WMC: How We Got Here & How You Can Help

WMC Fest aims to be the premiere design and music festival in the midwest. Three days and 70+ performances from August 16-18. We’ve got until June 5 to raise $7,000 on our Kickstarter. We recommend pledging at least $50 because you get various rewards such as $200 in design resources, tickets to the festival, t-shirts, limited edition posters, etc. Go here to make a pledge and choose your reward. If we do not reach our goal, we do not get any of the funds! You can help us reach our goal.
