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