From 12:00PM to n/a

Audiofeed at Champaign County Fairgrounds

From n/a to n/a

Audiofeed Festival is music, arts, and community. Music and Art is the center of what we tangibly “do”.  Since our founding in 2013, we’ve hosted over 300 bands, screened movies, explored performance and visual art, and created space for our audience to share their music and art.  The festival typically runs over the week and weekend leading into the 4th of July. Our goal is to create an environment where unconditional love is nurtured, encouraged, and shared without regard for appearance, religious belief, race, societal status, or any other thing that separates us from each other in the world at large.  We believe that the perfect example of that Love was expressed through Jesus Christ and we do our best in fitful and imperfect ways to follow His example.   Exploration, questioning, doubts, fears, hopes, joys… all are welcomed and encouraged. Ultimately we’re people who want to support each other and experience great music and art with others who feel the same way.
