Hello Music Lovers around the world!
I haven’t updated my blog in a while..a lot has happened since I moved to Prescott, AZ a year ago. I won’t go into all of that, but I did want to send you all a link about this incredible Music Festival I have been involved with now for over 2 years, called THE FESTIVAL.
In 2010, I answered a request on MySpace (yes, MySpace!!) for applications for musicians to perform at a Music Festival in Austria. I submitted my CD, a cover letter, press release, etc., etc. and was accepted into the Festival. Unfortunately, the Festival didn’t happen in Austria, that year, but instead, I was lucky enough to become a part of the festival’s Production Team, which was moving the venue to Holland, since the Festival became too big for the area in Austria where this was going to take place.
Since that time, the Festival was re-named THE FESTIVAL, since it is the ONLY musical festival of it’s kind…a multi-genre world music festival that will last 7 days! And I became a part of a Production Team from all over the world who skyped with each other every week to make this happen. I have been doing this now for 2 years, and I feel like I know these folks really well from Austria, Holland, Canada and Northern Ireland!
We are now at the stage where we have secured the venue for the event, the Assen TT Motor Raceway in Assen, Holland for August 2014, and we are starting to look for sponsors and funds to make this happen.
I know nowadays, we get hit with a lot of requests for money, and I don’t know about you, but there are so many things I want to give to that I just can’t, but if you are in a position to do so, THE FESTIVAL has put together an Indiegogo Campaign to get the word out about this incredible festival, and we would like your help keeping the Team going so this can happen next summer. It was my job to put the Indiegogo page together, and I even made a short video including all the Team Members which was a lot of fun to do! One of the members, Rene Smit, was in Spain on Holiday (!) and his clip was done on the beach on a phone!
Here’s the link to the Indiegogo Campaign which runs through September 15, 2013:
Please send this on to folks you know who would be interested in contributing to this campaign and/or attending this Event. I know I’m excited to be going to Assen next year….hope to see you there!!!
Many thanks for your support!
Blessings to you all,
