Subject: Llive blog of Musicport Festival
From: GUEST,Kate Longmate

I know some Mudcatters do visit Musicport and we have a few Mudcat friendly artists, so I thought this might be if interest here!

Only one week to go until Musicport lands in it's new home at Bridlington Spa and there is a shiny new festival blog at http://musicportfestival.blogspot.com

We thought a blog would be a fun way to record the festival and a way to have an interactive memoir by festival staff, performers and audience... we intend (mobile and internet signals pending!) to bring you live photos and coverage of the festival as it unfolds and if you are there you are welcome to join in!

We will doubtless add more and post reflections after the event too and we hope that people will join us and share their photos and memories, creating a record that we can all look back on in the run up to the 2009 festival!

'So, how can I become an author?' I hear you ask... If you want to join us and blog your way through Musicport, you need to to be added as an 'author' simply send an email to musicportblog@hotmail.co.uk and then follow the instructions in the email invitation you receive. It may take us a little while to respond to requests, but we will add you as soon as we can! If you simply want to comment on pictures and stories already posted, you can do so by clicking on the word 'comments' at the bottom of each post.

Of course if you can't make it to Bridlington, you can follow the festival's progress over the weekend and whet your appetite for 2009!

See you all in Brid' or on the blog!

Bridlington is on the East Yorkshire coast, 20 miles south of Scarborough and 45 miles east of York... the Spa which houses the entire festival is located in the old town right on the water front and has a very picturesque view of the old harbour.

For more details about the line up etc see the website at: http://www.musicportfestival.com

So just two days to go until kick off at Musicport... the weather forecast is dry and sunny, perfect for a stroll along the prom and some fish and chips between acts and Bridlington's old town harbour will look beautiful in the autumn sunlight...

Anticipation is hotting up and it seems that the artists and crew are looking forward to the festival just as much as the audience!

Meanwhile the blog http://www.musicportfestival.blogspot.com is taking shape and there is still time to sign up as an author.

So, if you haven't already booked, what are you waiting for?! Details of full line up and tickets at: http://www.musicportfestival.com

See you Friday!

Looking forward to it Kate - just returned from holiday and a bit shattered but I'm sure we'll get in the mood as sson as we enter the building!

Just hoping the atmosphere will be as fantastic as at Whitby. Can't wait to see Reem Kelani again she was certainly one of the highlights a few years ago

I'll say hello if I catch you at a quiet moment!

Joe

Hi Joe,

We will do our utmost to bring the Whitby atmosphere with us, in fact, I'm here packing it now!

Come and say Hello whether it's quiet or not! Would be nice to put a face to the name finally!

I can't wait to see Reem again either and I'm really looking forward to Mor Kabasi too... and everyone else!

Cheers,

Kate.

Thanks to all who visited the cloudbase room, we thought it a great
success, especially Friday night the atmosphere was fantastic.
Security and staff were really friendly and the sound was better
than the main room. Bigup to me bezzy mate Slim for the beautiful
images and projections and a big apology from me for the projections
in the main room. The sound guys took down my screens down and the new
projectors worked only in grey and kind of white. Oh well... still
got some very kind feedback. I thought the building was a great success and really look forward to next year. Mike.x
