Can we play an encore if the crowd want us to ?
Unfortunately this is not allowed under festival conditions due to the timings of the set lengths and change over times. If you do over run on purpose you will be cutting into another bands time, we would hope that everybody is respectful of this. Put yourself in the position of the next band on being told to drop a track from their set cause the stage is running behind.
Can we sell our own merchandise at the festival ?
Yes of course. We have a very busy merchandise stand right in the foyer of the venue. Every band performing can sell merchandise here on our fully manned stand. You will need to book in your merchandise using the form supplied in your festival info pack. This allows each band to list items they have for sale, quantities and prices they want for them. We do ask for a small donation of your choice from the total of each bands sales for this service but every penny goes to our chosen charity.
Once you arrive to collect your merchandise from the stand before you leave the festival, we will return your unsold items, along with the form showing what items were sold along with your takings less any donation, so you will have a full record for your accounts.
My band are performing, what time should i be at the venue ?
Firstly thanks for your support !
You should have been sent a festival info pack which will list your load-in time, this is usually 1hr 2mins before your stage time. You can book in anytime before this and collect your passes, book in your merchandise onto the main merch stall or use the green room and take advantage of the all day buffet we lay on for all performing band members.
What time do the doors open ?
Friday 15th September 2018 the doors will be open from 6.30pm with the first band starting at 7.00pm
