Latest Updates - Updated Jan 1st 2013.
Film footage of Jonathon Kelly in concert is needed as there seems to be nothing in the vaults anywhere, contact his management if you can help.....
We are hoping to add in the next few months , years , millenia, the next life .....
But to do this we need MORE info on these events. You can help by Contacting us on these festies and any others you attended.
Please note- this site grows by donations of material by its viewers, it may take a long while for short comments to be added to pages due to the size of the site and the amount of new info that is coming in. We usually wait until we have enough comments available to make it worth while to post new updates on this page .
All we can say is -be patient , it will be added eventually .If it doesn't appear after a few months a gentle reminder would be appreciated, rather than a demand that your ten word comment that really adds nothing new be inserted immediately. Our brains are getting older , so we forget things on occasions. Also, as the site now contains over 19,300 items , thousands of pages and many sections , its getting REALLY hard to keep it organised and updated regularly let alone do any research to find new material and information ......
Another thing, we have frequently been asked to set up forums on festivals. Apart from the fact that we just don't have time to moderate or set up any forums , given the experiences we have on trying to find any useful info on most forums, ( a topic starts and then gets way off topic whilst good posts get buried waaaaaaaay under the dross ) we prefer to add the info people send to us manually so we avoid the pointless off topic and list nazi type stuff one always gets on any forum. We want our info to be relevant , as accurate as possible , easy to find and to the point - we hope it is :-)
