FESTIVAL OF ACTIVIST STREET BANDS
SAVE THE DATES
October 10 through 12, 2014
a wide variety of events planned
in Somerville, Cambridge, & Boston
FREE AND OPEN TO ALL
Time to mark the calendar for the ninth annual HONK! Festival (http://www.honkfest.org)
This year several new national and international groups will be featured, as well as returning festival favorites, a few who are local and many who come from afar. The performance schedule of participating bands (27 at last count!) will be available soon after Labor Day weekend, and HONK! fans can again look forward to bopping around to rich musical mayhem and jumping right into the spectacularly large "Reclaim the Streets for Horns, Bikes, and Feet" Parade.
But there is also a new development this year. HONK! 2014 will be hosting a "Day of Action" to be held specifically on Friday October 10th. The goal is to set the stage for a targeted weekend long partnership between HONK! bands and local socio-political organizations. For more info. on this new HONK! initiative, visit www.honkfest.org/
ALL HONK! events will take place rain or shine, and will be free, open to all.
As of this writing, a few late summer/early fall activities are in place, for those who would like to get involved from the get go:
HONK! Kickstarter campaign: preliminary details can be found at www.honkfest.org/
HONK! Volunteer Appreciation Pep Rally: tentatively scheduled for the evening of September 7 at Sprout, 339R Summer St. near Davis Square, Somerville (www.thesprouts.org). More information will be available after Labor Day weekend.
