is going to be trying his hand at festival planning and promotion sometime in 2008…

and girlfriend Rachel Fuller plan to expand their In The Attic webcasts and club shows into a full scale live and Internet festival next year. Fuller announced the couple’s plans on her official website and explained that, ‘Next summer, me and Pete will hopefully be organizing a -style festival called ‘Atticfest.’ It will be held over the course of a weekend and will either be held at a venue in the U.K. or U.S.'”

Atticfest? I would have much preferred some sort of variation on “palooza” but hey, what can you do. I guess you can start with touting your band as “real” classic rock while others are simply punk. That’s always a good idea.
