Strings and Stories: A Fundraiser to Support The Bluebird Festival

The Bluebird Music Festival Creates Exclusive Film to Raise Funds

Music festivals across the world are being canceled this year due to COVID-19, and the result is sadly complete financial devastation.  Many music festivals will not be able to recover, and the entire music industry landscape appears to be taking a huge hit across all platforms. 

The Bluebird Music Festival is certainly no exception.  This Colorado festival has suffered the loss of tens of thousands of dollars this year, but the non-profit has come up with a unique way to raise funds. 

An all-star collection of musicians has come together to create an exclusive film, “Strings & Stories”.  Edited and produced by Ian Glass Media, the film showcases intimate performances and personal stories from over a dozen musicians.  But the film will only be available to those who help invest in saving the Bluebird Music Festival. 

However, this is not simply a donation.  Those who donate to the fund will not only get the exclusive film, but they will also automatically become members of the Future Arts Foundation (the non-profit that produces the Bluebird Music Festival). 

In addition, each contributor will receive early notification of special events and exclusive ticket presales.  Plus, contributors will be entered into THE ULTIMATE FAF GIVEAWAY.  The winner will be chosen during a Facebook Live drawing on June 28, 2020. 

The Ultimate FAF Giveaway

There will only be one winner for the ultimate prize package, but that winner will get to choose between two prize options.
