Please Support Q101, Pledge $1...you only pay if we raise $300 K! Make sure you watch the VIDEO http://www.Q101Jamboree.com

WHO IS BEHIND Q101?

Mike Noonan and Matt Dubiel recently saved Q101 from the radio dumpster. Merlin Media vowed to flip the radio station that was Q101 to an FM News format, prior to their purchase of 101.1 in the summer of 2011.

Matt's first radio paycheck came from Q101 and Mike spent nearly a decade as a rock jock at WLUP.  The Q101 guys have worked on major events in Chicago like Ribfest, Eyes To The Skies, Taste of Chicago, Loopfest, and Lollapalooza and have promised to pool their contacts, resources and funds to make Jamboree 2012 a massive success! 

The guys met while working together at 96.7 Will Rock, where they were both instrumental in the station's dominance (after the fall of Rock 103.5). 

Besides their successes in programming, sales and events, Matt & Mike have exploded the digital reach of Q101 and are excited to PARTY with YOU at Jamboree 2012!

Join the fight to keep Q101 alive and prove independent alternatives can thrive with out big corporate media!

Thank you for your overwhelming support to Q101 since 1992!  It's been 20 years and with YOUR help, we will celebrate in style at Jamboree 2012!

PLEDGE TO BRING JAMBOREE 2012 TO LIFE:

The dates are penciled in for September 1st and 2nd!

We've met with various promoters and event planners and we have a tentative budget in place.  Now it's up to YOU and the fans of Q101 to bring Jamboree to life!

If you help us meet the goal to kickstart Jamboree 2012, it's on.  If we do not reach the goal no one pays a dime and the event is "off".

What bands are playing?  When is the event?  Where is Jamboree going to be?  Why $299,000?

The answers all depend on getting the pledges needed.  The minute this project is funded we will pick a venue (we have narrowed it down to 3), then we will finalize the date (we're leaning toward labor day weekend), and THEN offer letters go out to all the bands and entertainers.

As a  "backer" YOU will be updated every step of the way.  We will make special videos and updates for YOU before anyone else.

While we want the Foo Fighters, we are not and can not promise or guarantee any acts or bands, YET.  We will do everything possible to make Jamboree the best it has ever been, in every way.

If you want to be part of something special, fun and adventurous...pledge to support Jamboree 2012.  We'll celebrate together!

Pledge what you can.

Share this page with everyone you know.  When we make Jamboree 2012 a success, our next stop is taking back the radio dial!  Viva Q101!

FAQ

  • All seating is general admission, but there will be select VIP areas. The general public will not have access to select areas. As a VIP, you will have special access to a designated VIP area.

  • Matt wants The Foo Fighters. Mike wants the Smashing Pumpkins. Both those bands are well into the 6 figure mark. so the bands are TBD. As soon as this Kickstarter is successful, we will send out a quick survey to all the backers to see who YOU like the most. Then offer letters to various entertainers will immediately follow. All bands and entertainers will be announced to "Backers" first. As a backer, you will have the inside track on all Jamboree 2012 announcements FIRST.

  • We have narrowed it down to 6 possible locations...EACH is equally exciting. NONE of the locations have played host to Jamboree EVER before. All locations are within "Chicagoland". Backers will get FIRST notice when the final destination is chosen! You will LOVE it.

  • As budgeted, the total event expense is $351,700.00. This includes $150,000 for talent. Our goal is to have the BEST talent we can afford. Once we meet the $299,000 mark on Kickstarter, we're confident on the additional sales and sponsorship revenue to support the event and at least cover expenses. Kickstarter also charges a service fee as well as credit card processing fees. This means out of the $299,000 we will still have to risk $20,000 of our own money (or more) to make this event happen. If YOU back this and we meet our goal WE ARE ALL IN!
