More bands announced for world's first crowd-funded and crowd-led alternative festival
Having launched phase two of their crowd-funding via Kickstarter on Monday 4th March 2013, Alt Fest organisers are proud to announce that the £30,000 initial target was smashed within six days and with 22 days still left on the official campaign. In accordance with Kickstarter's terms and conditions, pledgers do not have the money taken from them until the total has been reached but projects can continue to raise money until the completed term of the campaign even after reaching the target amount. The Alt Fest team hopes to reach at least £50,000 before completing phase two. Announced exclusively to backers last week, Alt Fest has added a further six bands to the line-up as a teaser of what's to come. Breed 77, Collapse, Seven Deadly, Zeromancer, Skeletal Family and KMFDM have all been announced alongside the 30+ bands already revealed and cementing Alt Fest's position as the most exciting new festival in the calendar. Alt Fest takes place from 15-17 August 2014 at the beautiful Boughton Hall in Kettering, Northamptonshire and will be the UK's first truly major outdoor festival celebrating alternative culture, art, music and lifestyles.
