Nobody of us lives in Amsterdam of Paris. But Didier lives in Brussels and I live close
to Brussels. It would be easier if it was done in Brussels because then we would be able
to spend much more time searching for sponsors and companies that offer the equipment
(stage, light- and music equipment,...) for the best prize. We should also try to
convince people to lend equipment to us for free.
Outside or inside? Because I would prefer to do it in the summer (see
point 2) I believe it would be best to do it outside. This would make
it less expensive (grassland is cheaper to rent than a room).
It could be done in a stadium.
I prefer August. This would give us enough time to organize it and
young people are free (no school).
3) Music groups
I would prefer to invite some well known band(s) (these would draw
public) and mix them with some smaller bands. I would prefer not to
have extreme genres of music (e.g. techno).
- Bloc party
- The Calling
- The Strokes
- Absynthe Minded
Mogwai has an exclusive contract and isn't able to come.
Absynthe Minded is unable before the summer and in August (due to an exclusivity
contract with large festivals).
I'm still waiting for information about the cost. After I have an idea about the cost
then I will search for the money. I hope to do this before 7 February because then
we will have a board meeting.
The costs would be paid by:
- Donations to Heales
- Other life extension organisations (Imminst, Humanity+,...???)
- Private sponsors (companies, shops,...)
- I would organize a diner and the profits would be used to pay the concert.
5) I would like to invite dr. de Grey to give a small lecture between
different music groups. Dr. de Grey would be able to reach a public
that otherwise wouldn't come to listen to his speeches. So, I think
this concert is an excellent way to reach new people.
Dr. de Grey will need to have a projector, so we could use it to project slogans (for
example: "President Bill Clinton: we want to live forever and we're getting there") and
pictures (logo Heales, methuselah foundation and imminst) on the big screen.
I would suggest that we donate the profits to lysoSENS.
We should also sell some things like:
- Ending aging
- T-shirts from heales, MF, imminst,...
