We're crowd-funding to help support the festival and asking for your help. Watch resident Silent Disco DJ DJ Toph as he explains everything, or if you prefer a read then see below:
After much hard work, the festival has been accepted for a special project run by Essex County Council and Spacehive which will help boost funds we raise for the festival if we meet our target. The more we can raise, the more we can boost that figure. Whether it is 50p, £1 or more - every little bit that you can contribute will go towards making the festival the very best it can for this year and will help ensure it's return for next year.
The festival cost over £27k per year to host and we only just cover that through fundraising and donation schemes like this and the gig last night, sponsorship and advertising from local business and drinks sales from the beer tent on the day.
So please, pledge as much as you can, this form of fundraising means whatever you can give is worth even more to us than ever. There's just under 50 days to go so please don't hold off. And of course, thank you so much in advance for your kind donations.
