HART is the first crowdfunded electronic music festival. In one month time, HART has reached its funding goal of €30.000 on Kickstarter. Together with 370 Founding Fathers we are shaping HART festival which will take place on May 6th in Ghent, Belgium. HART will be an 18 hour rave on three locations throughout the city: ICC, Decadance and Niche club. This way, we can offer both a high quantity of international artists and the intimacy of a club experience.
Organizing a festival through crowdfunding is not just a way to get funding. It opens up new and exciting ways to integrate fans in the organization. A community is created and people can choose to take an active role in the festival. This involvement is what sets us apart from traditional festivals and makes it e.g. possible for fans to curate their own stage.
