Candace, I'll probably have it in either a nightclub venue or large community hall space.. I have experience with organising all ages gigs and events for children, but this will be my first time running an event where i need to co-ordinate lots of different people doing different activities at the same time and not just bands.. also, how do i attract zinesters to come along and set up a table? What makes a zine fair/workshop successful/unsuccessful/exciting/boring? What are the differences between organising a DIY/zine fest and a regular gig?

hey loulou that looks really interesting- depending on where you have it, if it's in a public space/park you'll likely require a permit from whichever council you're holding it in (which you'll need to get a move on right away). But that's just off the top of my head as a main issue that comes up - what in particular did you need tips about?

I have just started organising my first zine related event.. a DIY festival of workshops, discussions, hopefully a zine/craft fair and some bands.. to be held in Melbourne, Australia.. could do with some tips from those that are more experienced! http://community.livejournal.com/diydiymydarling/

we (me and four others) just organised a zinefest in brighton uk which went really really well! we actually planned it through a combination of using the brighton group here at wemakezines and face2face meetings. it was a two day extravanganza with workshops, a gig, the zine fayre and candyfloss.

sparks gave us free drinks for the shows we had (3 nights of concerts). they did not have any part in the actual zine fest. they didn't give us any money or ask for any publicity. i contacted them and they gave us 4 cases to hand out to anyone that was 21+ and wanted one. it was a big draw for many show attendees.

It's funny, last year Sparks (the energy drink/malt beverage that was just taken off the market) seemed to sponsor some events at the Milwaukee Zine Fest.

Haha. Maybe we should be like the WarpedTour and let the United States Marine Corps table???? Any takers?

Hahahahahaha! Fuck society.

Hey Nicole (Introvert, not Anne) wanna tell the class about the hilarious-ness of a car company offering to sponsor the Richmond Zine fest? That is a weird zine fest issue I had never heard of!
