Risks and challenges
We do not anticipate any risks to the project, as we are in our fifth year and have successfully completed multiple campaigns. A potential setback would be a small delay of a few weeks in distributing the rewards after we wrap up our festival. If this challenge presents itself, we will notify all backers and continue to keep you informed of our progress!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
