Chris is organising another Back In Time Live for the 20th June! This time it's via a Kickstarter that is starting at 8pm on the 6th of February. Get in early and be in with a chance to upgrade to the after party event (for an extra £10).
I'd also recommend booking accommodation now or very soon if going as Brighton is rather expensive for the most part. Most bookings via hotel.com etc. are fully refundable a few days before the stay date, so you lose nothing if the Kickstarter isn't successful. There's a document on the Kickstarter site page with more information about options.
Back In Time Lives are great for the music and as a meetup for the C64 community. I'm going so let's try to get plenty of us there!
# Back in Time Brighton: C64/Amiga live concert (with ninjas) seeks Kickstarter funding for June 2015 event
Since 2001’s inaugural Back in Time, the event has been synonymous with keeping alive classic videogame music. Now, Back in Time 2015 seeks Kickstarter support, to fund a live five-hour concert on June 20, 2015, at St. George’s Church, Brighton.
SID80s, PRESS PLAY ON TAPE, FASTLOADERS and others will play their takes on iconic C64 and Amiga tunes such as Monty on the Run, Monkey Island and Cannon Fodder, to a crowd of 550.
The afternoon prior to the concert will find C64-themed pub experiences turn Brighton into an extension of the concert venue. Additionally, there will be an aftershow event in the Thomas Kemp pub. Ninjas are planned.
The event is seeking funding of £15,000 and the campaign starts on February 6, 2015 at 20:00 GMT. Upon funding, this will be the biggest-ever Kickstarter for a retro-related concert.
