2004 the first Clamor Music Festival was held in 32 cities across the
United States featuring over 150 performers with the common goal of
celebrating independent media. Now we're ready to do it again...and we
need your help!
Grab your calendars. The 2006 Clamor Music Festival will take place on
Saturday, October 21st, and will again feature shows all over the country.
Each show will be a dual fundraiser for Clamor and a local social justice/arts/independent
media organization in each hosting city. The festival is based on a few
basic principles we believe all media should follow: accessibility, community
control, and mutual aid. But above all it's just going to be a lot of
Big ups to all of our sponsors for the CMF: Baby Wit, Botanical Earth, Daemon Records, Mpress Records, Off Our Backs, The Progressive, Reasons of the Heart, Seven Stories Press, Snazzygirl, Stickerguy, and Stumptown Printers.
