We’ve made our first goal. Which means we’re taking Fall Out Festival multi-venue!
Thanks to everyone for your continued support. But please don’t stop now, as we want to do so much more. The more funding we get for the festival, the more we can do and the better the bands that we can book, so please keep spreading the word and pledging where you can.
Lets take Fall Out Festival further together!
In August 2014, promoters, bands, events organisers, labels, bars & fans alike pulled together to organise a make-shift "fall-out" festival that surpassed everyone's expectations, as a slew of bands we know and love descended on London to play a series of gigs in intimate spaces. We want it all to happen again. That’s where you come in.
We started out with a simple manifesto: What happens depends entirely on the tickets we sell. We are the fans trying to do something for the fans – If only 8 people buy tickets, it’s a table booked in a restaurant. If 8,000 people buy tickets we have a citywide movement and a budget to deliver an incredible weekend.
We have already made the ticket sales to be able to stage an all day, one-venue event. But we want to be able to do so much more. If we make our first target on this campaign we'll be off the ground in making that happen. We have a number of venues and DIY promoters lined up that want to be involved. All we need is for the fans to buy tickets and as numbers grow, we will confirm and announce them. This is an event of infinite possibilities.
We won’t be booking anything until the people decide they want it to happen. This will be a joint effort between promoters and fans.
We want this to be a weekend long, multi-venue event. We want to put on the bands you want, in spaces you’ll love. Some you’ll have seen, some you may not have, and all are in close proximity to make seeing as many of those bands as possible, possible.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge to the project is the planning, programming and executing of a multi-day, multi-venue event. We do have a number of established DIY promoters and venues interested in being involved, which make the whole plan possible. These will be announced as the project grows and we know what interest and ticket sales dictate the event can be.
This is obviously an interesting business model. We want it to grow as organically as possible. If this campaign reaches its initial goal of £1000 we know what possibilities that budget opens us to. If the campaign makes £10000 then we have a citywide movement and a budget to deliver an incredible weekend.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
