Come one, come all to the 6th Annual Mixtape Swap on Saturday, December 27! Zine readings, live music, snackies, and, of course, a MIXTAPE SWAP. All the bands and readers and details you could possibly want are on the Facebook event, so check it out! It’s $5 at the door and proceeds help keep the L.A. Zine Fest free.
Over 350 of you applied for tables at L.A. Zine Fest 2015. You did your work; now we’ve got some to do. We’ll be looking through your apps veeeeery carefully over the coming weeks and we will be responding to everyone as soon as we possibly can. Thanks to everyone who applied, and to those who totally forgot that applications were this week, it’s cool: we hope to see you there, trading your work!
As always, we appreciate everyone’s support of and interest in the Zine Fest, especially this year.
Oh man, the last several months have been a roller coaster. We had a venue, we lost our venue, we looked for a new venue, and now we’ve finally got one and it’s a really, really good space! L.A. Zine Fest 2015 will be taking place on Sunday, February 15 from 11 am to 5 pm in Glassell Park. As we’d mentioned a little over a week ago, applications will be going up on December 1, so get PUMPED.
Thanks so much for your patience as we get this Fest together, everybody. We’re happy and excited to announce that applications will be going up online on *DECEMBER 1*!! Of course, live links will be posted on all out social media, so even if you forget, it’ll be hard to miss–but still. It’ good to know what’s on the way.
More info about the event (dates, times, locations, etc.) will follow shortly!!
This weekend is the free music festival Echo Park Rising, and the Echo Chamber Creative Headquarters has events AND the LA Zine Fest zine library–usually a traveling library that’s found its first-ever brick-and-mortar home at the artspace. The Echo Chamber will be hosting awesome workshops and will have a window display of animatronic cats during the festival. More information on what’s happening in the Chamber during Echo Park Rising is here. Hope to see you in the library!
Celebrate California Bookstore Day with LA Zine Fest at Skylight Books! The event is free and it’ll be a chance to ask questions of other zinesters in an environment that is specifically for question-asking (so you don’t have to feel shy!) Also, just come by to meet some other zinemakers or check out the ama-ZINE zine selection at Skylight’s Annex. We’ll see you there!
