DASTARDS Tracks featuring on Music Websites

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

This week www.TextaTrack.co.uk have made STAYING OUT their featured single of the week. Text a Track is a great, simple music download service which is chart registered. All tracks £1. Simple.

Plus LONELY INBETWEEN is at #10 on the www.TourDates.co.uk chart. It has also just been voted into the ‘Green Room’ at www.FameGames.com

S0 – whilst sometimes we think that the UK music press is ignoring us – some Music sites are LOVING US. (and we love them back!) 

Fahrenheit Festival Cancelled

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

We’ve just heard that the Fahrenheit Festival has been cancelled. We’re gutted – obviously. This is the message on the Fahrenheit site:

Dear all,

It is with regret that the Fahrenheit Festival 2009 due to take place this Friday 7th, 8th and 9th of August has been forced to reschedule.

We are all very sorry for any inconvience caused but due to last minute circumstances beyond our control we have had to take this action now as to avoid the participants of the festival any further disruption. Building on the many partnerships and collaborations that define Fahrenheit we will be back to you soon with details of a number of exciting events and opportunities for unsigned bands and artists.

Many Thanks.
The Fahrenheit Festival Team

 Presumably it was poor ticket sales but it’s very sad as it was an interesting idea – to use independent bands who wouldn’t be soaking up huge costs in fees – leaving more money in the pot to promote the event.

Anyway – here are DASTARDS at their last festival (CHAGSTOCK ’09) with FLASHLIGHTS
