The Bent Festival is an annual art and music festival celebrating DIY electronics, hardware hacking, and circuit bending. Each year we invite artists from across the country and around the globe to perform music with their home-made or circuit bent instruments, teach workshops to adults and children alike, create beautiful art installations and to generally come together, face to face, and showcase the state of the art in DIY electronics and circuit bending culture.

Your donations will go toward paying artists, travel expenses for out-of-towners, and materials for installations and workshops. This year, we plan to make the event bigger and better with your help-- $2000 will let us bring you a great festival, but the more money we earn here at Kickstarter, the better it will be, so don't worry about putting us well over that dollar amount!

Space for Bent Festival is generously donated by Two Trees Management Co.

Funding for Bent Festival is provided in part by the New York State Council for the Arts and the Black Rock Arts Foundation.
