THE FEST also finds attendees and bands traveling to Florida from all over the world. Last year 82% of ticket sales came from outside the state of Florida and 21% were non-US residents.

FEST has had close affiliations and support from No Idea Records, Punknews.org, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Alternative Prss, Commonwealth Press, Orange Amplifiers, SJC Drums, and a many of independent record labels and independent fanzines and companies that make up our musical landscape.
