Means to an End… an idea

WELCOME… to the MEANS TO AN END… Festival Blog

INTRO

With this Blog there are plans to develop the pages over time to highight why MEANS TO AN END… (MTAE) was started, to raise ideas about the ideology behind the Fest and to hopefully provoke further thought and inspire future action.

For updated news and reviews the most active pages will be in the MTAE News, MTAE Friends and another section not constructed yet so please check these pages out. This page will primarily remain the same. By clicking on the different HEADINGS, you can find your way around and read about the ideas behind MTAE. Over time more writing will be added but for now hopefully what is here now will act as a good starting point and resource for those who wish to use it.

WHAT IS ‘MEANS TO AN END…’?

MTAE… DIY Punk Hardcore Festival occurs annually at the mighty 1in12 Club in the U.K. in the West Yorkshire city of Bradford in mid-October. The 1in12 Club is a self-run, autonomous social centre that has been in existence now for over 30 years and has been, and continues to be, home to many, many great bands, gigs and social activities.
