Fest Forever: Why Gainesville’s annual punk summer retreat will never die
In the final segment of No Sleep ’Til Gainesville, artists, Fest founder Tony Weinbender and festees talk about the expansion and future of the Fest.
“I think the Fest will always stay what it is,” says photographer Paris Visone. “And that’s the best thing about Fest. It’s the same people, we’re just growing older, but I think we’re all still going to love this no matter how old we get. It’s punk, and once you’re a punk, you’re a punk.”
