“HELP FLAG PROMOTIONS SURVIVE THE LIVE MUSIC SHUTDOWN!”
Since 1991 Flag Promotions from very humble beginnings grew to become the UK’s premier Alternative Scene’s promotion Company catering specifically for the dark alternative scene, encompassing Post-Punk, Gothic, Industrial, EBM and Electronic music. Championing the careers of many of the your favourite artists including Mesh, John Foxx, Gary Numan, Clan Of Xymox, Front 242, Toyah, Covenant, VNV Nation, Combichrist, KMFDM, Aesthetic Perfection, Aurelio Voltaire, Gene Loves Jezebel, Balaam & The Angel, to name just a few. Even before the Government announced the lockdown Flag Promotions called a halt to our up coming events for safety reasons and since March we have had no income due to no events being able to go ahead. Six months down the line and it seems we are still no closer to seeing live music returning anytime soon!
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
Friends have suggested we set up this Crowdfunder in order to raise funds and to help Flag Promotions survive the pandemic lockdown - leaving us in a fit state to pick up from where we left off. We are asking those of you who have supported and enjoyed our shows in the past to donate something to our fund, even the price of a ticket to keep us afloat and ensure we can keep going and continue to support our bands and entertain you all into the next decade! Without gig income, Flag Promotions are running up increasingly large debts on a daily basis which currently stand at £25,000 at the time of writing this. With no way of generating income without Live shows we are facing the very real possibility of closing down the company. The danger of this happening is now not only very real, but terrifyingly close. We love doing what we do and hope we can continue in the future. With your help and some luck in the shape of this pandemic eventually buggering off, we shall all overcome this and get back to putting on some great shows again.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
We know it’s been a very difficult time for everyone this last six months and we’d like to wish everyone that has supported us over the years good health and look forward to seeing you all again for more awesome nights out and good times, we like you, know how important music is to all our lives, so thanks for all your support to us and the bands and Stay Safe and see you all on the other side!
