MUSIC PIRACY FEATURE

It’s very rare to find someone in this day and age who hasn’t succumbed to one little illegal download in their life. Even if it was just a song by a band you were curious about, most people do it and know full well they’re breaking the law.

Most will tell you that times are hard, which yes, they are hard but does this really give us the right to illegally download albums by bands who are working like crazy just to make it somewhere in the world? read more 

3OH!3 INTERVIEW

SLAM DUNK FESTIVAL 2011

So, Slam Dunk Festival returns for another year! Despite the problems faced last year at Hertfordshire University, the festival returns to Hatfield as well as Leeds University. This year there is a bit of a switcharoo, traditionally Leeds was always on the Sunday, but this year sees Leeds on Saturday 28th May (which the CtrlAltRock girls are a bit sad face about!) and Hatfield is on Sunday 29th May. The change in date is apparently to allow for Herts Uni to prepare for Slam Dunk after their Summer Ball on the Friday, which they say will help will ease the problems of last year, allowing them to move the merch village outside. Let’s hope for less rain then!

Whilst not the headliners, the thing CtrlAltRock are most excited for is the reunion of Drive Thru pop-punk legends, The Starting Line. They will be joined by co-headliners Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish and also on the line-up are Mayday Parade, Framing Hanley, MC Lars, We Are The Ocean, Deaf Havana and 3oh!3. More acts will be announced, so we will be sure to keep you posted!
