DIY Conspiracy
The (International) DIY Conspiracy

DIY Conspiracy Booking

Besides creating content for our website, we are also booking shows for international community of musicians and artists touring Europe. We have close connections with DIY promoters around the Balkans and we book gigs for those artists we want to see coming to Bulgaria.

How’s that? Because the founding members of DIY Conspiracy are based in Bulgaria.

What do we guarantee to the artists?

  • Finding the most suitable venue available at the moment;
  • Doing the most relevant kind of promotion given the existing circumstances;
  • Cooking vegan food for the bands (we stick to healthy, whole food plant-based diet);
  • Providing a sleeping place (oftentimes at someone’s floor at home);
  • Usually we agree on door deal, but we can also consider any other reasonable offer.

We also try to make the event itself as interesting, inspiring, and inclusive as possible. Occasionally, we cook vegan food for free/pay-what-you-want to anyone who’s coming to the show, and/or try to entertain the audience with screenings, spoken word, or something else.

We do not book bands and artists if we don’t like their music or any other form of expression (including their lyrics). We don’t support any authoritarian and oppressive ideologies. If you are affiliated with anything that contradicts with DIY hardcore punk’s anti-oppressive framework, please don’t bother contacting us at all.

No sponsorship deals, no advertisement!

The gigs we organize are DIY and not-for-profit, therefore we rely on our own limited resources. Your small donations will help us to continue organizing future events and running the zine on the web.
