Foldback Magazine 2020

Foldback Magazine is fundraising survival for 2020! We need your help to cover a few essential overheads to continue to support and promote the Northern Territory’s unique and incredible music industry and its artists!

Days Left

Foldback Magazine is a grass roots digital publication dedicated to the promotion of the NT music industry.

Our volunteer photographers & writers cover events across the NT to provide a high-quality body of work including gig photography, reviews, music news & more. They ensure NT based artists have a strong online presence & the NT is recognised for its incredible & unique talent & creativity.

Foldback has very low overheads but we cannot operate without a few core operational needs.

We are on a strong pathway to developing a sustainable business model but it’s a big journey & we need your help!

Your valuable donation will see Foldback bring you the best coverage of the NT’s live music scene & help Foldback promote NT artists locally & nationally.

Our target of $5000 will see Foldback through 2020 on the core essentials while we continue to develop this small creative arts media organisation towards a sustainable future.

Despite the challenges NT musicians face (remoteness, limited venues, smaller audiences, higher costs to everything) NT artists are enriching the cultural & social experience of all of us here, locals & tourists alike.

To grow audiences, it helps to have a body of performance coverage online. This can feel pretty unattainable when juggling the realities of trying to make a living from music & the high cost & low availability of getting professional photographers at your shows. If you’re a performing artist in the NT, Foldback has your back!

Take it from the artists:
“Excellent photos, excellent people. The crew in Foldback go above & beyond in capturing top quality snaps of Territorians in their element. I’m forever using their photos for my personal & band social media. I’ll never stop loving Foldback Magazine, keep up the good work you mob!” Jaxon De Santis

“Incredible work, can’t thank Steve & the team enough for the constant support & work into the scene!” Kaotik

“A huge supporter of NT music scene. Great mag & great people” Dave Crowe

Your donations will be spent over 2020 on:
1. Core essential operating costs $4500 – insurance, governance fees, a software contribution & website costs – The overheads that we can’t operate without BUT equally critical is
2. Volunteer LOVE budget $500 – It is so important that we can reimburse volunteers for out of pocket costs like fuel to get to remote gigs & to be able to come together once in a while for team building & to say thanks to all our vollies.

In 2020 we have an ambitious agenda aiming to increase sustainability & audience, seek new contributors from across the NT, promote the NT music scene locally & nationally AND produce our 2nd annual digital edition.

You can be a part of this.
