// BE PREPARED FOR LOTS OF HIGH FIVES. IT MAY BE WISE TO START TRAINING NOW. OH YEAH, & PLEASE REMEMBER TO CARPOOL //

As you’re probably aware, you’ve stumbled across something sweet here. If you’re a DIO “virgin” just remember the tips in this official Fest Guide, and you’ll be a pro. It’s true, at our festival we do-it-ourselves. We exist so that corporate mega-festivals don’t eventually rule the world, because the person on the stage is not so different from the person in the audience.

We’re a group of people who want to do something awesome, like help support music enrichment for the developmentally disabled at Camp Krem, and have a blast while we’re at it. It’s about music, it’s about people, it’s about positive vibes, it’s about having a good time. Whether you’re a volunteer, an attendee, an artist, a shuttle driver, a supporter or anyone else, ‘you’ are a part of the ‘we’ that is DIO Fest. Thanks for bearing through the mush, stoked to see you in April.
