They say soon but I'm hoping in the next week. They are still having band Play offs for the right to perform so we will see.

Any thoughts on those announcements? Personally I think they're great, shaping up to be an awesome festival, already looking miles better than last year. Scroobius Pip is amazing live, and Roots Manuva will be great aswell.

Final line up announcement tonight at 7pm!!! I'm going both days anyway but won't be camping as only live in Norwich.

In answer to your question Newcastle Brown, I've been going to festivals for over 20 years now and have been fortunate enough to attend them in both Europe and the States. I only do one a year now (Pukkelpop in Belgium) but, as my wife is due in August, I can't go this summer so it's Play Fest instead. I'm also friends with a couple of the guys who organise it so want to go along to show my support.

At least two of the stages (Big Top and Tipi) are open to campers on the 1st June. I'll try and find out if there's anything else going on.

The Big Top, Tipi Stage, Asylum Stage and the Dance Arena will all be open on the Friday night as far as I know, so there's plenty to do after setting up your tent.

Can't quite contain my excitement for this, last year was brilliant, and this year looks 10 times better.

Weekend camping tickets have nearly sold out, and there is a cut off for weekend camping tickets on the 14th of this month, so if you haven't got your ticket I'd get it now!

Play Fest was also listed as one of the top family festivals by The Sunday Times!
