Get ready for launch!

Geek Pop '10Geek Pop ’10 is almost upon us and we expect you’re just as excited as we are. This year, we’re all singing, all dancing, cross-media, multi-reality, bla bla bla… but what that basically means is there are plenty of ways you can experience the 2010 festival.

So here are some of the ways you’ll be able to listen/attend/take part. Get ready…

VIRTUAL FESTIVAL

This is how it all began. And we’ll be back with a newly transformed and beautified virtual festival site at www.geekpop.co.uk on 12 March. Just rock up with your headphones to listen to all the performances, download them for free and get up to stupid stuff – like sending your misplaced virtual underwear to the Lost & Found tent.

HELP SPREAD THE WORD

Geek Pop on TwitterGet a free digital poster for 2010 here. Brightens up any dreary blog or website… And if you’d like a slightly bigger PDF version for your office/lab/houseboat, all we ask is that you donate £1 (ONE POUND!) to the 2011 festival fund.

Or how about some nanoflyers? Yeah, go on. You’ll have to cut them out yourself, but hey, that makes it almost an art project…
