NEF 2016 Indiegogo Campaign!


Over the past six months, we’ve been working with generous volunteers to provide support for our musicians, such as practice space, instruments, workshops, skillshares, showcase events and more, all leading up to the festival on May 21st and 22nd. We are super excited for the fest and already have about 10 brand new bands signed up to play! (details and line-up to be posted soon!)
We are grateful for all the support we have received from organizations such as APIRG, Harcourt House Artist Run Centre, the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts, Ritchie Community League, and Blackbox Studios well as the volunteers who have helped endlessly with providing food, creating amazing posters for events, photographing and filming our events. Without their support, this could not be happening. We are now looking to you to help us continue this important work!
If you can afford to help, we would greatly appreciate a donation to help us with the final festival! We are also looking for volunteers and *shares* to get this campaign off the ground.
Check out our Indiegogo campaign and the short video we filmed starring some of your favorite NEF organizers!
