LEGION FESTIVAL To Go Ahead In 2017 After Funding Secured

LEGION FESTIVAL To Go Ahead In 2017 After Funding Secured
In news that’s made countless industry professionals, musicians, promoters and shitty music websites collectively eat their hats, LEGION FESTIVAL has announced that the event has been fully funded will go ahead in 2017 as planned.

Originally launched via a Pozible crowdfunding campaign, organisers have advised that they will cease taking pledges for the event, with only approximately $350,000 of the proposed $3.2 million goal having been raised. Founder John Sankey advised via an official press release yesterday that without the contributions from punters, the external funding would not have been secured.

”Given that it took longer than anticipated to lock in a headline act, along with a number of other external forces going on in the industry at the moment, we realized that, even though these issues made it very difficult for us to reach our goal in time, the campaign support had given us all the leverage necessary to move forward and fund and confirm the festival. As the founders of this festival, myself, Mark Spillane and Kristie Lawrence are committed to ensuring that we stick to our promise of creating something truly special and unique for the fans and we promise that we will continue to be completely honest and transparent throughout the planning process.”
Lineup announcements are due soon, with the current spread including Sankey’s band Devil You Know, Darkest Hour, Lordi, Frontline Assembly and Devildriver, among others.
