How to avoid the ‘Gig-Planner Blues’:  While every effort has been made to provide a comprehensive gig layout at the time of  uploading, shit can, and probably will still happen so we will update leading up to the festival as quickly as we can. It’s free, a festival and fun. Look for an old fashioned print copy hitting your fave SBF venue early next week but meanwhile …..


Note this download is a copy of the print version and won’t have any changes, hiccups or other stuff. Check website for any changes.
