Update #4

We Did It!

Comment

Many Many Millions of thanks to all of you, backers of Bent Festival 2011!  Your support is a strong statement, demonstrating to the Circuit Bending and DIY/Experimental Electronics Arts community just how important their work is.  We hope that you're able to attend the festival so that we can share our thanks with you in person.  In the event that the distance is too great, we'll be using updates here to let you know all the great things that are taking place, but know that you'll be missed.

For all of you who selected rewards, I'll be sending out surveys to gather all the pertinent information (t-shirt style/size, address, Bent DVD year, etc.)  In two weeks, these rewards will start shipping!

Thank you!

Phil Stearns
