I would like to duck'n'dive round a few venues....not sure if hauling my gear with me will allow that though.

I'm sure if you popped down to the Tunnels after you've played you'd be allowed to store your stuff there for a bit?

I might try that. I was knackered last week, carrying an electric guitar and a bag full of pedals, mikes and leads from Peacock's to Holburn St. Weaving in and out of marauding herds of neds & nedettes didn't make it any easier, either.

Aye, looking forward to all this. Will be great to see Aberdeen's venues filled with decent live music on a Saturday night. We (Weather Barn) are headlining The Tunnels 2, but before that I hope to nip about and catch as many acts as possible...

Not long now folks! Great lineups on each stage so come along and support all the bands. You can download a free programme here with band details and timings. Times are approximate but we're hopefully be sticking to these as closely as possible but get down early for the opening acts. You can also download the Aberdeen Events Oxjam podcast at www.aberdeenevents.co.uk or searching for Aberdeen Events on itunes.

Tickets for the festival are onsale for 5 at One Up and www.wegottickets.com and allow unlimited access across all venues and free entry to our aftershow party at Tunnels 2 once all of the bands have finished.

Tough choices! Eric Euan or The Scandal Extracts? Le Reno Amps or Kitchen Cynics? Will catch Carson Welles and Katerwaul at least...I quite fancy an excuse to get to the Blue Lamp for a pint too. Think I'll give Drummonds a miss though

I haven't seen Kitchen Cynics yet, so will try and catch him and TSE too.

I fear that we will be on at the same time as Cuddly Shark. I hope that the stage times are staggered between Tunnels so as to avoid overlap.

You'll be on after Cuddy Shark, the stages are going to be staggered as much as possible and with curfews Tunnel 2 will be running later than Tunnel 1. There'll be overlap with bands but hopefully the way things work out there will be bands playing while the other is setting up, never that easy mind you!!

Final call for tonight though, will be great to see filled out venues so please come down early and support all the bands and Oxjam. 5 entry with wristbands allowing unlimited access to all venues and the aftershow in Tunnels 2. Last minute tickets can also be bought at One Up and www.wegottickets.com.
