The Gods 2001     October 07, 2001

As was announced last week the line up for this years Gods 2001 festival has had to be changed. After the recent terrorist attacks in the USA, and the ongoing repurcussions and uncertainties a number of the North Americans artists have understandably decided to withdraw from the event. Harem Scarem, Stan Bush, Adriangale and Skin Tag will not now be appearing. Now & Then Productions was determined that the event should proceed as normal. This decision was made for three reasons -
1. Cancelling the event would be one more small victory for the perpetrators. They are attempting to disrupt civilised society and business. As such, one way to fight back is to carry on regardless.
2. So many people have already paid for flights and accomodation and would be unable to get money refunded. We really feel for these people and after the commitment they have shown in making arrangements in advance for such an event we owe it to them to make this show happen.
3. Prior to the tragic events of September 11th, we had decided to ask people on the guest list for this year's show to contribute to a charity. We now know who that charity should be. Other ways to raise money for the families of the victims of this terrible tragedy will be taking place over the weekend. Since the cancellation of some of the acts, we have been working extremely hard to put together another bill. As we hope everyone will appreciate this has not been easy but we think we have come up with another excellent line up.
