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

It's all happening ...

Well, it's been a long day (not just because it's Jim's birthday though he was awake very early with all the excitement!) - it looks like we're going to have to make a festival again, as we've sold way over the first 100 tickets - the hot-line really was hot this morning!
So many nice comments about the new website (thanks Gordon @ sneakytrick who's had very little sleep lately because of us), so many people who have had a great time in the past and just want it all to happen again ... and a few who couldn't make the paypal thing work -sorry if that was you, we've been trying our best but sometimes the technology just won't.
It's been great talking to people today who I feel I know a bit having checked the whole mailing list last week - funny how names and addresses stay with you if you've got the sort of warped mind I have.
Anyway, home for birthday tea - we've had the cake already, which means we can't eat that!
