The day is a celebration of the DIY aesthetic with bands, blogs, independent labels and club nights involved. They’ll be record stalls and listening booths across both floors all day and the bill includes The Loves, The Bobby McGee’s and Theoretical Girl.
The DIY movement is about using anything you can get your hands on to shape your own cultural entity: your own version of whatever you think is missing in mainstream culture. You can produce your own zine, record an album, publish your own book – the enduring appeal of this movement is that anyone can be an artist or creator. The point is to get involved. Amy Spencer – DIY: The Rise of Lo-Fi Culture
