We have just heard that the Whirlwind festival are offering a free 20-track album sampler to all ticket holders for the Whirlwind Festival (10-12 October at Kings Place). The album sampler consists of one track from the latest album of each of the headliners.
To retrieve it, simply email your booking confirmation to info[at]whirlwindrecordings.com (replacing [at] with @) and they will send a download link. For those that are paying by phone, send over your payment confirmation from Kings Place to the same address.
The festival is also offering discounts for all students and musicians (amateur and professional alike) allowing them to purchase tickets for any event at £6.50. Please bring your student ID and/or evidence of you playing your instrument (or an MU card). Book these by phone (quoting “£6.50 Whirlwind offer”) on 020 7520 1490, or online entering the promo code "whirlwind" (all lower case). It should look something like this
Finally, there is another offer for musicians/students: festival passes are going for £15 (they are normally £59.50). These are not available online do not include the Mike Gibbs and Nia Lynn's Bannau Trio with Norma Winstone concert, the only ticket of the festival which must be bought separately under this offer.
