With the forthcoming releases by Ten and In Faith due on Rocktopia Records, there will be an advance listening party on Thursday October 23rd at The Royal Suite, the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Wollaton Street, Nottingham – and you are invited.

Both In Faith and Ten will be in attendance to sign albums and chat about any aspects of the song writing, recording, or indeed the entire process of making ‘There’s a Storm Coming’ and ‘Albion’ as well as future plans the bands may have. This is a FREE event, however it is LIMITED TO 200 people only, and admission will be on a first come first served basis. However we are not asking you to queue outside, if you wish to attend we simply wish you to e mail us at kieran@rocktopiarecords.com and we will confirm your entry by return E-mail.

In Faith will of course have the first copies of ‘There’s a Storm Coming’ on hand , so you can grab a CD and be one of the first to have a copy anywhere in the world. Of course seeing as you will be hanging out with us listening to some amazing new music, and the fact that we always like to do cool stuff, anyone purchasing an In Faith CD on the night will not only have it autographed by the band but we will also give you stickers, guitar plectrums and an official In Faith photo. These items are one off limited edition promotional items so they could be quite collectable in future years. Not to mention we will also have some In Faith t- shirts to give away on the night.

Ten will of course be speaking about all things ‘ALBION’. The album can be best described as “the one Ten fans have waited for” and we guarantee you will not be disappointed. 10 stunning tracks of trademark TEN riffs and melodies wrapped up in a production to die for. Ten of course will also be introducing the new boys, guitarists Dann Rosingana and Steve Grocott, so please be sure to say hello to the guys and welcome them to the fold. Now the IMPORTANT bit. ‘ALBION’ is slated for a November 21st release, however we will have a limited quantity of CDs on hand at the listening party where you can get your copy almost a MONTH IN ADVANCE OF THE OFFICAL RELEASE. Now how cool is that? And just to be even cooler, we will also have some Ten giveaways including some limited edition Albion t-shirts and posters. And one lucky winner buying the CD over Thursday/Friday will win a life size standee of Queen Boudicea herself, signed by all the band, as well as artist Gaetano Di Falco, who will also be in attendance.

So if you are a diehard Ten fan, or just want to be one of the first in the world to have a copy of what will no doubt soon become a Ten classic, then you know where you need to be on Thursday October 23rd.

The Event starts at 7.30pm with In Faith and the playback of the stunning ‘There’s A Storm Coming’ and at approximately 9.15pm Ten will unleash Albion in all its glory until the event end at approximately 11pm.

So remember – it’s a first come, first served basis on E-mail - applications to a maximum of 4 people (please state in your E-mail how many people you wish to attend) will be accepted from 10am on Friday September 26th – and replies will be issued as E-mails are received until we reach our limit of 200 people
We look forward to seeing you in Nottingham, for what is a fantastic start to an always memorable Firefest weekend.

Firefest VIP Tickets

Hi Guys, Just to let you know that ALL VIP ticket purchasers will not actually receive PHYSICAL TICKETS

All VIP's will receive WRISTBANDS which should be worn at ALL times during your time in Rock City.

Wristbands may be collected from the FIREFEST front of house team at the FIREFEST DESK, located just inside the main foyer of Rock City on the LEFT HAND SIDE, immediately inside the glass doors.

VIPs may collect their wristbands from 11am Friday morning October 24th - or any time thereafter as you enter the venue. Please bring PROOF OF ID.

All wristbands are bagged, tagged and ready to go so there will be no delays and you can, of course, enter the venue 20-30 minutes ahead of general admission. Please check the door times as advertised for each day.

We are using wristbands this year in an effort to combat the blatant abuse of our laminate system of previous years, and consequently wristbands will not be distributed in advance this year but will only be available for collection at the venue. We apologise for the lack of a physical tickets, but as we are SOLD OUT there have already been attempts made to print counterfeit laminates, so collection just prior to the show commencing will prevent further attempts to produce counterfeits thus ensuring only those who have purchased a ticket to the show will in actual fact gain entry. Thanks for your understanding
