Currently, the Fest is calling for acts, with music and stand up comedy slots already filled, but any other type of performance, sketch, improv or theatre.

YIPPIE FEST began in 2017 as an event that continued the performance tradition of the former Abbie Hoffman Died for Our Sins Festival (1989-2016). YIPPIE FEST 2022 comes together for the first time since the pre-pandemic 2019 fest, and kept the spirit of the Fest alive by broadcasting the 2020 and 2021 festivals online.
