As many bands know, we have a general rule to help keep the festival diverse and fresh, we don't tend to book the same bands two years in a row. This avoids rolling out the same line-ups and gives new and different bands the chance to play the festival. We are interested in supporting the scene, promoting positive ethics and helping charities raise important funds for their causes.
We want to find a way also, to thank bands and their members that support the festival through their attendance, because they share our Common Ground in actively supporting the scene as well as contributing directly to our chosen charities.
So, if you are in a band and attend the festival, hand in a CD/7"/recording at the gate, with a note or drawing explaining why you want to play the festival to a member of the Common Ground Collective and we will make your band priority consideration for inclusion on the bill at future Common Ground events.
Look forward to seeing you in September! Spread the word! Support the scene! Peace, love and punk!
