Welcome to the Musicport Festival Blog
As tickets go on sale for Musicport 2011 – the 12th festival, the 4th year at Bridlington and aiming to be the biggest yet - we’ll blog our way through the Musicport year, bringing you news of bookings, ideas and developments as the line-up takes shape, and a glimpse of the lives and minds of the Musicport staff and crew. We’ll be looking for thoughts and comments from you too – please join in, wherever you are!
You may have noticed that this blog was rather neglected during last year's festival. This was because we took it upon ourselves to 'live tweet' the event. Follow us @musicportfest or on #musicport you can also find us on facebook

The Exodus Has Begun
It's a good job there isn't a toll road between Whitby and Bridlington! As Jim says below, two van loads left Whitby last night, several more have gone today and I have it on good authority that Folk Devils CD stall and the catering department are just about packed and ready to go. The juggernaut leaves Sandgate shortly! I'm not leaving until tomorrow morning so am currently surrounded by piles of clothes, shoes and various accessories trying to make those all important 'what to wear' for the stage decisions... still, I have managed to dye my roots and arrange a Guinea Pig sitter so progress is being made. Things I have to remember include display boards, ground cumin and an Ikea cheese grater... it's going to be some festival!
