WELCOME TO #theDRUMNATION
We are a collective of passionate marketers with a unifying passion for music and creativity.
On Saturday 21st May 2016 something exceptional will take place at a first class music venue in London.
10 incredibly talented music acts from across Sub Saharan Africa are going to unite with UK gig goers to form #theDRUMNATION Festival.
Through raising funding for this event we aim to realise our mission:
- To give at least 4 (hopefully 10) incredibly talented musical acts from across sub Saharan Africa an opportunity to perform at #theDRUMNATION festival in London in May 2016.
- To promote the range and quality of talent and creativity that is in abundance across the continent.
- To contribute towards a change in the negative perception of Africa, its 54 countries and its citizens; to one of positivity.
WHY WE NEED YOUR PLEDGES:
We need to raise a minimum of £40,000 through corporate sponsorship and crowdfunding to bring the selected artists and all of their bands (some of which have 8+ members!) over for #theDRUMNATION Festival on 21st May 2016 in London.
The more money we raise the more artists can come, the bigger the festival and, because this is a not-for-profit project, the better the party. We not going to have any surplus on this project - if on 21st Mat 2016 we have spare money in the coffers it's going to go behind the bar.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You can choose to pledge your support at a number of different levels from individual to corporate basis. Based on this support you will receive benefits tailored to your pledge.
GREAT THINGS ARE POSSIBLE…
