With October 28th fast approaching, it looks as if FF3 will be the busiest show to date. Tickets have been flying out the door (quite literally to places such as Chile, Brazil, South Korea and wait for this one…..China!!).The pre show party is now as good as sold out!! Thank you. For the main day , we have finally managed to come up with a suitable running order which we’re sure will appeal to everybody. Less bands, more stage time seemed to be the order of the day from the huge number of e mails we received, so bearing this in mind here’s the running order and stage times for FIREFEST 3 , October 28th

Doors Open : 12.15
NEXX : 1.00 - 1.45
TREAT: 2.05 - 3.00
WIG WAM : 3.20 - 4.20
FAIR WARNING: 4.40 - 5.40
BONFIRE: 6.00 -7.00
GOTTHARD : 7.25 - 8.35
WINGER : 9.00 - 10.30

Please note due to a music curfew at Rock City all stage times will be strictly adhered to so please be sure to make a note of what time your favourite band hits the stage. At the end of the show on Saturday night , if you feel like continuing the party a little longer ALL fans attending the FIREFEST show can enter The Rig downstairs and party away until 2.00am to the sounds of more quality melodic hard rock. As you leave the main room , make your way downstairs and into the Rig by taking the door to the right at the bottom of the stairs. ADMISSION to The Rig is FREE as long as you do not leave the building and re enter.

Merchandise : All bands appearing at the show will have a selection of merchandise available , cd’s , dvd’s , tee shirts etc. and these can only be purchased from the official merchandise desk located at the rear of the venue . You can also pick up your Firefest 3 event t shirts there. On the subject of t shirts , t shirts will be available for pre order on very shortly. We did have a small glitch with the shirts but they are due back from the manufacturers any day now. There will be 2 styles available, plain black short sleeve and two colour baseball style. Make sure to grab yours a.s.a.p. as there is a strictly limited run of 100 only shirts.

As you may know we are giving away a guitar (signed by all the bands appearing at FF3) in a free raffle on the day. Now, not only is the guitar a sweet piece of axe but courtesy of our good friends over at they have agreed to supply a top quality hard case to carry it home in. Now that’s one hell of a prize!!!

Cameras: Rock City have asked us to once again point out that the use of camcorders and/or mp3 recorders/mini discs etc. are strictly prohibited on the day, and people found using them will have the item confiscated and be ejected from the venue. You are however encouraged to bring along your camera to capture your favourite artists .

And for those of you who cannot make the show in person on the day ARFM led by the legend he is , Steve Price will be doing an outside broadcast from Rock City on the day with lots of music , interviews and news. Be sure to tune in to ARFM on the web at to catch it as it happens.

The PRE SHOW: With the event now almost sold out the running order for the pre show is as follows:

Doors Open :6.45 pm
Alibi :7.00 - 7.30
Newman :7.50 - 8.35
Bombay Black : 8.50- 9.40
Bad Habit 10.00 - 11.00

As soon as the live portion of the show is finished anybody who has attended the gig can remain in The Rig until 2.00am to party the night away to the very best in aor/melodic rock , but the best bit is (aside from Dave Reynolds being the quizmaster and a stack of great spot prizes , including yet another class guitar from those great people at which also includes a hard case) is the fact that we are having a promo night in the alcohol department. No I hear you cry, but sadly yes, all draught larger will cost only £1.50 ALL NIGHT and a double JD & Coke a princely £2 a shot!! Value for money or what!! Now as is the case with every pre show, the various members of bands playing the following day will be at the pre show and more than happy to say hello or pose for a photo , so far Bonfire, Treat, Nexx and Fair Warning will be in attendance so make sure you do say hello and extend a big Firefest welcome to them.

We would like to thank everybody who has supported the show thus far. It genuinely does look as if it will be very, very busy . For all the latest updates please log on to where the message board is waiting for your comments, good, bad or indifferent. We hope to see everybody in Nottingham on Oct 27th and 28th .
