    This year has been insane and, as such, it’s crazy to think we’re just over a month away from BOOK YER ANE FEST XII. Crazy, but true. This year marks ten years of Book Yer Ane Fest and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support over the last ten years.

    The inaugural Book Yer Ane Fest was held on November 15th 2008 in the back room of Mucky Mulligan’s in Perth with a Joey Terrifying and a whole bunch of our friends. To think that things have evolved to the point where it is a five-day, three-city celebration of DIY punk culture in solidarity with some of our community’s most vitally-needed services is something that continually blows our collective minds and, personally, isn’t something that I care to dwell on for too long, for fear of being overwhelmed by it all.

    We as a collective always endeavour to do our best to bring interested, compelling and satisfying line-ups to Book Yer Ane Fest. While acknowledging that we fall short of our ideals every day, through our collective action we aim to promote positive engagement, critical analysis and good times. While perhaps naive, our aim really is to spread joy. We hope that we manage to achieve this and that everyone has the best of times over Book Yer Ane Fest weekend. This is something that we spend our whole year working towards, our Wrestlemania, and, given how busy things have been this year, both “professionally” and “personally’, we’re looking forward to this year as much if not more than we have done in previous years.

    Abertay Student Centre is fully accessible with lift access to all levels and gender neutral bathrooms. It is with regret that Conroy’s Basement is not fully accessible due to the stairs and being situated in a basement. We apologise to our friends for whom this may provide difficulties, however, our bathrooms are gender-neutral. We thank Abertay Student Centre for their support in this endeavour.

    It’s been some ride. Thank you all for everything.

     

    This year, we’re very proud to be working in solidarity with the following groups;

    ADDACTION DUNDEE
    DUNDEE FOODBANK
    DUNDEE REFUFEE SUPPORT
    ROYAL LIFE SAVING SOCIETY
    YOUNG MINDS UK

    We are also very pleased to welcome our friends to the PUNK ROCK FLEA MARKET; Food Not Bombs Dundee, Artificial Womb. C. Gull, Leftfest, Vegan Actions North East, Sustrans, Debauchery Lee Designs, Radical Rebel DIY, Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, TNS Records, Roaming Vegan Baker, Team Beard Records, Gordon MacKenzie Photography, Samaritans, Shout Louder, The Curator Podcast and loads more, including the world famous BOOK YER ANE TOMBOLA.

    We’d also like to extend our deepest thanks to our friends Audiowave Soundhire, Dundee Music Studios and Rainbow Music for their support and graft in providing PA equipment, backline and labour over the weekend, we couldn’t do this without you. Much love and respect!

    DAY SPLITS

    Please be aware that the actual timetable of sets won’t be published until Book Yer Ane Fest weekend itself. We’d encourage everyone to get down early and support all of the bands. We promise you won’t be disappointed!
