Get Abney Park over to the UK...

We are trying to organise a Steampunk festival here in the UK with the band ABNEY PARK (from Seattle) as our headline artist.

Hello, We are a couple of music lovers and we are trying to organise a Steampunk festival here in the UK with the band ABNEY PARK (from Seattle) as our headliner. The band has agreed to play for free if we can provide their air fair. Fans will come if Abney Park comes, so our event is pivoting on us raising enough money for their air fair.

The festival will take place on the beautiful grounds of a Victorian Workhouse, which is in Mid Wales in a beautiful rural village called Llanfyllin and the festival itself will take place over the weekend of 24/25th August 2012.

At this time we have the problems of getting the air fares together due to the extreme bad weather in the UK. The flooding has temporarily halted our tickets sales for this festival. This summer has had the highest rainfall ever recorded, so the ticket sales are below our target at this stage…but they will pick up!!! We have so much interest in this festival from around the world and people in the UK do not have a venue or show like this one to be part of.

From ticket sales so far we have managed to fund deposits for staging/lighting/sound but there's there is still insufficient funds for airflight tickets for Abney park. Abney Park themselves have to fly from Seattle, USA to London Heathrow UK. We ask you for support in bringing them to the UK. Below is some information about the festival....
