BYAF VI Update

*edited Wednesday 28th November*

Book Yer Ane Fest VI kicks off on Friday night at Kage Nightclub in Dundee for three days of DIY punk/hardcore/emo goodness to raise money for Safe-Tay and the causes it supports; this year Tayside Mountain/Water Rescue.

I think we’ve got an absolute beast of a line-up this year, like every other year! BYAF is the weekend that our collective works towards every year and is definitely one of our annual highlights. I expect that this year will be no exception. Last year was insane, this year has already been a banger and, for me, this is the perfect way to round things out.

Before Friday, however, we have a PRE-BYAF show at Tin Roof in Dundee this coming Thursday. Thank you so much to the collective for opening their doors to us at such short notice and massive props to Dan Faichney for going to bat for us.

All individual shows/clubs will be £10 on the door. You can get physical weekend tickets from Groucho’s Records and Cerberus Bar in Dundee. You can also get weekend tickets online at the Make-That-A-Take page here. Weekend tickets are £20 and gets you all 3 days of shows and 2 club nights until 2.30am. Pace yourself! Also, bands listed not necessarily in order!

Book Yer Ane Fest VI – Day Splits

Book Yer Ane Fest VI is only a few weeks away and we’re all getting pretty excited about it, mixed with the usual trepidation, fear and nervousness about whether or not all the bases have been covered. Hopefully most of them have been by now. One thing that hasn’t been addressed, however, is which bands are playing on which days. This post shall seek to remedy this.

As usual, things are subject to change, especially with so many bands involved. I’ll only be covering day splits; set times and running order will be announced on the day of the shows themselves, with the exception of Oi Polloi headlining on the Friday night and Vic Galloway‘s DJ set thereafter.

I’m stoked on this year’s line-up. Hopefully you will be too!

Weekend tickets are on sale for £20 here.

All individual days will be £10 on the door, so don’t sleep on the cheap weekend tickets. Physical tickets can also be purchased at Groucho’s Records and Cerberus Bar in Dundee.

Again, bands not in order of appearance! Running order to be announced on the individual days.
