We all make a festival

Virtually Folkeast was a celebration of  artists and technicians doing what they do best!  A live concert in front of an audience .

The infrastructure / technical suppliers and the crew we have worked with over the years came together to make this bit of magic happen.

By charging for our pitches for the Live event we were able to guarantee the same small fee to everyone taking part, artists and crew alike.

Your donations to the Crowdfunder Fund  will be shared equally between all those involved and provide more support during these challenging times.

The festival industry supports a unique and varied workforce, suppliers, stall holders, artists, technicians, production managers, promoters, marketing and PR, agents, designers and a myriad of volunteers.

COVID-19 has affected so many and for some in the events and festival industry, there are limited opportunities for diversification. The success of on line events has been growing and, although greatly welcomed, they can only provide work and support for a small fraction of those individuals and businesses involved in putting on a live event. The tip of the iceberg.

Together we all make festivals happen.

Thank you to all those involved in  making #VirtuallyFolkEast – the LIVE event
