Hi folks,

Any takers from the UK-based NB contingent?


New mini-festival in Frome, Somerset seeking music journalists to

"Talking Musical Revolutions" will alternate between stories from music
journalists and DJ interludes.  The weekend includes independent
musicians and artists, debates and talks about the music business and
other topics, plus a Slow Media Movement launch and display throughout
the weekend.  Unfortunately we had a group pull out for this slot, so
needing to fill it quickly!
