Book Yer Ane Fest IX is only six weeks away and we’re beginning to get pumped and maybe a little nervous with excitement!
We have over 50 acts playing across the weekend and are very excited to once again be hosting both pre and post BYAF shows in Glasgow and Edinburgh respectively, as well as two post-show club nights at Buskers on the Friday and Saturday nights.
There will also be early shows at Cerberus Bar on both Saturday and Sunday, running from 12noon until 2pm, at which point doors will open at Buskers. Full details of these shows to follow. A full programme of events will be published in the next few weeks.
Weekend Tickets are available online here and in person at Groucho’s in Dundee.
Day tickets will be available on the door while stocks last.
In the meantime, we are delighted to bring you this year’s day splits!
