  1. Hi All,


    Just a wee update - going well thus far, venue has been very receptive to ideas and I'm in the process of booking a number of bands.


    Stage has been organised and hired, wrist bands have been ordered and some sponsors agreed with!




    Any bands keen on playing, any acoustic acts keen on playing, any sponsors keen on sponsoring - please get me at aberdeenindiefest@gmail.com


    Cheers xxx

  2. Meeting with Exodus next week to discuss. Think my plan is to try and do it in one day, rather than spreading it across 2 days/nights. Exodus has the potential of having an acoustic stage downstairs in Triple Kirks. I've also contacted a couple of more well-known-outside-Aberdeen bands who would be interested in playing the gig.


    Also going to take a wander through town today on my lunch hour to see if I can scope out any more potential venues. I'd absolutely love to do something in Enigma but there's not much I can do there unfortunately, plus noise levels would be an issue (according to a very helpful woman at the Council I spoke to yesterday). Same goes for Union Terrace Gardens.


    Judging from the feedback on here, from bands and from the general music-loving population of Aberdeen, there's a decent demand for this. So it's happening.

  3. Venue suggestions welcome.


    My thoughts on the 'standard' Aberdeen venues are as below;


    Tunnels - decent location, 'tried and tested' venue for mini-fest, decent price.

    Drummonds - not suitable for what I want to put on.

    Lemon Tree - little more expensive, decent location, 'outside area', excellent standard etc.

    Downstairs - potentially too small.

    Cellar - definitely too small.


    I'd also like a 'think outside the box' type venue, just not sure where?

  4. I kind of fancied doing it on Halloween to be honest, might get more people. I wouldn't want to clash or step on the toes of the Wake the Deen guys but haven't seen anything for Hallodeen this year?


    Also, if I did it on one day, all day, it could be a double edged sword in the sense that people would be hungover on the 1st from Halloween.....
