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!
I think that’s pretty much the story! You can get part one of the download compilation here. Will have part two up by the end of the week, just as soon as I can find a some spare time!
I hope everyone has an amazing weekend and that lots of people come out to join us for what will hopefully be a celebration of all that is positive and best about our community. Just please don’t ask about BYAF VII yet!
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!
First ever solo acoustic show from former Pensioner man, most recently seen behind mixing consoles for the likes of Kaddish and Bonehouse.
That’s it; 3 days and 2 nights of punk/hxc/emo/indie/acoustic/ska/screamo madness in Dundee to benefit Safe-Tay and the projects that they support. This year the money will be going towards buying a new lifeboat for Tayside Mountain/Water Rescue. Hopefully you’ll join us for what should be an amazing weekend for a great cause that is close to all of our hearts.
