XOXO is a celebration of disruptive creativity. We want to take all the independent artists using the Internet to make a living doing what they love — the makers, craftspeople, musicians, filmmakers, comic book artists, game designers, hardware hackers — and bring them together with the technologists building the platforms that make it possible.
In just an hour, the project has raised $25,478 of a $125,000 goal. I’m sure it won’t even take a day for tickets to sell out, and the project to raise its goal.
UPDATE: The backers list on this project already looks like a who’s who of the interwebs. This will be huge.
UPDATE MAY 22: In just two days, the XOXO Festival has surpassed the $125000 goal, at about $167000. Tickets are going to sell out soon.
