FMLY Fest coming to Brooklyn this week (3-day ‘DIT’ festival)
FMLY FEST 2k12 is the fourth annual installment of our planet’s biggest, wildest, friendliest D.I.T. (do-it-together) music and arts festival. After three “now legendary” (Decoder Magazine), “unmissable” (LA Times) winters in Los Angeles FMLY FEST has taken summer buds to Brooklyn to indulge our East Coast tropical fantasies. From June 21 – 23 we open our front doors and invite you into our bedrooms, basements, rooftops, and backyards to celebrate a shared intimate insanity. For these three days we hope to become involved in a possibility of what life could be like if we nurture creative impulse, collaborative desires, and allow for each and every moment to welcome the festivity of a more shared experience. We are not renting out any fancy social spaces or opening our embraces to shallow waters of non-committal diy-ism, but taking this opportunity to directly engage with our immediate community of Bushwick and introduce our fam throughout the world to our inspiring neighbors. This summer, we welcome you home.
The fourth annual FMLY Fest, which usually takes place in LA, is coming to Bushwick, Brooklyn this week from June 21 – 23 across multiple venues including Shea Stadium, 13 Thames, McKibben Park, and Bohemian Grove.
