Seaprog has never been a for-profit enterprise, and our fiscal sponsorship with Shunpike cements our commitment to present the best music possible without consideration of commercial appeal.
Ticket sales alone have never covered the expenses of putting on the festival, and we would like to keep ticket prices affordable for more fans. We are presenting bands that make non-commercial music with little hope of "making it big," and we want to treat them with the respect their art deserves. This means paying them fairly.
We do everything we can to keep expenses low, and have never been motivated by money. Your tax-deductible donation will help keep this festival going, allowing us to continue to present artistically challenging and diverse-sounding music that doesn't really have another home in the Northwest.
Where else are you going to find such amazing artists from around the world as Thinking Plague, miRthkon, Miriodor, Corima, MoeTar, Petrina, Nik Turner, Jack o' the Clock, Zero Times Everything, and Cabezas de Cera, along with local artists ranging from electronic experimentation to chamber rock to space rock to progressive grunge and more?
Help keep the vision alive and growing with your contribution, either as a monthly pledge or one-time donation. And don't forget to check with your employer to see if they offer matching donations.
