About

The facts

Boondocks is incredible. We all came together in 2015, made it happen for the first time and got it started. And it actually happened! You created the most phenomenal weekend. Those who were there at the start will know.  And those who have been there since, won't forget how good it feels.

More facts

When Boondocks first started, on a bit of a whim in 2015, no one had any idea what it would be or what it could become. We all put our faith in it. Pure faith. 

And by raising £30,000 in 30 days, we thought that was enough of an indication that everyone wanted it to happen. And it was! A huge achievement.

But the fact is, that £30k we raised then was only about a third of what it actually cost to put the festival on. While it was so, so worth it (and still is), this year we’re asking for a bit more, so that all the voluntary organisers can get on and produce this stunning little festival again without worrying about re-mortgaging their houses or selling their kidneys.  So, together, we need to pledge £50,000 so we can all enjoy Boondocks 2020, knowing that we were all in from the beginning.

Together ...

is the only way it can possibly ever work. No philanthropists. No government grants. No big sponsors. Boondocks can only go ahead if you do your bit. It only ever started in the first place because you supported it and you bought your tickets early. Way early! And that’s exactly how Boondocks should be.

If you pledge now, the Boondocks crew can do their magic and focus on making 2020 the best ever Boondocks. And, if you look at the rewards, the more friends and family you pull together and bring to Boondocks with you, the cheaper your tickets are. Quite right.

Achieving this total will make the festival even more solid - everything can be planned, booked and secured with absolute confidence. And when we all find ourselves in a field in Malmesbury in July 2020, we’ll all be there, knowing we all made it happen.

And in 2020, we're going to celebrate this by opening The Boondocks Cafe stage on Thursday night, only to Kickstarters.  So, you can come over on the Thursday, pitch your tent and share in a couple of live bands with everyone else who made it happen with you.

What if we don't achieve the total?

Kickstarter is 'all or nothing' so either we achieve the total by mid-November and Boondocks goes ahead in 2020, or we fall short of the total and we leave if for another year.

What about kids and camping tickets?

Only adult tickets are available in this year's Kickstarter. This is to allow you to spread the cost of your Boondocks ticket by pledging now for your adult tickets and then buying your kids and camping tickets when they go on sale in early 2020.  They'll be about the same price as they were last time and, as a Kickstarter, you'll get access to kids and camping tickets for a whole month earlier than everyone else so you can be sure of getting the tickets you need, before they sell out.

When do I pay?

You can pledge for your adult tickets now (as in right now!) and, if we achieve the total together, your card won't be charged until after the campaign finishes towards the end of November.  And if we don't achieve the total, your card won't be charged at all.

So let’s all commit now and make it work. If you, your family and your friends all pledge for your adult tickets now, it absolutely will happen again. You in?

Risks and challenges

We are working once again with the authorities to get an event license for Boondocks. We have support from Wiltshire Council, our friendly landowner and the local residents. The license application will be pretty similar to the one that was granted for the first Boondocks. But it's the council's decision and the festival can't go ahead without this, so it's absolutely key.



In the unlikely event that we have to cancel because we can’t get the license after the Kickstarter campaign has been successful (or for any other reason outside our control) we would still have to have to cover Kickstarter commissions and some other costs incurred at that point so here’s the contingency plan: all pledgers will be given the option to redirect 80% of their pledge into other music related projects in Malmesbury or, if you would rather be refunded, we will refund a minimum of 80% of each pledge, keeping a maximum of 20% to cover the costs we will have incurred up to the time of the refund.



One other thing to bear in mind is that, after this campaign succeeds, your pledge will mean you have bought festival tickets so we have to apply the same terms and conditions that apply to normal tickets. You can view those on the website here: 
http://theboondocksfestival.co.uk/tickets



If this campaign doesn't succeed, it’s easy, we wallow in Brexit misery, you pay nothing and the Boondockers hang up their 2020 capes... but as Neil says, let's not talk about that right now 😊
