In order to make sure that the BMF is as amazing as possible, we have recently launched a Fund It campaign to raise €5000 Euro for this summer's festival. The funds will go towards the running costs of our festival which include venue hire, artist fees, piano tunings, transportation, publicity and much more. We've given ourselves until the 1st of July to do it. To read more about our campaign and how you can help, check out our Fund it page by clicking the link here: Fund It
