flor fest is a new concept for a festival to unite all of the local DIY/emo bands from the Midwest area for a festival. It will serve as a fun environment for high school and college students to enjoy great music. Majority of the profit will go towards Up Center (community-based organization supporting the LGBTQ+).
We want every fan to feel safe at the festival. flor fest will take safety measures to keep the event safe. Specific questions regarding safety, security, medical, and any others can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have an immediate need while on-site seek out any festival staffer, police, fire, or security.
We have recommend taking a Lyft or Uber for safety purposes. However, the MTD buses will be providing a safe experience as well. We do not recommend driving in group smaller than four people.
Buying your ticket before the show helps us collect the proper analytics on how many people we should expect. For this reason, we will provide lower ticket pricing for those who choose to buy their tickets at least a week before the festival. Updates will be provided on how to do so.
Yes! You can find band merch for any bands that decide to participate in our sales. We will only be taking Venmo and Cash for band merch sales. For festival merch, it is yet to be determined how many t-shirts will be ordered for the festival beforehand :(. We'll keep you all updated! Therefore, it is best to get merch guaranteed through our pre-order bundles. Buy merch early and get a discount on entrance pricing
The festival will be hosted at the Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center (202 S Broadway Ave, Urbana, IL 61801).
Most merch orders will printed out within 3 business days. It will then take 5-7 business days to ship!
Unfornately, we are not going to be able to receive a liquor license for the first year of our festival. However, we won't stop you from bringing booze yourself if you're 21+.
