We were as surprised as everyone else to read the news that Flor fest, a brand new music festival exclusively showcasing Illinois bands and run by University of Illinois students, is donating their first year's profits to support the programs at The UP Center. We want to thank Edgar Cuevas, flor poetry, and the entire Flor Fest team for thinking of the LGBTQ+ community while devoting themselves to everything else it takes to plan a music festival.

Cuevas originally had the idea for the festival less than three months ago and began designing the festival. He quickly helped recruit over 20 artists and bands from across Illinois to perform.
