Hello, I'm Tikvah. I am a member of the crew with Mechanismus. We are an industrial music promotion group, which holds one of the largest industrial music festivals every year. Due to covid, we had to cancel the last planned festival and went to virtual instead. Now, we are coming back to bring out the biggest and best live festival we have ever had! We want this to be a safe and fun experience for everyone involved and are very mindful of all of the complications of having such events in this day and age. With that in our hearts, we need to ask for financial support to help us succeed in all of our goals.
The bottom line is, the income from ticket sales isn’t immediately accessible to cover the costs we have now, such as; getting visas and tickets for the bands, booking accommodations, paying for the new venue, or the myriad of other upfront costs associated with putting an outstanding industrial music event like this together. To be absolutely transparent: This has not been a profitable venture. It's a genuine labor of love. We do this for the love of the music and the desire to keep it out there for everyone to enjoy! Any extra financial profit we would find ourselves with will immediately go towards the next festival.
For this reason, we are reaching out to you – our community and beyond – to request whatever level of financial assistance you can donate to help ease the burden and make this festival run smoothly. Every bit helps, so please donate whatever you can!
More updates to come! Thank you!
