    [FONT=&quot]NEWS FROM THE BEST DANCE MUSIC FESTIVAL SITE IN THE UK


    with all night music and outdoor stages playing longer and louder than anywhere else


    It's set to be another legendary Waveform Weekend...and kind to the planet too!


    Festival News From on Site..


    Hi folks, the news is good despite all the recent weather! Stages are going in. Marquees are going up. Get ready for the wave!


    Our site is holding up well thanks to the nature of the chalk landscape we are on, which drains rapidly.


    There is metal trackway at the gate and our capable crew are confident we're prepared for any weather contingency.


    Our car park is immediately off of the main road, so its not difficult to get into, or out of, and the site is still very much green and pleasant.


    And the weather forecast for the weekend is sunny!


    The online ticket shop at www.waveformfestival.com closes at 6pm Thursday.


    All tickets purchased from now until then will be held on the gate.

    [B]WAVEFORM FESTIVAL[/B]



    SEPTEMBER 12-14th – Liddington Warren Farm, nr.Swindon,



    10 minutes from J15 of M4





    the sustainable dance music festival • www.waveformfestival.com





    Last year Waveform established itself as an award wining, environmentally friendly event with an incredible line up of cutting edge dance music. This year, it’s back with an all night music license and even more musical variety.

    This years’ Waveform will be held at Warren Farm, Liddington, Wilts, SN4 0EB, close to the M4 with easy access from Bristol and London, but far enough away from any neighbours to mean that we can extend our music policy around the clock!



    SIX STAGES




    With a line up that includes Eat Static, System 7, Gaudi, Far Too Loud and many more, the Main Stage and Gaia Chill areas return, but are joined by a vastly expanded Trance Arena.

    hosted with Tribe Of Frog will host some of the finest international DJ’s and live acts around amongst incredible sound and decor.

    The Breaks Stage, featuring Archangel Breaks, will return with additional electronica & dubstep to keep all tastes in quality dance music happy.

    We will feature psy trance, progessive, breakbeat, dub, reggae, dubstep, glitch, and much much more

    ***New addition***- VISUAL BLISS will be bringing their high standard of production to create our SECOND DANCE TENT- a space for progressive, minimal, funky house and electro sounds.

    The Green Village with its solar and wind powered CAT’S CRADLE stage, will expand into a whole area. Powered exclusively by wind and sun it will feature workshops, a kids area, a green innovations area, enchanted gardens, sauna, spa and solar showers and much more.




    MAIN STAGE line up so far… Look out for some surprises…coming very soon

    [FONT=&quot]Alternative Accommodation Options at Sunrise this year


    In 2008, Sunrise will host a range of alternative living accommodation options for the discerning festival-goer! No longer is it necessary to spend your days in a leaky (not that it will rain!) tent. Instead why not choose a life of luxury and book into one of our alternative options? At Sunrise Celebration 2008, we will have the following options available. More to be added soon.


    Pod Pads: - A real, stylish and unique alternative to traditional camping. Pod Pads are built from wood and come fitted with carpeting, interior lighting and internal and external locks. They are weatherproof, soundproof, secure, safe and cosy. Ideal for storage as well! Pod Pads can stand alone or as part of a terrace - so you can stay alongside all your mates!
    www.podpads.com


    Tipis and Yurts - The opportunity to try the Tipi and Yurt experience is available through Hearthworks, coordinators of the Global Tipi Village. Tipis and Yurts are traditional nomadic tents, that benefit from spacious interiors, an open fire or wood burning stove, and optional furnishings. Great for families or groups of friends. For details of booking visit www.hearthworks.co.uk


    Caravans - Caravans are perfect for giving you the comforts of home in a field. Those available will range from two to six berth, ideal for families, and will have the added option of an electric hook-up. These will be available to hire in advance of the event. For enquiries please contact simon@conceptproductsltd.co.uk

    ------------


    We are currently looking at including Myhabs as well.


    Has anybody got any preferences as to what other accomodation options they may wish to see in the future? I have an inkling that people will be looking for increasingly more robust options than nylon tents to stay in. Hopefully the age of the disposable tent will soon be over...


    One option we are looking at is bespoke design cabins - either flat-pack build or based permanently on site with wood burners, beds, etc. Would you be interested in such accomodation? Do you prefer nylon tents or will you be looking for other accomodation?
