Organizers of the Lindisfarne Festival plan to raise £150,000 to make sure that the event returns to the region
The organizers of the Lindisfarne Festival have taken to crowd funding to ensure that the event continues to be held in the region. They will launch the event through the crowdfunder platform in September 2017. Organizers are keen to make sure that the 3 day music event at Beal Farm in Northumberland takes place for the fourth time next year. The festival team has planned to raise £150,000 over a 5 week period through a crowd funding campaign. Once this amount is generated, there will be no hindrances in organizing the festival.
As Conleth Maenpaa, the founder of Lindisfarne Festival commented:
“Preparations for next weekend are in full swing and we could not be more excited to welcome everyone to this year’s festival.
“We have been working non-stop all year to make the event something very special and give Northumberland the festival it deserves.
“We have a huge vision for the future but as a truly independent and homegrown festival, we rely heavily on early ticket sales to help us invest, plan and make key decisions about the line-up and other event features.
“Upfront commitment from festival goers and supporters will alleviate uncertainty, allowing us to focus fully on developing the festival further. We have said from day one this festival is for the North East and we want to openly give the region the opportunity to invest in its growth and help to shape and secure its future.”
“It is our mission to give the North East the UK’s best small festival and we hope people will continue to get behind us by coming along to the festival next weekend and supporting our 2018 Crowdfunder campaign.”
