Long time since you've heard from us, we know! Just to let you know what we've been up to, and what is in store for Auckland Zinefest this year.

First up
, call for involvement goes out Saturday 1st of May. Application deadline will be by the 31st of May. Late applications will be kept on file as backups - please don't hold this against us as we are busy people and trying to make the day as smooth as.

The application form will be posted up this weekend, but feel free to email us if you have any enquiries.

Secondly, we will be having a little stall at the Cassette Markets this Saturday! We will be selling zines from our friends, as well as spreading the good word (re: call for involvement) and having application forms on hand.

Feel free to come along and chew our ears if you have any questions etc or feel like chats. There will be lots of cool things and entertainment - we even hear there will be a BBQ out on the deck!

Thirdly, we are organising a night at Cassette. It will be called 'Zinefest vs Mum' - "Mum" being the Friday night club night they have there. There will be bands and entertainment, as well as a VIP section with zine-workshop facilities.

Basically this will be a party-night, where you can come and mingle/party/make stuff with like minded people... if you would like to be on the doorlist (we would like you and all your mates to be on the doorlist, so tell us their names too), send us an email with "Zinefest vs Mum" as the header, and your crew list inside.

The first 50 people through the door after 9pm get a free Kirin beer, and the first 30-or-so people to complete a page for the collaborative zine will receive a free drink ticket also. Whee!

DHDFDS and Ghost Wave confirmed for the event so far.

And lastly... dates and venues confirmed for Auckland Zinefest 2010! August 14th, 2010: Day event (featuring workshops, talks, stalls and more) will be held at Wine Cellar and St Kevins Arcade, K Rd. After party featuring bands, party times and mystery cool shit will be at Wine Cellar and Whammy! Keep them in your diary.


With that in mind, we hope that you will keep us in mind for this year's event. And, as always, we'd love to hear from you if you have something you'd like to share with us:

Much love, Tessa, Tes and Nick at Auckland Zinefest.
