DIO Fest 2014 – Santa Cruz Mountains (Camp Krem)

DIO Fest (aka Do-it-Ourselves Fest) is a music festival put together by a small group of people hell-bent on taking the corporate out of conventional music festivals. The whole event is a fundraiser to raise money for the Music Enrichment Program at Camp Krem. Just a little history, Camp Krem is the place that DIO Fest calls home –it’s also a non-profit outdoor facility with a 50+ year history of providing people with Special Needs a full program of recreation, education and adventure.  The 3-day camping/music festival event, which is modestly priced at $99, is donating 100% of the profits to the program. Ya heard me right.

So what did DIO Fest entail?

  • Whole lot of local musicians completely blowing people’s mind with their epic talent
  • Friends and friends and friends
  • Camping in the Santa Cruz Redwood Mountains overlooking acres of forest
  • A crowd with less than 500 people

Take me back to DIO…
