A multi-media gathering of multi-generational icons, outlaws, creatives and subversives from the underground for a music and art O.D.

WTF Fest: A multi-media gathering of multi-generational icons from the underground, where we present the opportunity for creatives and subversives to get together, to get it on and get off.


A variety of outspoken, boundary pushing performers, writers and artists will gather for political debates and drunken knuckle fights, to inform, entertain and create. This will be an underground event of historic proportions, not some run of the mill show -- This is history in the making!


WTF will hit 6 cities. We are looking to Kickstarter for help covering the costs bringing all these amazing people together... that includes planes, trains and automobiles, and that gas ain’t cheap.


This event is an all day, all night deal.Some guests can NOT be listed, they are super secret surprises, some guests WILL be added and announced each and every week.


The 1st WTF will take place in Austin, Texas on March 14th.


The additional dates kick off April 21st in Portland

Portland, Oregon.

Eugene, Oregon

Astoria, Oregon

Olympia, Washington

Seattle, Washington

MORE ABOUT WTF:


So far, here’s a list of artists who have signed up and are confirmed for WTF: John Sinclair, Mike IX, Rick Shapiro, Shane & Amy Bugbee, Ugly Shyla, Dave Archer, Dave Densmore and a ton of local musicians and artists join us in this massive collaboration, please check the website for more info on the whos, the whats, the wheres and the whys. We will also be showing short video clips between artists, speakers, and bands.... making each and every show unique, like a snow flake, no two show will be the same.


As you may know, events like this are costly… Funding is needed for airfare, gasoline, lodging, a/v rental, sound and marketing (print + digital). Some of the performers are elders, and will have special additional needs - Believe it or not, 65 and over performers actually need to sleep on a flat surface in a warm place???


WTF INTENT:


To offer a venue and support for the creative class to gather, to conspire, to scream and shout, to speak out, speak to, speak up, and to laugh and to be political with out being pawns, and of course to push the boundaries of mind and taste. To be political without being pawns. We gather to inspire change by showing what an unleashed creative mind can do, can say, can act and can live -  free and by it's own bounds.


THE GOAL:


We'd like WTF to be 100% FREE TICKET as in FREE ENTRY into the event.

$2000 will cover some really basic expenses, but... WE NEED TO EXCEED OUR GOAL!

If we can reach the goal of $3000. we will make the Austin event 100% FREE FOR ALL - ALL FOR FREE ADMISSION!! If we can raise a total of $7,000. then ALL of the shows will be FREE! Who doesn’t love a good old fashioned FREE FOR ALL?!?!?!?


WTF isn’t impossible and the more cash we raise, the more places we can bring WTF to... We’d love to see WTF realized in the Midwest and the East Coast as well. So, if you like the idea, spread the word near and far.


This is the real underground, not some well planned and mass marketed, trust fund fueled, white washed, and made safe bullshit... This is from the streets, from the zipcodes you love to hate... No well connected, trust fund artists here, check the links and you’ll see that these individual‘s lives and talents are the things others observe and then make movies about.

Here's some of the artists involved in WTF Fest...
