Queremos! – Crowdfunding For Live Concerts - hypebot | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Brazil-based Queremos takes a unique approach to whole concept of crowdfunding. Rather than funding an entire album or a tour, fans pool their money together for one show by selling refundable tickets in hopes of raising the minimum amount required to bring the artist to their city. In essence, the band and the fans co-promote the show together in order to ensure that the band makes it to the gig. This is particularly great for fans, as they get to now play the role of promoter by ensuring that word gets out about the show and that the target is reached in order to bring the artists to their town. Most of the promotion for the shows naturally occurs within social media according to Queremos.
