Live

We keep being asked to add a proper listings page to the live section, but it is a massive overhead and there's currently no one in the team to maintain it properly so we've introduced a compromise.

If you go to Poster Gig you'll see what we've done and hopefully it will all make sense. Artists and clubs, if you've got a poster of your dates, we're here to help.

Live reviews, the last ten reviews will be listed in the right hand column all reviews in the new format will be listed below alphabetically by headliner/first name. All previous gig reviews are retained in the Fatea Archive, but it's probably easiest to use our site search function.
