Book Yer Ane Fest X marks ten years of Make That A Take Records and ten years of Safe-Tay and we couldn’t be more excited to report that the label is able to tie together two hands of time next weekend. BOOK YER ANE FEST is a DIY punk charity benefit festival curated by Make That A Take Records to support Safe-Tay, a Tayside-based water safety charity formed in 2006, and the causes they support. Since inception in 2008, Book Yer Ane Fest has grown from an all-day gig in the back room of a Perth pub into a five-day, three-city showcase of international and domestic DIY punk that features artists and punks from across the world, bringing many visitors to Dundee for the a winter weekend celebration of DIY punk and community.

2016 is especially significant in that it marks ten years since the formation of Safe-Tay and ten years since the birth of Make That A Take Records, as well as being the tenth Book Yer Ane Fest (two were held in 2009). 2016 will also mark the final year of fund raising and activism from Safe-Tay, who have achieved incredible things in water safety education and prevention over the last decade. All funds raised this year will be donated to Insight Counseling, The Royal Life Saving Society and Tayside Mountain Rescue. We will also be taking donations of foodstuffs/toiletries for Dundee Foodbank.
Make That A Take Records are very proud of our relationship with Safe-Tay and wish Lisa and family all the very best for the future. Make That A Take are also very proud of the extended DIY punk rock family who have helped shape Book Yer Ane Fest into one of the most exciting and anticipated events on the calendar, something that has come to represent a world wide punk rock family reunion that is always the highlight of our year. To be celebrating ten years of Make That A Take and Safe-Tay at Book Yer Ane Fest X is humbling and mind-blowing in equal measure.
We are very grateful to be welcoming artists from all over the globe including performers from the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Europe and all corners of the UK. Make That A Take aim to foster a positive and safe environment that is welcoming to all people who want to share in a weekend of fun, engagement and world class DIY punk rock to support causes that are very close to our collective hearts. We invite everyone to come and join us in Dundee for a weekend of punk rock, family and fundraising to support the community that has helped shape our collective over the last decade.
