What is DIY Conspiracy?


DIY Conspiracy exists to support the international underground network of activism, music and culture.

We started in 2005 as an online journal for the International Do-It-Yourself Punk Community.

Since then, we’ve been operating as an independent website that aims to represent punk rock’s creative and community-based values with a strong political focus. We see DIY punk as an autonomous, ever-evolving-in-its-anti-oppression-ideals, genuine community, which lets us live our lives to the fullest of possibilities.

Over the years, we have published hundreds of hardcore punk reviews, exclusive interviews, premiere streams, DIY punk scene reports, and columns by contributors from all over the globe. We’ve done this all by ourselves, just the few of us and our punk-rock passion.
