The fact that this festival is in my backyard and in perhaps the world's most stunning outdoor venue, it is important we keep Monolith alive. Please pass the word along and help raise money to keep it going strong. Donate what you can, $1, $5, $10, and if you are a big baller-shot caller hell drop a benjamin. Go here for more information and thank you.
Over the last three years, the Monolith Festival has humbly built a musical mecaa in the form of a 2-day, internationally recognized boutique music festival. From its inception the event has attracted some of the top performers in indie, pop and hip hop culture including Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Mars Volta, Flaming Lips, Kings of Leon, Spoon, Phoenix, The Decemberists, Girl Talk, Method Man, Passion Pit, Chromeo, and more!
After three years of significant growth, the festival experienced financial hardships at the 2009 event, due in large part to inclement weather on opening day. The festival must currently raise $200K dollars in order to continue building and producing the festival.
So far the response has been overwhelming! We are certainly not looking for any handouts but have received a number of requests on how fans could donate a few bucks to help support the cause. Thanks to the nice folks at Kickstarter.com, here we are.
We set our initial goal at $38,000 which would be a tremendous start to helping us get over some immediate humps.
Thank you so much! If you are interested in making a larger contribution in exchange for ownership in the event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
