We’d like to express a hearty THANK YOU to everyone who came to, played at, helped out with and generally believed in This Ain’t No Picnic 2008. The weekend passed by in an absolute blur and everything ran as smoothly as possible, for which we’re eternally grateful.
Eternal gratitude is extended to the following people: Rob Hampton and all the staff @ KCLSU, Joey Joe Joe Junior Shabadooey Mahon, Mark Lewis @ Elastic Artists, Charlotte Moss and her team of awesome stewards (Emily Andrews, Julia Lambeth, Lauren Ding. Ashley Scarfield, Kerri Manning), Jamie jATPmie Summers, the lovely people at WeGotTickets, Sarah Fox @ lastminute.com, Kev @ BSM, all the bands who contributed tracks to the festival CD, Aaron Connolly, Ben Lancaster, Dan Reeves, Tori @ Badmoon, Mike Diver, Sean Adams and all at DiS, The Dreaded Press, anyone else who wrote nice things about us (please send them to us if so!), Ricochet Ricochet for their awesome fanzine stall, the makers of Red Bull, Ryan Adams and, last but not least, Daniel Kelly for being the first person to buy a ticket.
A massive thank you to Simon Tyers for putting this programme together. Check out his blog, it gets the STA stamp of approval.
All festival artwork comes from the genius brain of Matt Littler. Check him out online at www.zikotown.com. If you run a label or a zine or something, give him some work. Not too much, though, as we want him back next time.
A super special thanks goes out to all the bands who’ve given up their time to come play for us, to help us put on a fantastic weekend of live music and raise some money for some good causes. A
super duper special thanks goes out to ALL OF YOU who came along and enjoyed the weekend.
We’ll be back next September for another weekend, but in the meantime we’ll be running some smaller events. The first of these will be taking place on December 14th at KCLSU again. It’s going to be a Christmas party to remember.
