DON'T PANIC is a two day celebration of Colorado's best punk rock.

Don't Panic Fest is a Not For Profit festival who's mission is to showcase the best and the brightest punk, garage and hardcore that Colorado have to offer, while inviting some of our favorite bands from all over the country! This isn't a "for profit" festival, we're throwing a party with some of our favorite bands and people.  It was inspired by small community driven festivals such as THE FEST, Awesome Fest, Death To False Hope, The UMS & 71Grind.  


Don't Panic is a collaboration between "Dammit" Damian Burford of Mostly Harmless Podcast and Airwolf PR, Vinnie Cheapfrom 3 Kings Tavern, Jim Norris from Mutiny Information Cafe & Curtis Wallach of Hi-Dive.


Don't Panic was taken from Damian's favorite book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy. We are living in what feels like turbulent times, this is a festival about inclusion and bringing people together. The world might be a scary place, but DON'T PANIC. We can come together and together we can conquer the world. 

From Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: 
"In many of the more relaxed civilizations on the Outer Eastern Rim of the Galaxy, the Hitchhiker's Guide has already supplanted the great Encyclopaedia Galactica as the standard repository of all knowledge and wisdom, for though it has many omissions and contains much that is apocryphal, or at least wildly inaccurate, it scores over the older, more pedestrian work in two important respects.
First, it is slightly cheaper; and secondly it has the words DON'T PANIC inscribed in large friendly letters on its cover."

Can my band play?

Our line up filled up QUICK. There are sooooo many great bands we unable to ask to play this little festival. Unfortunately, our line up is just about complete! We may have more bands to announce, but right now our line up is complete!

We will often tell you the best way for your band to book shows, is to GO TO SHOWS. This is how we booked DPF. We just looked around at who we saw around us, who is an active part of the community and we see out and about at ALL the shows! 

Who did the poster art?

This year's poster art was created by Denver's Matt Allison! The poster art is based on the half assed idea to name Don't Panic Fest 2 after the sequel to the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film Series, Secret of the Ooze!
