About Vertigo

Origins

Vertigo has its roots in the youth group of South 11th and Willis, a small church in Abilene, TX. The original idea was to stand in a public place for a given time in order to vocalize and support your beliefs, and to raise money for a hurricane relief trip in Bayou La Batre, AL.

However, the idea has branched out over time. From a corner in a mall, to citywide, to statewide, to nation-wide and further! So far, the event has spread to cities outside of Texas, and even outside of the United States.

Organization

One of the many amazing things about this event is that it is completely organized by youth and college students! Like the original event in 2008, Vertigo 2009 will be passing all donations to a cause. This year, all contributions will be going to Sam's Place.

Bands and speakers have been invited to join the event; they will be connected to other Vertigo locations through a live video stream.
