Preserving the Future of Noisily Festival
Dear Noisily Family,
As you will most likely know, Noisily has now officially been saved from the clutches of Covid by the gargantuan and heroic efforts of our community, and the core team who hold the festival so close to their hearts.
We have managed to raise £120,253 of our £150,000 target, which after the rewards from the GoFundMe campaign have been deducted, leaves around £115,000.
As you can see this still leaves a substantial hole in our finances, however we knew if we got close enough by the Noisily weekend (we begin planning for next year’s event the week after the festival closes), we simply had to find a way to make it happen.
As a result we have taken a “Bounceback Loan” from the government to fill the hole as we need to repay immediate debts, which still leaves us in a fragile financial position moving into 2021.
We’re used to counting the pennies at Noisily, and will still dedicate ourselves to delivering the incredible event we have done for the best part of a decade, however moving forward with this debt means we are all going to be stretched and working harder than ever.
With this in mind, we have come up with a few ways you can continue to help us get closer to our target and ensure the security of Noisily’s future.
They are as follows:
1 A “Because I Can Ticket” will be available to buy when our ticket sales open, this is intended for those who feel able to afford a more expensive ticket to Noisily, and the excess will go towards the total.
2 Buying your tickets and car passes as early as you can. This will aid our immediate cash flow. PLEASE NOTE, if you buy your tickets before January 2021 we benefit from the VAT discount in place, this means we only pay 5%, and that is a HUGE difference.
3 Buying merchandise including T-shirts when they come out.
4 Donating to our GoFundMe page which we will keep open for the next couple of months.
5 Buying historical pictures of you and your friends at Noisily, which will be available next week for the years between 2016 to 2019. A small markup will be added to the print costs and this will go towards the total.
Once again we are in awe of the support we have received, and will do our very best to keep the Noisily dream alive for many years to come.
With Love and Gratitude,
The Noisily Team
