Festival Château Sonic

<p dir="ltr"> <strong>What is Château Sonic?</strong></p> <p dir="ltr"> Château Sonic is a music and arts festival. The first edition will take place this summer (19th/20th/21st of August), in Haute-Savoie, France. There will be concerts at night, and lots of cultural and artistic activities during the day (theater, foodtrucks, participatory art projects, workshops…) in a festive and open-minded atmosphere!</p> <p dir="ltr">  </p> <p> <img alt="Chateauavullyvueaerienne_54_fr-1463066134" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/315591/chateauAvullyVueAerienne_54_fr-1463066134.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p dir="ltr"> <u>During the day:</u></p> <p dir="ltr"> The ‘Village Sonic’ and its various activities in the castle’s gardens: participatory workshops, food trucks, chill areas, and many other surprises…</p> <p> <img alt="Sketch16612220_2_-1463066102" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/315590/Sketch16612220_2_-1463066102.png"></p> <p dir="ltr">  </p> <p dir="ltr"> <u>During the night:</u></p> <p dir="ltr"> The main stage - the ‘Muraille du son’ (the ‘sonic barrier’) will be displayed on the esplanade in front of the castle where live bands (garage rock, pop-rock, hip hop, world music…) and DJs will be performing, while the ‘Knight club’ the second -smaller and more intimate- stage will be focused on electronic music in the castle’s courtyard.</p> <p dir="ltr">  </p> <p> <img alt="10375153_10207667489023844_2735794444419862876_n_2_-1463065814" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/315585/10375153_10207667489023844_2735794444419862876_n_2_-1463065814.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p dir="ltr"> <strong>Who is Château Sonic?</strong></p> <p dir="ltr">  </p> <p dir="ltr"> &gt; <em>A founding association</em>: Culturoscope is a 2015 association, created by 8 newly graduated striving to offer cultural and artistic activities to their home region.</p> <p dir="ltr"> The crazy bet that we went for with Château Sonic is the result of this desire - offering to share in a breath-taking and unusual location our musical discoveries from the upcoming music and artistic scene.</p> <p dir="ltr">  </p> <p> <img alt="1915621_10153901494058115_3226496390804766321_n-1463065893" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/315587/1915621_10153901494058115_3226496390804766321_n-1463065893.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p dir="ltr"> &gt; <em>Artists</em>: the first names from our music line up just came out! You’ll be dancing to: Cannery Terror, VOIRON, Levin goes lightly, The pilotwings, Zayk, Sierra Manhattan, Electric Safari, LB aka Labat, Silence, Patella… and many more to come!</p> <p dir="ltr">  </p> <p dir="ltr"> <img alt="13178946_976206839115409_3891934588761016903_n-1463480901" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/317299/13178946_976206839115409_3891934588761016903_n-1463480901.png"></p> <p dir="ltr">  </p> <p dir="ltr"> &gt; <em>Associations</em>: we’re working with locally-based associations to offer a various and diverse line-up, for and with the locals through original, artistic and participatory performances.</p> <p dir="ltr">  </p> <p dir="ltr"> &gt; <em>Technicians and professionals</em>: working along with us, since the beginning: for the sound and light equipments and management, security, graphic design…</p> <p dir="ltr">  </p> <p> <img alt="Sketch1661235_2_-1463066266" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/315592/Sketch1661235_2_-1463066266.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p dir="ltr"> And most of all, this is all FOR YOU: we went and met locals, to find out what they really want to offer the most suitable event possible: festive, accessible and inter-generational, where everyone can find what they are looking for (activities for the youngest, live music, arts and crafts for everyone…)</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p>

Allocation of funds

<p dir="ltr"> Kicking off a festival in a medieval castle for the first time implies a lot of unavoidable costs and difficulties on the road:</p> <p dir="ltr"> • The absence of public subsidies the first year (an association needs to be &lt;1 year old to apply for such loans).</p> <p dir="ltr"> • The difficulty to create from scratch partnerships and sponsorship with local entreprises (we need to show our value, which we intend to do over the years!)</p> <p dir="ltr"> • A very expensive location to secure: we need to protect both the castle and the festival-goers</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Screen_shot_2016-05-11_at_16.16.53-1463066744" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/315596/Screen_Shot_2016-05-11_at_16.16.53-1463066744.png"></p> <p dir="ltr">  </p> <p dir="ltr"> The ‘Get up’ contest that we participated to allowed us to inject €10,000 in our crazy dream. But that’s only 1/4 of our global budget, and half of our contribution. We’re still looking for subventions, partnerships and have gone pro in the fine art of harassing potential sponsors!</p> <p> That being said, €3,000 from you will help us secure for real our budget and allow Château Sonic not to go bankrupt the first year.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Screen_shot_2016-05-11_at_16.17.30-1463066758" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/315597/Screen_Shot_2016-05-11_at_16.17.30-1463066758.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p dir="ltr"> <strong>What will we do with €3,000?</strong></p> <p dir="ltr"> insure an even more diverse line-up both during day and night to make you live your very own fairy tale</p> <p dir="ltr"> allow a peaceful access to dry toilets for all of you</p> <p> deal with those unavoidable costs that we have: talkies-walkies to make sure everything is going smoothly everywhere (you can imagine how bad the reception is in a castle with those heavy walls!), barriers to protect you from falling in the moat and so forth!</p> <p>  </p> <p dir="ltr"> <strong>What if we get more money?</strong></p> <p> We definitely close our budget and can stop our sponsor hunt!</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Nana_cosmica-1463067701" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/315603/nana_cosmica-1463067701.jpg"></p>
