BYAF VI Update

by writeyeranezine

*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!
