Editor’s Note: Yes, the poster above says “2 Days Away!” but this actually starts tomorrow!
It’s that time again for Long Island’s own Mixtape Festival on August 15th and 16th! Whether you like progressive metal, hardcore, pop punk, emo, indie, etc, this 2 day festival is the festival for you! Between some of the best Long Island locals and national acts, this is a festival not to be missed. Click here for single day tickets and 2 day/VIP passes (all of which are running low!). Read on to hear a word about the ticket sales from Today’s Mixtape Festival.
“A portion of this year’s festival ticket sales will go towards The Safe Center, Nassau County’s only comprehensive victims’ services agency, offering confidential and cost-free services to victims of child abuse, domestic and dating violence, rape and sexual assault, and human trafficking.”
“The Safe Center is an important resource for sexual abuse victims on Long Island. This relates directly to issues in the punk rock and hardcore communities, issues that are usually ignored instead of being made aware of, discussed, and resolved,” shares festival founder Jake Zimmerman. “As a community and as decent human beings, we cannot stand by and let these victims’ voices go unheard.”
For more Info, head on over to their website here. Please help support this important cause by coming down to the show!Here’s the breakdown of both days:
