Gigbeth announced – Things can only get better

As far as I know only rap granddaddies The Sugarhill Gang are confirmed for Gigbeth 2008, but the facebook group brings rumours of…

Argh! Maybe Peter Cunnah will be able to tell us what they’ve been up to, and how he’s stopped doing their big hit (please) as it’s tainted with Tony Blair.

Gigbeth 2008 is going on on the Friday 7th and Saturday 8th November throughout Digbeth — 10 venues across the weekend and a outdoor stage at Millennium Point. Tickets are priced at £15 for Friday, £18 for Saturday, or £25 for the entire weekend, available now from  (0121) 202 5000, but we’re betting more widespread soon.
Last year was brill, we really enjoyed it. Hope to do a myspace marathon with the line-up soon.

    Struggling with website – wondered how you could get to play at the festival. I am a local musician who has been playing in Birmingham in a band and as a solo artist. Be grateful if someone could let me know.

    Thanks Mo – does anyone know of anywhere we can get them without the booking fee?

    You could buy them (after a struggle with explaining what it was) from the Rotunda Tourist Office last year – can we this year?

    (oh and btw what does “ref=shit” in the url do? do I geta cut ;) )

    Hi bounder,

    Will send an email to the promoters for you, to see if there’s anywhere selling without booking fees and let you know…

    You’re observant aren’t you! Using the ref=shit to see if any of your hallowed users fancy a cheap ticket!
