Bit of info you all need to know as of 20th January 2003. Some good news and some bad news too. Unfortunately the following bands aren't plying anymore - Mistress, Kill Yourself, Humans The Size Of Microphones, Eden Maine, Like A Kind Of Matador, Guillaume Seam, Parade of Enemies and Losing The Battle. Various reasons. Some bands have split up, some bands have other commitments (including going to see Magma live which is understandable!!). On the good news front HELVIS, THE DEVILS, RIPLEY and maybe NARCOSIS, KEVORKIAN SOLUTION and VEHEMENCE are playing instead. Hope no-one minds too much but it's all out of my control. Sorry. Right, I'm off to shit my pants some more with worry about sortnig htis whole thing out. Ta.

Entry price isn't definite yet. It'll be in the £5-£7 range for each day though. Depends who else confirms for the fest. There will also be a donation of a tin of veggie food on the door as well for the Bradford Soup Run.
As always, there will be loads of people with record stalls and so on. Get in touch if you want to do a record stall (or any other kind of stall for that matter)
The vegan/veggie cafe will be open both days as well. There's also the cheap bar, cheap pool table and cheap table football.
The benefit is for three different causes:-
Solidarity South Pacific - they're involved with keeping christian missionaries, governemnts, mining companies etc away from indeginous tribes in the south pacific, some of which are the last hunter gatherer tribes left on the planet.
Bradford Asylum Seeker Support - help out asylum seekers who end up in Bradford
Bradford Soup Run - provide free food for the homeless and hungry in Bradford. Bring a tin of veggie food for them!
Money raised from the fest will be split between the first two and the donations of tins of veggie food will go to Bradford Soup Run.
I'll put more information up about the various causes as as soon as i get it
