This season, Bonnaroo festival creators Superfly teamed up with Velvet Sea Ventures to create SUPERF3ST. Accordingly, this is the first project of newly-formed SuperNFT Inc. SUPERF3ST empowers a community of music and art lovers to cast their votes and design their perfect festival experiences together. Thanks to NFT tech, experienced festival producers can now bring their audience’s desires to reality.
“We are using the new NFT technologies to do something fundamentally human — to create and collaborate as a global community,” said Rick Farman. “That’s exciting as I come out of my third decade as an experience creator. Superfly invented the modern festival. SUPERF3ST is our way of reinventing it.”
The project’s debut NFT collection, the SUPERPASS, consists of 3,000 NFTs and is already available. However, minting will close on September 9th, so let’s find out all about this unique initiative ASAP!
What is SUPERF3ST?
In essence, SUPERF3ST is a music and culture festival scheduled for late 2023. The founding team at Superfly describes the project as “the world’s most vibrant festival community” and for good reason. Attendees will be able to enjoy top musical performances, culinary experiences, and other surprises at the festival – all influenced by SUPERPASS holders!
Furthermore, SUPERPASS holders will get to live the festival lifestyle year round with access to rare art drops, merchandise, IRL meet-ups, digital experiences, product discounts, and a recently announced SUPERPASS Treasury program which will fund community projects.
What are your perks as an NFT holder?
The SUPERPASS NFT holders are dubbed “SUPERF3ST Founders”. In essence, each community Founder can vote on key aspects of SUPERF3ST. For instance, Founders can decide over culinary experiences, merch, location, timing, and more.
Furthermore, Founders will be able to take part in the Field Trip program. This initiative provides tickets to unique events around the world. What’s more, Founders will also gain exclusive access to a community Treasury designed to bring their creative ideas to life.
“The NFT essentially serves as a membership token, and our goal is to empower our community members to design, create, and own the experiences they are truly seeking,” says Superfly Co-founder Rick Farman.
Accordingly, the voting will happen via the SUPERF3ST Discord channel and website. SuperNFT’s CEO Tori Stevens explains that this provides “full transparency for our community members on key decisions that need to be made along with the results of those votes.”
In other words, this is your chance to create the festival of your dreams from scratch while participating in a year-round community! You can get a SUPERPASS NFT from the project’s website for 0.3 ETH per piece.
Who is the team behind SuperNFT?
SuperNFT was created by the same people who founded Superfly. This company is behind successful festivals such as Bonnaroo and Outside Lands. Now, Superfly partnered with Velvet Sea Ventures for a unique NFT-powered experience.
SUPERF3ST is the first project of SuperNFT, whose investors include Autograph.io, Pixel Vault’s GFunk, Art Blocks’ Erick “SnowFro” Calderon, and Sifth Man Ventures’ Mike Dudas. In addition, the investor list also includes Tokenproof’s Fonz Olvera, along with Ehrenberg Capital, JDS Sports, among others.
