We're raising money to put on a music festival in Brooklyn at the end of the summer that will feature established and emerging female artists. Our lineup will include some awesome rap, indie, pop, and singer/songwriter performers. The money we earn on Kickstarter will help us pay the artists, venue, and promotion cost, and allow us to give back to organizations involved in helping the next generation of women musicians and songwriters. We want to put on an incredible event and listen to some great music, but we need your help! Check out our incentives: $25 gets you two tickets to the show!
We will be donating a substantial portion of the proceeds to these two amazing organizations:
WILLIE MAE ROCK CAMP FOR GIRLS
Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls is a non-profit music and mentoring program that empowers girls and women through music education and activities that foster self-respect, leadership skills, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration.
GIRLS WRITE NOW
Girls Write Now provides guidance, support, and opportunities for New York City’s underserved or at-risk high school girls, enabling them to develop their creative, independent voices, explore careers in professional writing, and learn how to make healthy choices in school, career, and life.
Tinderbox Music Festival aims to create more space for women musicians by bringing together and promoting established and emerging female artists. Rooted in the vibrant New York City music scene, Tinderbox fosters community by providing opportunities to perform, collaborate, and connect. Tinderbox donates 100 % of net proceeds to organizations involved in helping the next generation of women musicians.
Hearing that the all-female music festival Lilith Fair was returning in 2010, Alyson Greenfield decided to start “Dear Lilith Fair 2010,” a blog dedicated to trying to get on the tour. Many readers and fellow musicians responded to the blog with excitement, and Alyson soon recognized the existence of a large community of female musicians and their fans who wanted to be part of a women-driven music festival reflecting the current landscape of diverse and emerging musical talent. Alyson then took the initiative to start a new music festival, located in New York City, to showcase female artists -- both up-and-coming local artists as well as more established performers. She brought on J.D. and former singer/songwriter/producer Jennifer Newman and entertainment business affairs maven Alicia Matusheski. Tinderbox was born.
Thank you so much for your support!
