Me and a few mates were thinking of trying to host a gig at our local skate park. One of them has a generator for the power and gear/bands/transport are not a problem. It would be in the summer, after GCSE exams. Just wanted some peoples opinions and advice.

(Its the stake park in Ipswich, Suffolk, UK if you're interested)

Go for it, get a few local bands in, make a good night out of it, find out how much the place want though and how much deposit they want etc.

Yeah there's a park (including skatepark, basketball courts, etc) and the basketball courts seem like a nice place to play, it has a bench-like thing around the courts.

So, I'd say go for it. :)

My mate and his band are doing this in June I think.
Renting some farmers spare field and the barn, gonna make a weekend festival out of it.

Good thing yours truly was invited to play :cool:

that may be kind of illegal (to op)... you'd need councils permission or something probably.

There was actually a gig at my local park back in October and it was amazing. I say go for it.
