Bandamp meet 2013
Here is a copy of an eMail i sent to see if band amp can get some stage time at a growing festival  based at Audlem U?K

KHi john

Following our telecom

Ref: live stage _slot at 2013
Just thought I would put a feeler out to the Audlem
Festival 2013.I AM a member of a well established and very cool....
songwriter website Bandamp.com Please check the site out
As u can see it is a writhing hotbed of songwriters /producers/performers
I think It might be possible for the site to provide a 2 -3 hour live set provided by uk or eu members that will please  your festival audience 
So this is an opening communication
And.".....
I will forward this email to bandamp.com....
For reaction!!!

UPDATE

tonite had a telephone conversation with one of festival organisers
He advises....
they are very positive and nodding heads ++++ for a BANDAMP stage
but the proposal still needs to go before the organising commitee to give it a final confirmation
so watch this space ..........

Im pretty excited cos Im sure they will say yes!!!!
call it intuition!!!

best thing i can do is find out when they are having the meeting ....then let you know

in the meantime ,,,,,,

as much interest as you can show on this thread

as i will tell the festival organisers to check us out ..... i think thats fair

It seems they still didnt schedule the next festival yet (like they said on facebook "Should we do it in 2013?")
Bad area. Next airport is Birmingham 2 hours flight with prop and then apprx 90km by car.  On the wrong side!!!! The only airline is Flybe. A lowcost airline for around 150 Euro two way flight (economy).
International guests should land in London and then they have about 270km by car. or train?
What about a meet in (the near of) London?

Good area..... Because the festival is there
Its growing every year
free stage pa and lighting
possibly free accomodation .....
nearest major international airport Manchester
pick up and drop back would be arranged by me ... free
and best of all its nowhere near london

I can facilitate this idea ....... but cannot help with resourcing any other locations in uk except possibly in North East UK (Newcastle area)

anyway its all heresay till green light from the festival .....
but it will happen.

Mnachester doesnt sound bad. Even British Airways may land their aircrafts there.
Did I tell you that I don't like fly by plane? Need someone to hold my hand during the flight. haha.
If you have a date please tell us. Maybe we can have a nice weekend together with some other ampers?!

Hmm .. Friday the 24th of May 2013 you say ?
Sounds good ... but what happened to the end of the world and life as we know it .. Jim ? .... did I miss it ?

Sound like I'm going in any case ... whether I want to or not ! 

OK! Audlem ... Cheshire, close to  Crewe ... lots of trains at Crewe.
Liverpool seems closer as the crow flies, and Liverpool is accessible and cheep from Amsterdam ... as EasyJet flys.

A small and growing festival sounds excellent ... I'll have to have a word with Eavis ... see if we can organise the bandAMP stage again ... sorry, thinking ahead of myself again.

I will have to discuss this with my band(s), I know they can be stubborn spoilsports seing only bears on the road while at the same time whining and complaining about wanting more gigs.. blahblah

But it's next year so that should give them plenty of time to mentally prepare.

I know I'm interested myself. I'll check with the others.

cheers

what about individuals,, no way I could get  my band over there right now.  but .. I  mght be able to swing a ticket if someone could put me up,, Or they let you stay in a tent at the festival... I'd need some kind of backline amp,  cost of shipping my stuff would be pretty high I think.

Edit: Rountrip cost for me.. around $1000.00 US, or797.477 eu  That's into London,( Heathro?) not sure
could I catch a ride , or is it better to lease a car ?

youve seen my pm by now I hope

subject to confirmation....

AS U come so far
and this counts for all bandamper...performers
accomodation could hopefully be free for all
man u can all stay with me ..... I rent a place for the festival!!!

amps/backline P.A etc provided free

getting to Audlem is just a transport thing ..........
Im sure I can get any body that wants to fly into the UK to the gig free too
and back to their flights

the only thing that will not make this happen is poor organisation

so .......... ok thats down to me

loads of work between now and then

Please ... IF you are interested in coming let me know

ON THIS THREAD

Thanks
