Seaprog Festival Seeks Donations

Seaprog is a small festival in Seattle that highlights creative music from many genres with artists from around the world. It's also a US non-profit organization. They're seeking donations to help keep the ball rolling. Starting in 2013, the organization has been growing, and has featured such artists as Free Salamander Exhibit, Jack o' the Clock, Nik Turner, Cabezas de Cera, Miriodor, Thinking Plague, and many more.

The 2019 festival is set for June 7-9, and they have already announced headliner Trettioåriga Kriget. More great artists are promised and will be announced as soon as details are solidified. It may seem like a rock festival is a money-making enterprise, and maybe some of them are, but Seaprog is far from an ordinary festival, presenting music from far outside the mainstream. Last year, they made the plunge and became a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so all donations are deductable according to US law.
