PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- The Pleasantville Music Festival has launched a new crowd-funding campaign through Kickstarter.
The Kickstarter campaign is a fundraising effort made possible by independently organized volunteers to raise funds for the Pleasantville Music Festival.
It gives fans a way to get discount advance tickets and other festival-related premiums while helping increase the budget for attracting and booking musical talent.
According to organizers, launching a Kickstarter campaign during the holiday season gives contributors a unique gift idea, along with the knowledge that they're helping build something special for the community.
Organizers are hoping contributors often feel an increased sense of engagement and act as ambassadors, spreading the word to help make the projects they believe in come to fruition. Organizers also hope to generate both ticket sales and excitement now and all the way through the event on Saturday, July 11.
