In addition to this fine selection of individuals we have some additional sessions planned on the main stages:

- The Mass Debate – Once again we line up the great and good in the free software and Open Source community to battle it out in the legendary mass debate.
- The Hour Of Power – A big hit last year, we again have The Hour Of Power penned in this year in which a range of cool demos will wow and entertain you. If you have something cool to demo (and this blog goes out on Planet GNOME, Planet Ubuntu and Planet GStreamer, so I am looking at you folks here) do mail us and we can add you to this legendary hour. There are limited slots, so get in quick!
And lets not forget LUGRadio Live And Unleashed – once again the LUGRadio team climb on the stage and record a show in front of a live, heckling, raucous audience. Always good fun.
In addition to this we have loads of extra stuff going on, much of which we will keep for a surprise at the event. One thing we are looking for though are exhibitors. If you want to exhibit your project or company, and particularly if you have cool and interesting stuff to show, mail us.
Exciting news folks, more news as it breaks!
