About Don't Panic Fest: Baby, it's cold outside in February! We're going to heat up your favorite venues with a celebration of some of the finest Colorado punk rock, garage & hardcore. We even invited a few of our favorite national to join in the fun with Denver's Don't Panic Fest!
Brought to you by Mostly Harmless Podcast, 3 Kings Tavern, Hi-Dive & Mutiny Information Cafe, the first year festival will take place February 17th & 18th along Denver's South Broadway/Baker district.
DON'T PANIC is a two day celebration of Colorado's best punk rock. Our mission is to showcase the best and the brightest punk, garage and hardcore that Colorado have to offer- while inviting some of our favorite bands from all over the country! This isn't a "for profit" festival, we're throwing a party with some of our favorite bands and people. It was inspired by small community driven festivals such as THE FEST, Awesome Fest, Death To False Hope, The UMS & 71-Grind!
The name of the festival comes from festival founder, "Dammit" Damian Burford's favorite book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy. (He is also host of the Mostly Harmless Podcast, which is also a reference to the book.) We are living in what feels like turbulent times, this is a festival about inclusion and bringing people together. The world might be a scary place, but DON'T PANIC. We can come together and together we can conquer the world.
From Damian Burford: "I was at THE FEST in Gainesville. I had spent the morning drinking waaaaay too much coffee in the hotel lobby. THE FEST was always such a great festival and a great time. I didn't want it to end. I was chatting with Scotty Sandwhich, the founder of Death To False Hope records and a fellow festival producer, when he told me to "go for it." His enthusiasm mixed with a healthy dose of caffeine and allergy medicine, I made the call to Vinnie at 3 Kings and this little idea became a reality."
"We're starting off small this year, focusing on our favorite Colorado bands. If all goes well and we don't end up losing our butts on this festival, look for next year's fest to grow."
