The story of the project
We all LOVE the music festival experience.
It means a lot of things to a lot of people. Whether it’s a rite of passage, discovering that new band that blows you away, a shared experience for you and a group of mates having a blast together, or as a way of getting to see that one act you have always wanted to see live.
The buzz, the sound, the smells (?!) and the feeling of loud, live, heavy music hitting you in the chest while standing alongside thousands of people all experiencing the same thing… this is what attracts us all to events like this.
We now have an opportunity to rally together and make history. Through our commitment to this crowdfunding model, together we can help establish a future for the Australian live music scene and have our actions speak boldly to the world.
Our number one goal with Legion music fest is to be able to establish an ongoing event driven by you, the fans as well as the artists, and produce it in a sustainable way so it will always be there for us.
This groundbreaking way of funding major music festivals is a true collaboration between the artists, the fans and the production team to do something great.
With transparency across the entire planning process and open communication with the fans throughout, the events can be tailored in a way never before seen, truly giving the power back to heavy music lovers in Australia.
We have strength in numbers. We are LEGION.
Legion Music Fest have commissioned an experienced, world class production team to handle the planning of the Festival.
The Legion HQ team now consists of professionals that have handled ticketing, staging, event production, merchandise, tour management, artist liaison, marketing and publicity for large scale events and festivals both here in Australia and all over the world.
The following artists support LEGION MUSIC FEST 2016. These acts are committed to perform if you pledge your support and, together, we reach our goal.
While we have a majority of the line up committed in principle, given time constraints of the holiday’s, most artist’s agents and management are unavailable to finalise contracts. We are still in the process of confirming a number of interested national and international acts.
The supporters list below will be updated regularly.
WE HAVE SOME VERY EXCITING ACTS TO BE CONFIRMED WITH OVER 20+ FURTHER ACTS TO BE ANNOUNCED.
