September is rapidly approaching which means Mission Creek Oakland Music & Arts Festival is almost here! This year we are teaming up with the East Bay Express to bring you an entire month of shows! But those of us in the MCO camp need your help. We’ve started a Kickstarter campaign to help offset some of the cost of doing a festival & to help pay for some of the larger bands we are trying to book.
Last years festival was done completely out of our own pockets and although it as a great festival, we’re not trying to give up eating for a month again for the sake of shows. So if you can, please donate and help us do something amazing for Oakland.
Also in MCO news, with the launch of the Kickstarter campaign we are also announcing that we have started accepting band submissions for anyone interested in playing this years festival. Submissions are open to musicians of any genre and not limited to bands of the Bay Area. Anyone anywhere can enter, they just need to submit before the July 15th deadline.
So spread the word and help this be as great of a festival as it could be.
