Cassandra Coleman is asking fans to donate to her upcoming hometown indie fest, set for October 23. After a handful of shows, including a Christmas Concert scheduled for December 3, the American Idol 2021 finalist plans to go off the grid to record her debut record.
“Hello dear friends! I’m asking for your help just one more time,” Cassandra writes on Instagram. “As many of you know, I’m putting on a festival @columbia.indie.fest in my hometown before I go into my ‘performance hibernation’ to work solely on original music.”
Columbia Indie Fest Takes place in Downtown Columbia, Tenn
The singer continues, “I would be so humbled and thankful if I could have your help, via donation, in putting on this event!” Cassandra goes on to describe the event, which will take place in Columbia, Tennessee’s “beautiful” downtown square. The event will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of South Central Tenn.
The charity event will feature 10 hours of live music on alternating stages with 24 artists. The main stage will be live-streamed. A kid’s village, “tons” of vendors, food trucks, outdoor activities and more are part of the fun.
Tickets and the line-up will be released within the next two weeks. Cassandra promises the tickets will be “super affordable” and admission for children under 13 is free.

“We are SO excited and know it’s going to be such a fun day,” writes Cassandra. “But because this is a first year event it’s hard to gauge the amount of you that will attend!”
Cassandra is asking fans to donate to the event. “Any amount helps,” she says. “I would be incredibly thankful.” The singer adds, “I want to use the platform I’ve been blessed with to help other dreamers and you can help me make that happen by donating.”

Cassandra shared the stress she feels post-American Idol
Recently, Cassandra shared about the pressure she felt as a newly-minted artist from a singing show.
“The pressure to create after leaving the show is quite intense,” Cassandra confessed. “You suddenly gain a crazy amount of followers without an organic growth process. I mean, you all are here before I’ve even released my first single! Such an honor and a blessing.. and I am stressed !!!!”
“I just need you all to know that I want to have music out as quickly as possible, but I don’t want to expedite the process and [compromise] on quality,” she said, adding, “I understand that decision will make some people forget about me, or become disinterested, but I want to be proud of what I release.”
