How can I go?  Donate $40 via Paypal to to get on the donor list. Donors get into all 4 events. Donations (minus modest expenses) and ALL raffle proceeds will be split 50/50 between Test Positive Aware Network and A Long Walk Home.  Use the “send to a friend’ option as it’s a charity donation and John doesn’t need to pay fees.

Can I donate without PayPal?  Sure, send an email to and we’ll work it out.

Who’s playing this year?  Apart from a few surprises, donors are going to make the call this year.  Bands are already submitting their names and links to music, and people who have donated will do a ranked choice vote for their favorites after submissions are closed April 5th.  We’ll contact bands by votes and the lineup will take shape as they confirm that they can play.
