Save Fest Jazz
It was the only rainy weekend of the summer and it had to be during Fest Jazz!
the festival it was a catastrophe. On the Sunday 29th July we had only
402 spectators who braved the appalling wind and rain whereas in 2016
(and previous years) we had around 1100.
spectators represents a deficit of at least 14 000€. Whereas other
festivals can turn to their town for help we cannot. The commune of
Châteauneuf is very generous and supportive of the festival but with
only 3 600 inhabitants it doesn’t have the resources to give more.
future of Fest Jazz is in serious doubt. That is why the young team
who worked so hard to organise this year’s event have launched an
appeal via a Crowd Funding project: “Save Fest Jazz!”.
