About charity music festivals
There are quite a few music festivals happening all around the world every year. Some of them are there to bring new artists to people, some are there to unite people and spread awareness about something or to make people enjoy music. But the most noble ones are those which main job it is to collect money for charities.
They are being organized by individuals or groups of people, philanthropists and charity organizations. Their job is not always easy because they have to make sure that all the money they raise goes to charity organizations. But since the festivals also cost some money, their main job is to find artists and musicians that are well known and willing to perform for free, but for a good cause. They also collect donations from people and other organizations and companies to cover the costs of the stage, management and to pay for other stuff.
You can't only help by buying a ticket, but also by donating as much as you can and even by volunteering. By doing that you can help the people organize everything in the best way possible, so that people see that work has been put into the festival. That is crucial to make them come back next year.
Some of the festivals don't have a fixed ticked price nor a minimal entrance fee, so that you can give one pound or hundred pounds and still get in and listen to the music. But you should know that they worked hard to do all that possible and that the musician don't get anything. So make your donation as big as you can.
On charity music festivals there is being played classical, rock, jazz, folk, hip-hop, pop and even Christian music. After you visit one of these festivals you will see why people go to them and realize you want to go back next year.
