Wet Dog will now be playing on Saturday nite at the Joint social club (show starts 8pm)

Headfall will now be playing on Friday nite at the Here gallery (show starts 8.30pm)

Attilla will now be playing on the Saturday nite at the joint social club (show starts 8pm
)

Hairport will also now happen on the Saturday at the Here shop (between 2pm - 6pm)

W e've had to cut down the open forum time at The Cube on Sunday. Instead, there will now be an open forum discussion group at the Here gallery between 4 - 6pm and 'open microphone' 15-minute slots at the Cube Cinema between 1 - 2.30pm). Both on Sunday.

go to schedule...


Among the rumoured impromptu performances to take place during the festival: Winston Echo, Debi Withers, Ray K, Sleeping States, The Ba Ba Trapedos...

the community champions fund (south west forum),
the here shop & gallery (everyone, but especially camilla),
the green leaf bookshop (especially melissa),
the cube cinema (especially mark)
dialect radio (especially mike)

Bring Yourself Fest is a free D.I.Y underground festival taking place in Bristol on Friday 3rd, Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th of September 2004.

It is a case of spontaneity, of interactivity, of you-and-me-kid-busting-loose. The festival will incorporate music and visual art and workshops and political agenda and dance parties and food. We encourage anyone with ideas to get in touch or to show up and shake some action!

click here for more about the festival and us...


We're planning to record as much of the festival as we can, but we need your help! Do you have a mini-disc or dictaphone or anything else you can use to record sound onto? Bring it along and record...

After the festival we will be putting together a live CD which you can purchase on the weekend (or at least you purchase the beautiful hand-made sleeve/envelope, put your name and address on it, and then receive tasty live goodies in the mail...). The CD's will be sold as a benefit for Cafe Mono and the Here shop & gallery for a donation of £5 - £10 (pay what you can afford).

Also, if you have a camera, take lots of pictures/video/super 8 and send us copies!!!


There is still space available for your distro/label/political campaign/fortune telling/swap meet. get in touch for more info... write us


Our line up is pretty jam packed, but we encourage anyone who wants to play as part of the festival to come and set up a show in the street, the park, someone's house... wherever! On the Sunday there will also be 'open microphone' slots at the Cube, where you can claim up to quater-an-hour to do your thing (1pm - 2.30pm); and an open forum disscussion group at the Here gallery (4pm - 6pm) ...bring it!

please write to us for all the answers...

Rosie's for Bring Yourself Fest:
some things you should bring to the festival... duct tape and an old t-shirt; any old noise-making toys which maybe you might wanna make into instruments; any ideas to start a band; anything you wanna talk about on the radio; some records if you wanna dj on a radio show or at a dance party; a sleeping bag; some cool old hardback books that you don't really know what to do with...


Let us know if you looking to catch a ride, or are able to offer car-seat space to bristol. Let us know and we'll try and put people in touch - or use the forum...

Aaron is obsessed with our forum, please make his day, go and use it so he's not all alone in there...you can use the forum to meet up with people/arrange travel plans etc. or just to gossip and stuff...


Speed-dating without the dating, just the speed! Or with the dating if you want, but whatever... This is what happens when you tell people to bring their own ideas to the festival...
