On Torrentfreak today, the article picks up on our funding situation on the Pirate Bay Party in Stockholm. Thats good. It ramps up the stake.
With only 10 days left, the situation is indeed challenging! Well, life is indeed a journey and this party makes life dramatic. I’m enjoying every bit of this fantastic story, coming to life because of the many, many people now devoted to create this party.
* 120 applications has come in so far from artists that wanted to play at the party. Not anyone requesting so much of a dime.
* 57 persons has applied as volunteers, working to help us out.
* Some 20 persons helps us marketing the event, not even included the persons that has ordered material from us.
* 10 persons planning and organizing more or less double full time.
This party is already a success. We are releasing the full content soon.
Its only a pathetic detail left, which I intend to fix now.
I’m setting an example. I’m donating 10.000sek in tickets which I’m giving away to all artists that applied but did not get a stage time at our event. It will be sent out by mail next week, consider it delivered. It will finance about 10% of the requested money we need.
With that, I’m challenging anyone that calls him/her/it self a pirate to top that, help out and chip in. In fact, every one that ever shared a file via The Pirate Bay.
I’m challenging also the copyright maffia with this, haters in comment fields and in discussions that claim: “Pirates will never pay for anything, they just want everything for free.“.
If they are right and I’m wrong – and this party won’t fly – I’ll shut up (even if others wont) and the copyright maffia wins. If this party does however fly – every person in the world can from then on be reminded of this party in 2013.
For all that matters after that party, The Pirate Bay can go down with pride, leaving the stage for something new.
