The Fuengirola Pop Weekend born in the summer of 2008 with the idea to establish itself as a Festival specialised on promoting Music and POP Culture in general, making room for artists of proven quality and reliability within the Spanish independent scene and internationally, in a genuine expression space for our favorite musical styles: Pop, Rock, Powerpop, Punkpop, Garage, Beat, Surf, Soul...
During the first 5 editions, until FPW 2012, our goal has been none other than trying to supplement the standardized summer cultural offerings on the Costa del Sol, trying to arouse the interest of a huge minority, from here and abroad.
But last year, due to the accumulated losses and the sponsors shortage, we decided not to go ahead with the project... However, at the insistence of a group of friends Festival regulars, we decided to try to carry out a new edition through crowdfunding.
This sixth edition of the FPW will therefore be a Special Edition, ONLY FOR PATRONS.
There will be no tickets on sale for (or advance or door) nor invitations or press credentials. The Festival will be exclusively by and for sponsors & patrons who help the project with their contributions.
IN WHAT WE WILL SPEND THE MONEY
The money raised will go entirely to cover all costs of the FPW 2013, which this year amounted to € 8,000. If it's recaudased more money than necessary, it will be distributed among the bands and DJs who are part of this year's Festival.
First, we'll buy the airline tickets for the artists who will travel to the Festival through that way: Kurt Baker (USA), Radio Days (Italy) and Bubblegum (Asturias); before such bills rise price and go to ruin our estimates. The remaining costs will be paid during the Festival. Just as the rewards, which basically consist of tickets and passes for the patrons of the Festival, in addition to the acknowledgments by e-mail and facebook, and special mentions will be made in a video on FPW 2013 after its completion.
