HELP US KEEP MOSTLY JAZZ FUNK & SOUL ALIVE
WHY ARE WE CROWDFUNDING & WHAT WILL THE MONEY RAISED BE SPENT ON
It has been over 10 years since Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul started out as a small 2 day event for 1,000 people in the heart of Birmingham. It has now grown into THE summer party get together for thousands of people from across the UK & beyond.
Sadly, due to the coronavirus outbreak, there will be no Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul Festival in 2020. This means we have lost a year's worth of revenue as well as a whole host of unrecoupable costs already spent on the 2020 event. In short, it has left a huge financial hole for the festival.
As it stands there hasn't been much financial support for UK Festivals, though we’re very greatful for the government backed loans these still need to be repaid. This is a huge burden for an independent company in a very challenging sector.
Therefore, we are turning to our Community to help us secure the future of Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul by pledging to our Crowdfunder.
We’ve put together some very special rewards, have a look here….

We are quite excited by the pledge rewards that we are offering. From simple donations to the chance to win life time tickets to exclusive t-shirts & experiences to helping us launch a Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul club. There are plenty of cool rewards for you to pick up.

Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul Takeover Ticket
In 2020, we had planned to launch our takeover series. In short, we plan to takeover venues in Birmingham for a Saturday day & night providing a killer line up of Jazz, Funk & Soul based artists. These plans, alongside the festival itself, were naturally shelved for 2020. However, we have teamed up with Norton's (soon to be our favourite venue in the city centre) for a series of takeovers in 2021. You can pick up tickets now for the first 2 takeovers. 3rd April 2021 (Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul Classic) & 29th May 2021 (Hip Hop inspired). We are looking forward to bringing the Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul Club to Birmingham!
