DIY Conspiracy
The (International) DIY Conspiracy

DIY Conspiracy Booking

Besides creating content for our website, we are also involved in booking shows for international community of musicians and artists touring Europe. We are based in Sofia, Bulgaria, and we have close connections with DIY promoters around the Balkans.

What do we guarantee to the artists?

  • Finding the most suitable venue available at the moment;
  • Promoting the show the best we can (press releases, printed media, radio shows, posters, etc.);
  • Preparing homemade vegan food for the bands (we stick to healthy, whole food plant-based meals);
  • Providing a sleeping place (usually at someone’s floor, so bring your sleeping bags, towels, and please take a shower);
  • Striving to make the event as interesting, inspiring, and inclusive as possible.

Most of our gigs are based on the principles of prix libre (pay-what-your-want). There’s a donation jar at the show and everyone’s free to tip whatever they choose and can afford to. It means we can’t guarantee any fixed amount of money to anyone. Although, we will try to cover your expenses.

Since 2019, we organize a three-day DIY festival—of music, friendship, and politics—in the first days of May. It’s also a celebration of the May Day, International Workers‘ Day.

We won’t book any bands / artists if we don’t like their music, lyrics, or any other form of expression. 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.

We don't sell stuff. We don't run on ads.

We need your help to continue. If you appreciate our work, please consider making a donation or pledge on Patreon by smashing one of the buttons down below.
