FED UP FEST is an all ages, annual music festival dedicated to elevating the visibility of radical queer, trans, gender non-conforming, and intersex people in punk and hardcore scenes. It encompasses music, art, and workshops, and actively confronts and challenges the perpetuation of oppression and abuse in these scenes.

We live in a homophobic and transphobic culture that is reflected within punk and hardcore scenes. The FUF collective aims to combat this culture by making punk a site of resistance to systemic oppression. We work to build and strengthen bonds between punk, queer, radical, and activist communities, and aim to center marginalized voices within these communities. We hope that Fed Up Fest creates a space of defiance, empowerment, pogoing, and change.
