The Hands Off Project is an independent organisation expressing contemporary punk through various conceptual utterances.

One year ago The Hands Off Project launched their T.H.O.P. event series with five acts on two stages in the VERA main hall. A season later T.H.O.P. 05 marks the one year anniversary with another five-act-festival-on-two-stages setup. Audrey has not been fired yet and will guide you through all. of. it.
