Legion Music Festival organisers have today announced that its 2017 festival will go ahead as planned. This is despite only reaching just over 10% of their original $3.2Million goal via their Pozible Campaign. The posts have been moved quite a few times since their original Pozible campaign, which was extended for 60 days after the initial failure to garner enough support of their original dates in March 2016.

Having originally planned to crowd fund the festival through a Pozible campaign, organisers have now stated that they will no longer accept pledges and that the campaign will be brought to a close. Legion founder, John Sankey, has stated that it was the support that was generated through the crowd funding concept that made the festival confirmation possible: “Given that it took longer than anticipated to lock in a headline act, along with a number of other external forces going on in the industry at the moment, we realised that, even though these issues made it very difficult for us to reach our goal in time, the campaign support had given us all the leverage necessary to move forward and fund and confirm the festival.”

Organisers will announce ticket prices and on sale dates shortly, and have also mentioned that anyone that has pledged their support as a part of the Pozible campaign will be heavily rewarded as founding members.
