NME goes on 3 day bender
The newly tweaked and scrubbed up NME (a music journal printed on paper) have announced the first ever NME Weekender on 5-7 November 2010 at Pontins Holiday Park, Camber Sands, Sussex.
Following a performance at Reading and Leeds as the re-united Libertines, Pete Doherty will be bringing current band Babyshambles to headline the Friday night. The band are currently recording new material for their third album to be released in 2010 which could be unveiled at the NME weekender. Topping the bill on the Saturday night will be Brighton based quartet British Sea Power. Following on from the success of 2008’s ‘Do You Like Rock Music?’ and last years film score ‘Man of Aran’ British Sea Power have just completed the recording of their fifth album. Also on the line-up are indie synth-rockers Citidels, London buzz-band Chew Lips, The Crookes - a quartet named after a suburb of Arctic Monkeys home town Sheffield and Goldhawks who have just released debut single ‘Where in the World’ on 29 March. There are many more bands to be announced soon.
Weekend tickets go on sale at 9am, Friday 2nd April 2010 priced from £95, based on a group of seven people sharing a seven-berth apartment. Tickets include two nights accommodation and entrance to all arenas as well as free car parking. A deposit scheme is in place to allow fans to pay for their tickets in installments. After an initial deposit of £40, the balance can be settled by September 1st which means live music fans can enjoy the summer festivals and still have an amazing weekend of live music to look forward to in November.
