The Oxford Gargoyles – Oxford University’s jazz a cappella ensemble – is the second group of Voice Festival UK winners to be successfully funded on FringeBacker, the first being All the King’s Men of King’s College London.

Congratulations to the Gatling Gun Revival, the local indie-folk band successfully raised over HK$20,400 (136% overfunded). The funding, like the first bullet fired off from the Gatling Gun, provides a great start for the band to forge ahead with their music album debut and allows them to film and produce their music video to further the band's creative vision. We are looking forward to hearing more from them!
