Early entry will be available to those people who register prior to the event, people who want to help out set up and exhibitors at the guitar gallery are especially welcome.

First band is on at 2 pm and all event goers must clear out by 12.30 am (anyway you will have somewhere else to go-see below)

There is a bar in the venue, which will be serving beers at student prices (cheap), plus there should be some food available. There are some nearby food places too.

This year we are charging for entry

£5 Entry
£3 with valid current NUS card

All profits from this year's Jemfest go to NSPCC (UK Registered Charity Number 216401) and MANF.
www.nspcc.org.uk
www.vai.com/MANF/index.html

REGISTRATION
So to register:

Email me ([email protected]) the following:

Name
Address (and name and address of anybody you are bringing with you)

Guitars and/or gear you are bringing. It would help for organisation purposes if you include the serial numbers of your guitars.

Like last year the names and addresses will only be used for purposes of Jemfest, for example last year I used the addresses to post prizes to the winners.

There are no limits on numbers of people attending Jemfest UK this year.
Please try and register by September 30th. Sooner is better for me and my organisation!


ACCOMODATION
If there is enough demand I will look into getting a group rate in a hotel near the venue-email me if you will need or are interested in this.

TRAVEL AND VENUE LOCATION
The venue is here:

The entrance to the union is in Keyworth St (under the arrow).

If you have any particular travel questions email me and I will tell you the best way to get from Heathrow, Gatwick etc. Kings Cross, Euston, Waterloo to the venue.
Are you flying? let me know

PARKING
Please email me if you want to bring your car as I will be able to get a few FREE parking places for people (provided you give me all the info South Bank Uni need). These places will be in a locked parking area with CCTV and security.

GUITAR GALLERY
Will be bigger better and brighter than last year and will be set up 12pm-3 pm. Tell me what you are bringing when you register.

JEMFEST JAM SESSION
There will be a jam session for everybody who wants to have a blast. This will be after the headliner at about 10 pm (after everybody has had a few ales). Please email if you want to get up and do one song to a backing track or would be interested in getting up and jamming so I have an idea of numbers.

THE RAFFLE
Where would Jemfest be with out a raffle! All profits from the sale of raffle tickets will benefit NSPCC and MANF.

Prizes so far are:

A guitar from Brian at UniversalJems www.universaljems.com

A guitar from Pete Davies at www.superiorsound.co.uk

More goodies to come...

More raffle prizes:
Signed goodies from Steve Vai (I hope)
Steve Vai stickers
T-shirts
CD's
A Jemfest USA 2003 t-shirt signed by all the artists who played at Jemfest USA (Jon Finn, Eric Sands, Rob Balducci, Kirk Slossar etc.)
and more goodies to follow


To enter the raffle you will need to buy a raffle ticket on the day or in advance. Raffle tickets are £5 each.

JEMFEST 2003 LONDON UK T-SHIRTS
We will have Jemfest UK t-shirts on sale. T-shirts will be £10 each.

We will also have Jemfest T-shirts from UK 2001, USA 2002, UK 2002 and USA 2003.

Profits from the sale of the t-shirts will go to NSPCC and MANF.

JEMFEST COMMERCIAL SPONSORS
I am very glad to announce that the PA and sound engineering for Jemfest UK (for the third year running) will be provided free of charge by the most excellent

Pete Davies
Superior Sound Services
http://www.superiorsound.co.uk


I hope to have more to come soon!


OTHER STUFF
For a small fee we will be selling some toast/sandwiches covered in Honey from Steve Vai's bees!
(Bread and butter will be less illustrious coming from Tesco's)

So for the complete experience you can sit back with a drink from the bar, next to your raffle ticket, in your Jemfest 2003 shirt eating Steve Vai honey and watching the bands!!

PRE-JEMFEST EVENT
Friday night October 10th piss-up in the 'Intrepid Fox' in Soho, followed by blood shots all round in 'Garlic and Shots' and then a rock night club later too if you are up for it!. if you want to come I will email you directions-tell me when you send me your registration email.

POST-JEMFEST EVENT
If you havent had enough ROCK!! for one day then at 11.30-midnight we shall all be off to a fantastic rock night club in Soho called 'Gossips' which has a cheesy 80's rock and metal night-as featured in some previous UK jemjam piss-ups. The club closes at 3.30 am so there is plenty of time for rock, beer, and scantily clad chicks!

OTHER JEMFEST EVENTS
After Jemfest on October 12th, if the weather is good I will be happy to organise the Jemfest Thames boat trip and walking sight-seeing tour (with visits to pubs).
There may well be a chance for Jemfest goers to visit some of the London area sights e.g. Windsor Castle, Legoland Windsor, London Eye etc.
In the week after Jemfest there may be a few Jemfest related gigs-more info coming soon!

CREW and HELPERS
I have already had some great help from Adrian Foden, Paul McCrone, Pete Davies, and Jerry Egerton.
If you want to help out on the day let me know, we need:
people to be on the door to sort out admission,
help Adrian with the guitar gallery,
people to help with stage set up and band changeovers,
raffle ticket and t-shirt sales,
you know the kind of thing!
If you are doing any of these things you wont miss any of the action!

There is still more stuff to be added to stay tuned and see you in October!!

So there you go, if I have missed or overlooked something then let me know.

Best wishes

Simon

and as if that wasn't enough to sell you on attending....

From across the pond...

KIRK SLOSSAR

will not be in attendance, although he wishes he was...he'd probably be a bad ambassador for the citizens of the US.
