Cardiff Unemployed Daytime Disco | 08.07.2011 21:50 | Free Spaces

On the eve of the return of the Unemployed Daytime Disco to Cardiff - Monday 11 July, 2 - 8 pm, Rockin Chair, Lower Cathedral Rd., Riverside Cardiff - activists reproduce for indymedia readers the text of a handy DIY helpsheet we've produced ;) To paraphrase Che, 'Create One, Two, Many Unemployed Disco's'!

Rumour has it that news of the Unemployed Daytime Disco has reached New York, we are expecting a wave of Unemployed Daytime Disco's starting up in cities across the world that are suffering from high levels of Unemployent. We have been asked to do a daytime disco in Bristol but what we are most interested in is helping Unemployed people to organise their own discos in their own towns and cities - it's better for everyone this way!

So to this end here is a very basic guide... for anyone new to organising a daytime disco :D

Organise your own Unemployed Daytime Disco - 7 Easy Steps

1. Find a venue that has PA system where the owners are easy going and won't charge you for venue hire. If you have your own PA even better - more choice of venues then ;)

2. Pick a date - our date is fuck the Gregorian calender do it at full moon Cardiff time is 2pm - 8pm

3. Get talking about the Unemployed Daytime Disco ! Spread the word tell your friends, ask your friends to DJ, play guitar read a poem etc

4. Ask around for an artist to make a poster / jpeg

5.Do a Facebook Event Page - feel free to copy and paste any quotes / statistics etc from the Cardiff Daytime Disco

6. Add the line up to event page with a link to each act

7. When the line up is finalised work out the time for the acts on the day someone will need to have a copy of this on the day to try and help stick to the times so everyone on the line up gets chance to play
