Unfortunately this project was not successful.

We want to bring the Foo Fighters to Cornwall, and show the world what an awesome location Cornwall is to host live music.

Campaign fund-raising has finished

Hello,

Today is the last official day of fund-raising for the Foo Fighters Cornwall project, and we just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has pledged.  We are amazed and delighted that the final total is well over £300,000, more than double our original target!! 

From a fund-raising and awareness perspective this campaign has been a bigger success than we could ever have hoped for.  YOU have proven how much the Foo Fighters are wanted in Cornwall and together we have sent the strongest possible message out to the band and their team to consider a date in Cornwall.  We have also sent a strong message out to artists around the world that the Cornish love live music and that as an audience we are a force to be reckoned with.  We know that there are some major booking agents looking at Cornwall for future gigs - that is VERY exciting and all thanks to the two and a half thousand of you who have pledged. 

We have given ourselves until the end of February 2015 to fix a date with the Foo Fighters, and the date may be in 2015 or 2016.  When we manage to secure a date we will let everyone know the details and you will be given plenty of warning before the pledges are collected.  If for any reason we do not manage to secure a date all pledges will be cancelled and no money collected.

A lot of people have been asking 'what else can we do?' and we would suggest that we just need to keep gentle pressure on the band up, so please Tweet or Facebook them when you get the chance, just to keep Cornwall on their radar.  In the meantime we will be working with their 'people' behind the scenes to try and secure a date and we will update you as soon as there is any further news.

Thank you again for your support!

With lots of love from all at Team Foo.

I have been forwarded a message saying that we would have to pledge again due to restrictions on paypal. Is this correct?? I have tried to contact you through crowdfunder but am unable to?!?!
