Hey folks! As the actual festival creeps nearer we’re going to need some volunteers to help us with some things the days of. We’ll need help with the following:
- setting up/making signs before the show on Friday
- cleaning up after the shows on Friday and Saturday
- working the bake sale and merch tables
- baking things for Saturday’s bake sale (vegan food only please)
- housing out of towners (check out the forum for that)
- cooking for bands
and maybe some other things. If you’re available to volunteer send us an email; firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance!
We just updated the tumblr so that information on tickets & the message board was a little easier to find!
Hey everyone, Tacocat (Seattle) and Forever(Portland) will be playing short sets on Friday night. Unfortunately Appalachain Terror Unit has dropped off the fest, but Cojoba (NY) will be taking their spot, and we have also added Lechuza (Chicago) on Sunday!

We intend to undermine patriarchy, homophobia, and transphobia in punk and DIY by showcasing music created by individuals with various identities and backgrounds. We provide workshops so that we can learn how to build more inclusive communities that are free from oppression. CLITFest aims to be safe space where we can take a critical look at ourselves and our environment and where we can inspire one another to use our voices, our ideas, and our creativity to develop a more egalitarian community.
