What is Manifest?

What kind of music is it?

A wild variety of genres but wholly music made by people who live life on their own terms. There is a strong, underlying, independent, and indomitable spirit of punk present in all the bands playing Manifest, whether we'd consider them rock, country, hardcore, electronic, you name it.

What is a "safe space" and why don't you allow bigotry at this festival?
