Its nearly time for our third band announcement and we cannot wait to get this band out to you, these guys are incredible. They are going to bring a whole new dynamic to the festival sound, to say this band have rhythm is the understatement of the century.

It happens here first so keep a weather eye open on the "Whipman Playlist". Boom!!


10-04-13

An important message has to be put out there to you all, this music festival is going to be all about the bands and the music and although there will be grub and beverages there is no bar and therefore no alcohol at this event. Some of you may groan awwwgghh!! But it’s just the way it has to be, but trust me this event is not going to be a disappointment for any of you, the bands and musicians we have coming to play for you are awesome in their own right and the special guests well... I can’t tell you yet! If you have any doubts check out our website, Facebook page and twitter account, the bands are going to be announced every Friday and you will see just how good this day is going to be.

This year the Whipman Playlist going to be hosted by The Newlands Centre and we are hiring both of their halls to accommodate you all. It is happening on Sunday the 26th of May 2013 from 2PM-8PM which is also the same day as the Junior Ride-out and all participants of the ride-out will be given first dibs on tickets and we also hope the Prize winners will be announced during the festival. It is vital that we tie this whole event back to the Whipman Play and the Common Ridings that it was all born from.

You will also be glad to hear that we are hoping to organise a shuttle bus service between West Linton and Newlands that will run most of the day, it will be cheap to use and we want as many of you to use it as possible, it’s a greener way of getting you all there and there isn’t much parking, also we don’t really want to annoy all the parents in the area having to taxi you all there and back. Please keep an eye out for updates for this service as we really want it to be used!!!

So there you are the “Whipman Playlist” and we hope, if we can make it work this year then we can make it a firm, established, long standing Whipman event for years to come. Somewhere for young, up and coming bands from the area to ply their wares and be an event where you can all have a lot of fun...

Thanks, kind regards and spread the word
