I have run this festival for 8 years. and am hoping to run it in 2021
www.fastnetmaritime.com.
The Festival is not run to make a profit, nor is it a business
Dictionary defintion of an entrepreneur
a person who sets up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit.
The festival is run to benefit the Ballydehob community and to promote folk music, with the intention PRIMARILY of covering costs.
THE MINIMIUM BUDGET IS APPROX 4 500E,THIS INCLUDES INSURANCE. ACCOMODATION COSTS. PA COSTS AND ARTISTS EXPENSES ETC
People are free to visit me and look at bank statements.
The festival has in the past booked AndyIrvine twice, Martin Carthy 3 times twice, Tom Lewis.John Kirkpatrick Matt Cranitch JackieDaly Jimmy Crowley.
Donovan even turned up as a visitor one year to see Martin Carthy
