Dogstock 2012 : Here we go #1

Here we go again. Seriously, here we bloody go again.

Bigger (the Queens fault) and better than last year – yes I know we always say that but it genuinely is. We’ve had a scientist prove it and you can’t beat science.

Dogstock 2012 is Saturday June 2nd, Sunday June 3rd and Monday June 4th.

“A Monday finish?” – yes, a Monday finish. This is where our monarch starts to become involved. Lizzy Queen (to use her full name) is celebrating her diamond jubilee and thus our usual Dogstock bank holiday – end of May - has been moved to the beginning of June. Still, a MONDAY finish!? Well the bonus is HRH has slapped us a bank holiday Tuesday too! Lovely stuff!

Tickets, as per, will be £6 a day or £10 for the weekend. And what a weekend.

I'll be announcing bands on here and on the FB group over the next few weeks.

Here's your first lot:

Our Fold: Westhoughton behemoths turn up to headline their first Dogstock (really?). Tunes abound and party times are to be had. Keep your Saturday night free.

To The Bones: Bolton rock legends, fresh from going round the country punching people in the face the boys and girl return to close out Sunday night.

Jeremiah Ferrari: Remember this lot from last year’s Dogstock? 200+ people dancing in the rain? A real shame if you don’t. Currently becoming one of THE North West bands on the rise, get your dancing pants on and Monday night will be your time.

Arse Full Of Chips: Nottingham, so much to answer for. Saturday night with the Arse is surely going to be one other THE talking points of the fest. Offensive – possibly, brilliant – definitely.

Northern Souls: Fabulous soul and funk was just what the doctor ordered for last years ‘Stock. This year will be no different. THIS is dance music.
