eFestivals is fund-raising

eFestivals has been here 20 years supporting festivals and festival goers. Without your support it will not continue as it has been.
Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

Contemplating this one whilst walking the dog earlier today, you mind-reader.

From those that have played before (but not this year, of course), I'd be highly pleased with System 7 & Pama International.

Those not yet played but possible IMO would be Blackbud, Zion Train, Zetan Spore, Jimmy Sommerville, and Piney Gir.

And for the big baby who may not appear to fit (but do) am suggesting Teenage Fanclub, well past their sell-by, but tons of stonking tunes, and small enough.

But frankly, after this year's selection of "who are they's" who all turned out fine, and just so long as no extra-special headliners are promised :angry: , quite happy for them to chose.

PS, any chance of The Levs headlining a different night......

Did they not do a different night to Sunday in the early days of the fest (before it was a 3-dayer)?

Like Scottie says The Levs open the festival on the Friday & close it on the Sunday night.

You can't expect them to play their main stage set another night can you?!

It is THEIR festival afterall!

Besides, hopefully next year we could have THE WONDERSTUFF (or Hawkwind :) )headlining Saturday night & the likes of The Cure or The Mission Friday nite. That's my prediction.

TSU, why you suggesting Levellers not do Sunday nite? You're not suggesting we leave ealy again? :angry:

Anyway, as Scottie posted on another forum BDays is earlier next year so I know impossible to predict the weather but I've got a good feeling in my bones we'll have a good one from 15th August next year. Yep I got a good feeling about that.

Ooh, and I'd be up for 3 Daft Monkeys, Dreadzone, + Dub Pistols all doing repeat performances if poss.

Yeah, Bring it on baby, only 50 weeks until Beautiful Days 2008!! :lol:

51 actually, it may be earlier, but that's cos it's a leap year. :angry:

Levs on the Saturday so that I can see them regardless of any questionable decisions on the Sunday, quite right. :lol:

Yes Please!

(Are they awkward types to book? They were active on the fest circuit this year, but didn't make Glasto despite most every man/woman/animal finding a stage somewhere :angry: )

Zion Train are one of the easiest and most polite band to book and deal with - they are lovely. In fact all of the people we have booked at ENdorse-it through their agent have been a joy to work with ( Molora, Powersteppers, Nucleus Roots, Dubdadda etc)

You made me check the calendar for next year. All starts Fri 15th August?

What with the ref to Thursday?

Back to the subject guys, what other acts we suggesting for 2008?

The Mission are doing gigs next Feb/March. Would they do B/Days?

Or are they more of a Carling Weekend at Reading/Leeds? Or even Download/Donnington (Not my cup-of-tea).

After Killing Joke headlining last year and NMA 2nd headline this year I reckon we'll have a Punk/Goth band again at B/Days next year.

What do you think?

What about Bauhaus?

I think the Cure are far too big to play BD, i'd say they could, and might possibly, be headlining Glasto in 2008.

How about getting somebody along the line's of Belle & Sebastien, The Jesus & March Chain or the (possibly) reforming My Bloody Valentine? All would be great!
