First Timers Fest ’20 | Saturday 2nd Sunday 3rd of May

FTF is a season of workshops followed by a two-day festival where every band plays its first show. FTF is about getting new faces and voices in bands, and doing something about the lack of diversity in the make-up of the DIY music community.

Our 2020 festival will be taking place on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd of May 2020. Visit the Event Page with full details and ticket link (coming very soon!).

First Timers Fest 2020 Workshops

As a direct way of addressing the lack of diversity in the make-up of the DIY music community, our workshops centre people who are disabled (visible or non-visible), LGBTQIA+ folk, people of colour, and women. As well, we are here to support people who have never played in a band before // never played the instrument they’ve always wanted to learn before because of their class, race, gender, mental health, etc.
