Start the cash counter…
Just like Mike Eavis before us we’re starting out with the purest intentions and are hoping to secure enough funding to hold a premier music and arts festival that should (hopefully) net us a whole lot of money in the long term.
That’s right, we’re playing the long term strategy here!
We understand for many that the concept of our festival must be quite confusing, so we thought the best thing to do would be to lay out our vision for our festival, offer up our USPs and highlight just exactly why you should shower us in bills (£$€s all accepted) to make it a reality.
The Honiton Festival will be a premier British arts festival – a week long celebration of everything that makes being British fantastic.
So Why The Name?
Despite what you might think, the Honiton Festival will not take place in Honiton. We’ve not been to Honiton before, we’re not from there and the festival will not in anyway be associated with this particular town in Devon. We just like the sound of the name – hope that clears up any confusion!
Will There Be Camping?
That’s the kind of practical question that we’re really not ready to answer yet! We’d much prefer to think about ‘logistics’ and other such ‘crucial’ bits of information later so that we can focus on what matters: money *ahem* we mean MUSIC.
So Who Will Be Playing?
As we’re only just starting out we’re not expecting big stars like Cerys Matthews or Gabrielle to play, but we have already secured a number of totally real ground-breaking artists that are so hip that no one has ever heard of them. These artists have been creating and recording in privacy so you can guarantee they’ll sound like nothing you’ve ever heard before.
Are You Kidding Is This A Joke?
Absolutely not. Definitely, definitely not. Who would go to this much time and effort? Who would do that? We can guarantee that this festival has been set up with the purest of intentions, just like Mike Eavis before us, we want to make a music festival that makes us loads of money. Why would we joke about our future fortune?
So Why Not Start Smaller?
We’ve toyed with the idea of holding a one-off show or something like that, but we’re worried that that won’t make us enough money.
Our hope is to build the kind of hype and excitement that would usually surround a new Sonique release or a Gerri Halliwell mixtape.
The excellent Babbacome Model Village is just 38.8 miles away from Honiton which is, once again, NOTHING to do with this festival.
When Is This Festival Going To Happen?
It happens when YOU want it to happen. Spread the word, build up momentum, start a band, make up a name, send it to us, you could be on the bill, you could be playing on our main stage, you could be the next Sinead O’Connor! The next Rachel Platten! Do it! Do it today! Be the future!
