Good news from the EWOB Festival

Liz Meyer and the Stichting EBMA Voorthuizen report:

We can promise you a grass field for camping - not the same one, but nice, soft grass. Yay! Please tell your friends. The EWOB Team is working very hard to ensure your comfort at the European World of Bluegrass Festival 2011. Visit the EWOB website for all festival info!

Band application extension to 11 December 2010

We said that no extension past 1 Dec. would be possible this year, but personal circumstances make it necessary. Liz spent ten days in Germany for a cancer checkup, too busy in the hospital to deal with all the e-mails, and then got food poisoning at the airport on the way home. 'Things are looking up' now, but we are running ten days late and would like to share that extra time with bands that have not had a chance to apply for EWOB 2011.

Final deadline to apply for a showcase at EWOB 2011 will be Saturday 11 December 2010. Your demos must be posted by this time. The festival dates will be 2-3-4 June 2011. The EWOB website home page, center column, has all the links you'll need for application info and Musician/Band FAQ. Please read instructions carefully and get your applications in as soon as possible!

Thank you to all the terrific bands who've been busy sending in their application materials. We wish you much success, and hope to see you at EWOB 2011!
