Legion Announces ‘Fan Council’ To Help Plan Festival

In another unprecedented move, the organisers of the crowdfunded Legion festival will convene an honorary ‘fan council’ to help oversee the organisation of the event.

In a new Facebook announcement, the Legion lords decreed that a council shall be formed, consisting of two representatives from each state (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth & Adelaide).

“To make sure we’re staying across fan feedback – we’ll be bringing in two people that have pledged from each state to form the council,” reads the statement from Legion HQ.

“We will consult them on any major decisions and have them be across the planning of the event.”

“Anyone that has already pledged can email [email protected] by 9am AEDT tomorrow [Friday, 15th January] morning and we will select two people from each state.”

It marks the latest effort to get fans more directly involved in the DIY festival, which is aiming to break the world record for crowdfunding by raising a monster $2.75 million.

But it looks like it may take a miracle for that to happen, with the piggy bank currently sitting at $297,466 – or just over 10% of the campaign target – with only 11 days left to go.
