Look Up fest:
A space age mini music fest FOR Mars
Look Up Fest is a curated conceptual mini music festival organized by Look Up Records. For our 3rd Look Up Fest, we’re featuring space age dreamy music from the Pacific Northwest and beyond, paired with a futuristic Martian cause...
WHEN: Sept 7, 2019
ARTIST SUBMISSIONS NOW OPEN
SUPPORT MUSIC ON MARS
There is currently no music on Mars. There are no Martian artist grants. There are no venues, no recording studios, not even a CD player. It’s depressing AF. We want to change that.
A Mix Tape For Astronauts
We’re putting together a mixtape that colonists can take with them when they go to Mars. It’s going to be a long, isolated journey, so we might as well entertain them. The album will be made of songs from musicians that perform at Look Up Fest: Mars.
SEND US YOUR Martian Flag Design
For years, humans have designed potential flags for Mars. They often use Green, Red, and Blue to denote the 3 stages of terraforming the planet. Look Up is opening submissions from the community for their own flag ideas. You can submit your flag idea using the link below this text block. The best ones will be printed and displayed at Look Up Fest: Mars, and the winning design will be made immortal.
Dear NASA AND SpaceX:
The mixtape for astronauts and the winning flag will be mailed to SpaceX, NASA, and other entities proposing Martian travel, along with a message of goodwill:
Hey there. We like what you’re doing. We think its cool. We just want to make sure Martian colonies and other future terraformed human existences are full of art, inspiration, and retain goodwill toward all life. We send you this proposed Martian flag as a symbol of human unity, and this mix tape to play when you’re bored. Let’s keep space safe.
Always looking up,
— Seattle based freaks
