One Minute Brief of the Day:
Campaign to encourage band sign-ups and donations for #RivFest18 in memory of Viola Beach
Today we have an opportunity to get across a great message to encourage band sign ups and donations for #RivFest18
The River Reeves Foundation was set up in memory of River and Viola Beach and their manager Craig Tarry by River's mum Sharon. She has created the foundation to provide support and assistance to young musicians to get them started in their musical career. RivFest is a musical event which should be entering its second year, with the aim of raising funds, but also to get the community to gather to sing, dance and have fun in memory of the boys.
However, RivFest is in danger of not happening this year. There is no shortage of unsigned younger bands, however, the festival needs buy-in from more established, signed bands/groups in order to attract a bigger audience.
The foundation is looking for musicians to donate their time and, as they're a non-profit charity, they're unable to pay cash up front for well-known headliners, so we are looking for bands to help by getting behind the ethos of the charity and put something back into the musical community.
We want to attract the attention of bands (and their management teams!) or potential sponsors to create a great line-up for the festival. So it would be great to mention these bands in your tweets.
Prizes: RivFest Tickets and Hoodies.
ColdPlay, Jamie Oliver and the Vaccines (to name a few) have all done piece to cameras in the past to show their support and we're looking for others to pledge their support and get involved too. Please include the hashtag #RivFest18 mentioning @OfficialRivFest and @OneMinuteBriefs
