Recently the promotion crew of NEF (Nicole and Tanisha) asked Edmonton promoters to throw some fundraising shows for us so we can make NEF 2016 happen for you all.
You will all see a few of these fundraisers popping up in the next few weeks! We have asked these shows avoid booking W/Q/T/NB bands, here a little quote we sent out:
“the possibility of help from promoters like yourselves aiding NEF in fundraising efforts. The ways in which we’ve been discussing amongst our organizers pertain mostly to the idea of having shows put on as fundraisers for our events. An important point that has been brought up is that if any of these shows were to be put on, we would like non-w/q/t bands to be on the bills. We have noticed over the past year that w/q/t bands, many from NEF, have a tendency to be tokenized by largely only being booked for fundraising/benefit shows, therefore often going unpaid. That problem does not arise nearly as frequently for non-w/q/t bands.”
Two fundraisers are coming up next week packed with some incredible artists! We are super excited and thank everyone involved for showing tremendous support for NEF!
