Concert Venue // Do-It-Ourselves Fest 2017

September 14, 2017

4:00 pm

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

A weekend of workshops, discussions, performances, fun, and play! See new bands and make new friends all while celebrating DIY culture. 100% FREE to attend! Donations are appreciated. EVERYBODY is welcome!

The system is broken and it’s on us to fix it. One way we can help is by sharing our skills, knowledge, and passions with other folks in our community. That’s what Do-It-Ourselves Fest is all about. Everybody’s got something to offer, be it a skill or song. Now’s your chance!

Kid-friendly activities and on-site childcare will be available for much of the festival.
