DIY Conspiracy Booking
We enjoy life, we enjoy live music and we are all involved in many different projects besides DIY Conspiracy.
We understand that the Internet has become the primary avenue for dispersing information, or to connect people with similar ideas and desires. That’s why we have a presence on the web. But we also still combine our efforts to externalize them on the outside world. We book our favorite bands and artists, print and distribute zines, organize events, movie screenings, and presentations.
We are based in Bulgaria. Here we book artists that we want to see coming to our place. What we guarantee to the artists?
- Finding the most suitable venue available at the moment;
- Doing the most relevant promotion given the existing circumstances;
- Cooking vegan food for you (we stick to healthy, whole food plant-based diet);
- Providing a sleeping place (usually at someone’s 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/donation for 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.
If you’d like to give some helping hand, please consider donating a small amount to keep us afloat.
