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

A Sea of CDs
Well here we are at folkdevils mansions surrounded by boxes and packaging and exuding an air of mild panic but most of all looking forward to this year's festival. New town, new venue, new people in the audience and some great music. Too many good acts to pick out a particular one to recommend but Reem Kelani is a must see, especially after her stirring and emotional performance last time she was at Musicport. Back to it then, see you there.
