September 28, 2012 / Posted by Cara

Did you miss out on tickets to the upcoming Guildhall show? Do you have tickets and want to have the ultimate souvenir of the evening? Would you be interested in buying a live DVD of the Schubert Dip / Stigma gig that will take place on December 15th?

We have been waiting for a long time to have the opportunity to create a brilliant live HD DVD and this is our chance. So, if the demand is there from you guys wherever you are in the world, we are going to film a 5 camera HD shoot of both album sets, with multi track audio mix, band interview and incidental footage backstage at the aftershow.

We know that a lot of you have been asking for a high quality live DVD but we can't do it unless the demand is there. If this is something you would absolutely buy then please join the Facebook "events page" and let us now. As you know, it will involve a lot of time and expense so we can't do it without your support.

[ Post about this in the Forums ] EMF to play Schubert Dip and Stigma back-to-back!
September 14, 2012 / Posted by Cara

EMF will be playing the gig of a lifetime on Saturday, December 15, 2012.

Come join the band as they embrace their roots at the legendary Gloucester Guildhall for one very special night. The Guildhall is a huge part of EMF history as it was the backdrop for the band's breakthrough video, "Unbelievable," as well as several spectacular performances.

EMF took the world by storm in 1991 with their debut album, Schubert Dip, which featured mega-hits "Unbelievable," "I Believe" and "Children." The follow up in 1992 was the critically-acclaimed album, Stigma, which featured hits and live favorites "They're Here" and "It's You."

This evening at the Guildhall will feature not only Schubert Dip being played, but also fan-favorite Stigma being played start-to-finish for the first time ever. Many of the songs on Stigma have never been played live, while only a few others remain in the band's current live show.

After the music stops, there will be a meet-and-greet session and DJ set spun by EMF's own James Atkin and DJ Milf.

Tickets cost only £30 but are guaranteed to go very fast as dedicated fans from around the world converge on Gloucester for this early Christmas present. You don't want to miss out on what is certain to be an unforgettable experience.

EMF To Play UK Festivals
January 23, 2012 / Posted by Cara

Gloucestershire chart sensations, EMF, are set to return to the stage after signing up to two county festivals this year. The band have put pen to paper and agreed to play Lakefest in Tewkesbury on Friday 18th May, followed by Westbury-On-Severn Cider Festival on Saturday 25th August.

The band are set to delight festival goers by performing Schubert Dip, their acclaimed multi-million selling debut album, in its entirety. The album features worldwide number one hit “Unbelievable” alongside the worldwide top ten singles “I Believe”, “Children” and “Lies”. The performances will also see them play tracks from the album that have never been played live.

The shows coincide with the 21st anniversary release of the album and its subsequent chart success in both the UK and US. These special performances will be the first time that EMF, who hail from Cinderford in the Forest Of Dean, have ever played the album from start to finish, a fact that adds to the excitement it will bring to organisers of both festivals and fans alike. This is also the first time in 3 years that EMF have performed together.

Organiser Martin Newell of Lakefest 2012 said, “We are thrilled to be able to announce EMF’s involvement in what will be a very memorable festival for a lot of reasons. They are one of Gloucestershire’s biggest bands in history and for them to agree to reform and play this special show for us is an honour – one that no-one will want to miss.”

Lakefest is to be held on 18th and 19th of May at Croft Farm Water Park in Bredons Hardwick, near Tewkesbury. Other exciting acts on the bill include The Levellers, Reef, Dodgy, Toploader, Chesney Hawkes and Miles Hunt & Erica Nockalls of The Wonder Stuff.

Tickets for Lakefest can be purchased from from lakefest.co.uk/tickets.

Westbury Festival 2012 will take place over the August Bank Holiday on 25th & 26th August – full line up and ticket details to be announced on westburyfestival.co.uk.
