As Samois Festival is an outdoor festival, and last year was surrounded by all the waters of the universe, the volunteers association needs your help. “Our festival is funded almost 80% from own resources” Georges Ferrone says. “Since this is an outdoor festival, the weather conditions strongly influence the public attendence. Our financial resources are therefore irregular. Sponsorship and crowdfunding can help us both to maintain affordable rates and to develop ambitious projects, including the promotion of young artists and the development of local talent. Through crowdfunding and the Ulule platform we have the opportunity to get directly into contact with you. Your support is invaluable !”
