Delegates and press gathered at the Beatles-themed Hard Day’s Night Hotel for the Conference Welcome.
Opening day events included the John Peel World Cup won by Rooftop Promotions and then a night to celebrate the legendary broadcaster was held at The Picket featuring The Farm, Ian McNabb and
The Carling Academy played host to lively sets from established acts like Does It Offend You, Yeah? and Hadouken!
