When we received a phone call from Jon LaBeaud in January 2013 about throwing a music festival at Camp Krem, we wrote it off as totally crazy.
Three months later there we were, in the midst of the first DIO Fest, running around like chickens with our heads cut off. Over 20 artists and 300 other folks creating something seriously special. While we were simply trying to survive that first event, something bigger was happening... something that only came to be because of the community that attended. We're thankful for that first year, and every year since... the bands, the friends we've made, the all-time pool parties, the late night jams and beyond.
2015 was particularly awesome - DIO Fest III, shows at Henry Miller Library, live recording sessions, and more. We established Do It Ourselves as not just a music festival, but an opportunity to create unique experiences and expression on our own terms. So join us in 2016, and let's see where this experiment leads us...
Peace and chicken grease,
The DIO Family
