Fluff Fest 2014 will take place on July 25th, 26th and 27th in Rokycany, Czech Republic. See the official confirmations below!
There are a couple things “new” in the process. The Fluff Fest crew has decided to run offline consultations with all of you interested in taking the fest to another level, improve its organization and simply making it even better. Check out the official word below and book this year’s July 25-27 weekend right away!
We have decided to try a new system of work on the fest so we are taking our work meetings public starting next week. We will be holding them approx. once a month in late afternoons or evenings in Prague and everyone who is interested in helping or changing something or simply wants to know more about how it works behind the scenes with FLUFF is welcome. We’re hoping to freshen up the fest a little and get better feedback as well. Each meeting will have a list of subjects we will go through plus time for discussion. A short report will then be published on our website.
The first one will take place at the Fluffwheels offices at Nadrazni 3 in Prague 5 on Tuesday 28th January at 6pm where we will be going through a FLUFF13 recap, promotion and the work team for FLUFF14 and maybe through some ideas for changes.
UPDATE / April 28th: fluff fest open organizing meeting is open to anybody who wants to participate. this time we will go through: – playlist – nonmusic stuff – volunteering – q&a – when: 6.5. at 6pm – where: Nadrazni 3, Praha Smichov ve FLUFFWHEELS.COM hq – why: we have pretty clear idea where we want to keep the festival, but at the same time we want visitors to be able to create the festival as well. we are open to anybody who wants to participate in a positive way. stop by if you are interested and share this with people who might be interested.
