In addition to music, the set agenda connects DIY-minded artists and activists by also including skillshare workshops like "Eco-Feminism & Connecting the Dots of Climate Change," "Fix-a-Flat," and "Know Your Rights Training," as well as a Really Really Free market. The Lucy Parsons Center, Papercut Zine Library, Commonwheels Bicycle Co-Op, and other groups will be tabling.

Despite the seemingly singular implication of "do it yourself," Saturday's event aims to embrace togetherness. "We can't really rely on too many folks to do certain things for us," says Rachel Leone, another active festival organizer, who covers Boston's DIY scene in her zine High Five. "We have to learn how to do it ourselves and especially, do it together."
