Does anyone know if any free fests still exist in England? I'd love to know.


I've been racking my brains, but can't think of any, which really sucks; being the poor student type, i can't really afford the prices of festival tickets over here! But i would love to know if there are any.

Does anyone know of any festivals in the PA area? Preferrably around Harrisburg of Philadelphia? Sadly, I don't really know how to find out about them but I've been wanting to go to one for a really long time.

I already know about the Philadelphia Folk Festival, but I was wondering if there were any others that perhaps aren't as well-known and therefore don't have as many rules. (IE. no restrictions on alcohol, etc...which is how it's like for the Philly Folk Fest)

Can't think of any fests in portland that are free. But I should let y'all know that this saturday and sunday Seattle is holding their Hempfest, which is one of the largest pro-ganja festivals in north america. It will be held at Myrtle Edwards park. They do suggest a $5 donation, but it's optional. They'll be thankful to have your support. And they're still looking for volunteers, even if it's to walk around with a garbage bag and help with the litter. And at around 4:19, one of the stages throws out a bunch of joints. Sure, it's kinda cheap nasty weed, but it's free.

That would be the Northwest String Summit you are talking about, featuring Yonder Mountain with Darol Anger. However, it's not free. I'm sure the cost has gone up to $130 or so for the event. However, that does include all 4 days/nights of festivities as well as camping. Not a bad deal, in my opinion. I had a blast both times I went. More info at http://www.stringsummit.com

any free in east tennessee, knoxville/servierville/maryville/morristown area? :D


I'll second that. I live in Johnson City, Tennessee and would love to know of anything free east of Nashville, or around Asheville, NC, Pikeville, KY or Virginia Tech Uni.

I just left Miami, because its so damn expensive for one thing, I basically hated the place. But the festivals are one thing that I will miss, the massive street festivals. If you live in miami, you already know about these. But if you are going to be visiting miami, check out;

Goombay festival; big bahamian street fest on Grand ave in Coconut Grove. Though, its not in a great neighborhood, I've never heard of problems going down (Pick pockets, muggings, etc.), and I've been to a few

Calle Ocho Festival; When about a million cubans and their friends come out to party on Calle Ocho. (Also, not a great area, but the cubans won't fuck with you.)

Coconut Grove Arts festival; relatively cheap beer and decent arts for sale. I think I drank about 6 quarts of beer there last year.

Key Biscayne Arts festival is much smaller, but decent

Miami Beach always has something going on.

Bayfront park theatre right downtown often has free concerts. I remember going to a reggae concert down there when I was in high school and I couldn't believe it. EVERYBODY was reefin, and there was a decent police precense that didn't seem to care. I assume they still have free concerts.

Check out the Miami Times.

The only big one I see coming up in the near future (before summer) is the Green Apple Festival-Los Angeles. Anyone been there or going there?

That's not the only one before summer.
The Davis Whole Earth Festival is going to be on Mother's Day weekend (May 9,10 & 11).
Crafts booths & alternative lifestyle education groups are suplimented by 4 entertainment stages (whose PR is lagging this year) and 3 venues dedicated to sustainability education.

Even though PR is lagging, I am assured that the Brothers of the Beledi will be performing (on Quad stage, not mine :sniff1: ). So will Tempest. And maybe...(no, can't publicise bands until confirmation. Bad Michael! Bad!)

This year, the DJ stage returns to the Wellman Pit, with its great accoustics and tight space. Leaving W.Stage (the one I'm managing) to have live bands until closing every day.

The solar rig that has powered previous dance stages is unavaliable, but it looks like we've found another, so Soular Dance Stage's history of being off the grid will continue.

Our waste reduction program achieved 98.2% diversion rate last year. Only 300 lb of the Festival's refuse went to the landfill, the rest was composted or recycled. Not bad for a 30,000 attendee event.

This is the longest running free festival on the West Coast. It started as the final for Jose Argueilles's Art History class in 1969 and has changed and grown since then.

Stop on by and check it out. Come see me at W.Stage.
May 9, 10, 11 on the U.C. Davis Quad. (15mi. W of Sacramento)

(Sorry, Univeristy property = no camping)
