Galesburg

DIY Galesburg
A group of musicians, artists, punks & activists committed to organizing all-ages, donation based, independent events & shows. Galesburg is home to Knox College and is located in Western Illinois near the Iowa border so the town is a perfect in-between spot for bands touring or traveling through the Midwest. The collective can hook bands up with a good place to stay & free meals in the college cafeteria. We host shows at multiple venues & spaces throughout the town, so if you're planning a tour in the Midwest feel free to contact us! We really want to expand and diversify our scene! If interested please give us a few weeks notice. diygalesburg [at] gmail [dot] com
