About

At its heart, the Bubble Music Festival is about music, musicians, and the music community. Born from a desire to support emerging musicians cultivate Madison's already vibrant music scene and the city itself, the Bubble Music Festival 2014 will take place September 11-13 at a variety of venues throughout downtown Madison. More than 100 bands spanning countless music genres have already been confirmed to play the Bubble Music Festival 2014 (including touring acts from all over the country). Go to bubblemusicfestival.com to see the lineup and listen to their tunes!

In short, we want to help people discover new music that excites, inspires and motivates them to join the Midwest music scene.

Generous sponsors, all local Madison businesses, have donated their goods. Madison’s best music venues have offered to host the shows. Local volunteers have created an online presence and word-of-mouth network to help promote the event.  And the musicians are ready to play (without guarantee of monetary compensation for their art, talent, and time).

That’s where you come in. Every penny of the proceeds from this Kickstarter campaign (after material, fulfillment, and production expenses) will go directly to the musicians who participate in the Bubble.

If we hit the goal of $5K, every musician who has been invited to play the Bubble 2014 will be paid an equal portion of the Kickstarter proceeds. There’s no better way to support the music scene in the Midwest than by meeting (and exceeding) our goal!

We’re so excited about the Bubble, and we hope you are, too. With your help, we can make this a Madison institution and grow the music scene in Madison, the Midwest and throughout the country. So come on, music lovers! Get your clicking fingers ready and head to the “Donate” button!

Risks and challenges

Music festivals are a notoriously risky endeavor, which is why we have chosen a sustainable approach for the Bubble. By mediating costs and favoring distribution of rewards over large personal gains, we are confident that the Bubble will grow for years to come. This approach is precisely why it is so important that you show your support and get your festival pass NOW!

Another risk of music festivals is inclement weather, so we chose to hold most of our performances indoors. Still, we are hoping for bright sunny days, because the festival is held at multiple venues and festival goers are encouraged to hop from venue to venue to catch as many bands as they can handle. (We partnered with Madison B-Cycle to facilitate transportation for all you bikers out there).

Finally, accommodating all of those bands can be a challenge. We’ve tapped into enough Madison venues to fit them all, but some are 21+. We would prefer to cater to everyone, but with a festival this size it is impossible. Sorry, kids. We’ve also developed a system to “Boost” the bands you’d like to see so we can get them into larger venues. Our smallest venues can’t accommodate everyone that buys a ticket, so go to bubblemusicfestival.com with your login after you donate to boost your favorite bands. VIP passes guarantee entry to every show.
