bands comprised ENTIRELY of cis, straight, white people need not apply. Again, we are explicitly seeking to elevate queer and trans -- particularly POC -- visibility and music in punk & hardcore scenes. Thanks for applying!

The band application for this year’s fest is now open!
