Sponsorship Survey

By on Sunday, 12th April 2009 at 5:33 pm

A slight break from normal proceedings here at TGTF, and a quick plea for some help from you, our readers.

Some of you may be aware that I’m currently in my third and final year in my degree, and am working on my final year project, which is based upon sponsorship in the music industry.

As a part of this, I want to find out what your views are – I’m sure you all have some strong views on what you like or don’t like when you go to a gig or festival, so if you’d take 10 minutes out of your day to help me out that would be greatly appreciated.

We don’t collect ANY personal data (other than your rough age and sex), so be safe in the knowledge that you’re COMPLETELY anonymous.

Thank you for your interest, unfortunately this survey is now CLOSED


The King Blues / April and May 2009 UK Tour

By on Wednesday, 18th February 2009 at 9:18 pm

King Blues (side)The King Blues have announced a tour for April and May around the UK’s Student orientated venues.

Hailed as “The most exciting live band in Britain.” by Kerrang, but when it comes to describing their music The King Blues are a hard to pigeonhole semi-acoustic punk/rap outfit who sound like the Pogues one minute, the Streets the next, or like one of those US pop-punk bands who emerged in the wake of Green Day. Then again, sometimes they might sound like a skiffle band or a ska band, at others like an agit-prop electro-rock act like Asian Dub Foundation.

Tickets are on sale now for all dates, costing about £8 each it seems.
