Along with 'Temp Chek' and Uni Fest, we are working in the web3 space, exploring the potential of music NFTs for our career as musicians and figuring out how we can share this with the greater independent music scene.
Uni Fest came about as an idea two years ago at the same time we came up with Uni Streaming (a streaming platform that caters to local independent musicians and their super fans).
Uni Fest was out a way to give back to local musicians IRL ("In Real Life") in a big way. We asked ourselves, "What is the most critical market for independent musicians?" --Their local market.
What is Uni Fest, and where is my donation going?
Uni Fest is a crowdfunded tour (mainly backed by web3 projects & people) that highlights 10-15 independent musicians from each city. Giving them a chance to perform for their local crowd, get paid for their performance, and receive contractual validation to bring to other local venues.
Using the funds raised, YouniDAO will pay musicians to perform. When Uni Fest concludes, we will evenly distribute any remaining funds to all performing musicians & the YouniDAO treasury!
You can find a more detailed budget breakdown above ^^
How are you raising funds for Uni Fest?:
We will collect the funds using platforms like Go-fund-me and other Web3 solutions. We are spreading awareness about Uni Fest through what we call 'Temp Chek.'
What is 'Temp Chek'?
Temp Chek is a traveling crowdfund and onboarding campaign. Both founders, Cannon & Brenna, have dedicated their next 6-12 months to be on the road. While living the road life, they will visit all 11 East Coast cities they plan to tour for Uni Fest Summer 2023.

How can I get involved beyond donations?
We created a google form to help everyone discover different ways they can push Uni Fest forward. This form is intended for those who can or can't afford to contribute monetarily. We believe that both resources are vital to making this a success.

I'm interested in NFTs & Web3:
We will be minting some of the images you found on the website as another way to collect funds. If you'd instead contribute in this way, message us!
If you'd simply like to learn more about web3 music, we have plenty of resources to help someone get started.
