FLUFF 2015

 

On April 23rd, the festival crew commented:

…we are just days before revealing this year’s line-up. so maybe it is a time to recap little bit about FLUFF. it is 3 day festival organised by fairly small group of people for last 15 years in what we believe is hc/ punk way. it is self-founded and that means it is either voluntary or paid by money made from ticket sells, bars or kitchen (no government funds or sponsorships). it is also beneficial to the local animal right organisation. it is open to anybody from hc/ punk scene which in this case means that a big part of the festival is not organised by us, you could became part of the festival and set up your own info tent, party stage or distro as long as you do not sell food or drinks and you do it on proper place and you will be able to do it and it will be free of charge. the only part of the festival is actually paid zone, there is still a lot going on outside paid zone (!) there is the open stage, the place where any incoming band can play their set with the stage and PA provided by us. nobody knows the future but it looks like the FLUFF will be more and more headliner-less festival focused on diversity of stages and performances, where every performing band could be playing your local punk venue or squat. again we will have PSYCH TENT, FLUFFY QUEER NOISES TENT, D.I.S.C.O., 2 FLUFF stages and this year we will add PLAY FAST OR DON’T – festival within a festival!

The band commented:

Ain’t no party like a punk fest party, cause a punk fest party don’t stop, unless there’s cause for a serious debate about issues, and then, of course, we’ll stop and talk things out, because, you know, we aren’t like Poison or something, we actually have scruples and therefore, we really care about the issues…Anyway, this fest is going to rule!!!
