    Full line-up to be confirmed after Bank Hol. Dave (the organiser) has some radio interviews coming up and we're hoping we may get a track of Nick's included. All locals keep an eye on the press too for mentions.

    *Someone* has put notices out on the Yorkshire Forum under Barnsley events, likewise the Sheffield forum. Don't know whether many look at them, but still...

    I just hope that seeing as the Levellers are doing a free festival the same day not that far away in Doncaster that there's not too much competition. But at least Chris will be there I'm sure!:)

    I'm sure the chances are great that if I want to see both Tom Hingley and Nick that they'll be on at exactly the same time but I'm willing to take that chance :m3: indeed, I will be joining Big Chris for the festivities plus there are at least 2 other friends I've convinced to come, and that's just the beginning :biggrin: WOOT!

    Don't know if anyone has caught any of the radio stuff that the BOMFest guys have been doing? but they've certainly well name-checked their headliner!:)

    Hope as many of as poss will be joining us for this. Should be a great day - the inevitable unpredictability of the weather permitting of course.

    Just popping in to say I may be going to BOMFest, just in the process of seeing who I can drag along.

    Have been in hiding for several months while writing MSc Thesis but it's nice to get out once in a while. Am likely to re-emerge properly in September.

    Excellent! Come say hello, I'll probably be near Big Chris (all 6'8" of him) so you can't miss us :biggrin:

    critch Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Yes, you should go!

    It's not terribly far to drive is it?

    Nick has the stage from 8.20 and will be off at 10.

    I can also tell you that there will be a CD available on the day with a track from all participating artists. So if you like some of the other bands playing, you might want to grab a copy (only 1000 being pressed). I think most will probably already have Nick's song! But if you're someone who wants a full collection of everything he's appeared on, well it'll be another to add.

    Meeting Point

    Looking at the layout, for those meeting people a good location point may be the Information Point. This is situated on the borders of Zones C,D & B, near enough in the centre and near the Acoustic Stage where Nick will be playing.

    Listen in to BBC Radio Sheffield tonight, 7 - 9pm, to hear more about BOMFest and what will be going on on Saturday.

    Just a word of warning to those travelling from further afield.

    The M1 is being closed from 9pm tonight between junction 36 and 37 in both directions. http://www.thestar.co.uk/news/Night-closure-for-new-M1.4303300.jp

    If you didn't know already those two junctions are the best ones for getting to BOMfest. Marvellous eh?

    Thanks, David. Closed till when? Have told Nick as it will affect him - but at least he'll have done the gig!

    Closed until 9am the following morning by the looks of things.
