if you have a similar system and would like to be listed here, we'd love it if you got in touch. This is especially useful for passing on events that we can't do - being able to pass on a request to a more local system would be ideal.

Acts who have played through our system include:

Seize the Day, Robin Williamson, Taxi Pata Pata, Will Hodgson, Fiona Davidson, Kangaroo Moon, Daughters of Elvin, Chris Wood, Monica Stadler, Jim Faupel.
