Well we haven’t even reached the end of 2013 and yet most of TBFM’s calendar for next year is fully booked up with amazing events!
Between all the staff at TBFM we have reached well over the 1000 bands mark this year that we have seen, reviewed and interviewed and next year it gets even bigger.
As we announced yesterday TBFM will be part of the media team at Alt-fest, the first ever crowd funded alternative festival.
We kick off 2014 with a BANG! TBFM Factor starts on 5th January with 100 bands making it through to the knock out stages which lasts a gruelling 5 months with the winner being announced as TBFM turns 5!
In February we are teaming up for Winterfest with some really big names looking to join some up and coming bands for a one day event to really end the winter blues!
During February and March TBFM will be sponsors and judges of Gods of Rock at The Dog in Coventry. Teaming up for a second time we will this time be hosting rock, metal and alternative bands over 6 weekends with a massive £700 jackpot to the winner along with other prizes.
In March, it has become a tradition that we all head over to North Wales for Hammerfest and 2014 will be no exception so we hope to see friends old and new as we party through the weekend!
April we have a massive trip lined up. All we can say on this one is Northern Ireland are you ready for TBFM?
Also in April, open house party for one of our long standing listeners, Ceri Davies as he celebrates his Birthday at a gig in Cardiff with Fahran and Death Valley Knights on hand to entertain us all.
We all know what happens in May… TBFM 5th Birthday with 10 bands already announced and a couple more to sneak into the list, the late May bank holiday will be one hell of a party!
In June, TBFM head back to Wales for Hard n Heavy Fest around Mucka Jay’s Birthday for another fun weekend and we will also be attending another big event but we are not naming it yet!
Download is another big event and TBFM will have staff at this festival to interview bands, review and photograph. Of course, there will be plenty of boozing going on too!
Local to TBFM HQ will also be the Hinckley Music Festival which TBFM will once again be heavily involved with. The date is yet to be confirmed but it is believed to be Summer time.
July seems to be a quiet month on the front of things but we do have a couple of announcements still to make so watch out!
August will once again be one of the most hectic months in the TBFM calendar. Kicking off the month with a new event, yet to be announced but with TBFM involved in a big way. Following on from that we head to Bloodstock Open Air for a monster of a weekend. Lots of plans for TBFM on that one… keep watching!
As we have recently announced for August, TBFM will be part of the media team at Alt-Fest where we will be in association with the SOPHIE stage. Over 180 bands playing at this festival and so many TBFM favourites!
End of the month we hope to be announcing involvement in another 2 day event so we will hold off on that!
September and after a very hectic Summer we head into Autumnfest. Details on this soon!
October we will once again be heading up to the sunny shores of Glasgow for Highway to Hell 5 to support the best in new music as bands battle out to be playing at Hard Rock Hell 8.
Talking of HRH8, November and we will be there again. Who knows what bands will be playing? We will wait and see…!
December comes around again and its time to take a breath and check the bank balance… oh shit… its Christmas!!!
So, that is one hell of a year and that is just SOME of what we are announcing. Its an all year round music festival for us here at TBFM. We love the music and we love what we do.
