Think green and keep it clean Leaderâ€™s Responsibilities
Those who are identified on bookings as leaders are responsible for their group. Leaders should not allow campers under their care to go off-site without their permission or without a specific time at which to report back. Leaders should not go off-site without leaving some other adult responsible for their group and should inform the sub-camp leader of this change. In the case of an emergency, we need to be able to contact the leader as soon as possible.
1. Please show care and consideration for everyone on-site and visiting the showgrounds.
8. Do not cook inside tents other than the designated cook tents. 9. No camp fires or disposable barbeques to be used on the grass.
2. No smoking is allowed anywhere on the Kingâ€™s Hall / Balmoral site.
10. No vehicles on-site, except those required by staff.
3. Alcohol must not be brought into or consumed on-site.
11. Valuables left in tents or cars are left entirely at the ownerâ€™s risk.
4. No-one who is intoxicated will be permitted to either enter the site or remain on the site. 5. Wristbands must be worn at all times to obtain entrance to all events. 6. No mixed sleeping (unless married). 7. Tents must be at least 3 metres apart and should not be pitched without permission from the sub-camp leader.
12. Litter must not be left around the site as this causes health and safety problems. 13. No pets to be kept on-site.
Emergency? In case of emergency, please contact your subcamp leader or the campsite office. Medical help is on hand 24 hrs a day. If you need help just ask at the St. Johns Ambulance tent or any member of staff. PLEASE be quiet at night. It you want to stay up late, please respect those who are trying to sleep. Remember that noise carries across the campsite at night. A quiet curfew will be enforced in the camping area from 1:30am onwards.
Event Crew Famous the world over â€“ the Summer Madness Event Crew are here to make your stay enjoyable and safe. They work long hours to make your camp a trouble-free experience, so go on, give them a smile and let them know they are appreciated. Lost Wrist Bands If you lose your wristband the cost of a replacement is ÂŁ5.00. These will only be replaced if verified by your leader (in person) and if ID is presented. No crossing into any area that has been marked out-of-bounds by red and white tape (this will constitute trespassing, punishable by law). Summer Madness wishes to make it clear that it does not favour sectarian propaganda or proselytizing within the Christian fellowship and anyone
involved in these practices will be escorted off-site. This means that any group or individual which uses the SM Festival and its facilities for such purposes does so against the spirit of the event. The organisers reserve the right to cancel any booking (be it that of any individual or group) that they deem necessary and escort all concerned parties off the premises if these ground rules are not observed. Thank You We would like to thank all those people who have worked tirelessly, financed and resourced us during the year and at the camp to make the event such a success. Thank you!

Worship Leaders Rend Collective Experiment Ben Cantelon Life is moving fast for Ben: just married and now living in London, where he has joined the Worship Central team at Holy Trinity, Brompton. Four years ago he was based in Vancouver, Canada where his father is pastor of Christian Life Assembly Church, and whose grandfather was the first Canadian televangelist, Don Cantelon.
Following the release of their debut album in January, the Rend boys and girls have been rather busy touring around Europe and making worship videos on iPhones. Formed in 2004, they’ve been writing and crafting songs that break the mould of Christian worship music.
They’ve been quoted as saying, “we released our debut album… and it is good!” Fortunately, they’re right and while Bangor to Belfast isn’t the longest or most exotic journey they’ve made this year, we’re proud to have them leading us in Mainstage worship at SM10.
Ryan Griffith Born in Carrickfergus, Ryan has been leading worship in the local Elim for 8 years. Through his link with Elim, he became one of the main worship leaders at the large UK even, The Gathering. Ryan’s album is available in local stores, such as Faith Mission and Living Oasis.
Since then there has been more travel, conferences, festivals and numerous appearances on Soul Survivor’s live albums, as well as ‘Daylight Breaks Through’ - an EP released under Survivor’s Emerge label back in 2007. Eventually Ben became Worship Director at Soul Survivor and joins us for the first time at Mainstage Worship 2010.
He lead worship at SM09 and we’re excited to have him back again this year to lead us in worship and to sing his songs that help the Church to worship and exalt Jesus.

Just everyday guys, teens to third-agers, combining shocking yellow t-shirts with a strong belief in God’s desire to do business with you at Madness this year: you’ll see them all around the place, but a favoured location is in pairs in front of Mainstage at the end of an evening, chewing a mint, & waiting – why?
Steve McCartney PT Leader
One of the many ways God ministers at Madness is through the Prayer Team (PT) guys: you’ll see ‘PT 10’ on our badges & yellow t-shirts. We believe that God blesses all who call on Him, and we also realise that sometimes there’s a need for prayer about something that God has brought to your mind, with someone who will pray and seek God’s guidance with you: those ‘someones’ make up PT 10. Spiritual superheroes with everything sorted we are not – we are simply open to being used by God in prayer for His glory and for your benefit. After all, God is not in the business of harm, but of help; not of blame, but of blessing. So, why not take a step of reconciliation between yourself and God?
PT 10 will be at the front after every Mainstage Worship session. We will also be available at the 24/5 prayer venue during the afternoons. We can be recognised by our ID badges & wonderful yellow t-shirts - accept no substitutes. We will not pressure you, preach at you, or do weird stuff: your first name & what you want prayer for is all we ask. We keep confidences (then later forget), unless criminal or abuse issues, suspected or actual, are raised: SM will pass details on to the relevant statutory authorities.

Subcamps SM 2010 Welcome to the heart of the madness! Hope you’re settling in well and making yourself at home... If you’re staying on-site for all or part of the weekend please enjoy living at the hub of the entire festival. The Subcamps will become your second home this weekend. They provide a place for you to eat, sleep (I hope!), socialise with old friends and new and generally chill out. All-in-all they’re an exciting place to be. While you’re getting yourselves sorted out, keep an eye out for a few friendly faces kicking about the Subcamps in the form of your Subcamp leaders (or if the faces aren’t enough, look out for the hi-vis vests). We’re the guys who will stand with you and help you find that ‘perfect’ spot to put your tent. We might equally give you a hand pitching it, because let’s face it, most of
the time we borrow the tents from someone else, forget the poles/pegs and don’t have a notion, right! We’d love to be the people you holler over to as you enter and leave the Subcamp. Let us know what you’re up to, stop by for a cuppa and give us some of your chat! Equally give us a shout if you’ve got any questions about what’s happening in the programme. We may not always know but we’ll certainly find out . Don’t let our new fuzzy, friendly exterior fool you though, Ha! You will still find the old leaders you know and love who STILL need you to get to bed at a reasonable time! I’m sorry, but it’s only fair to the good people who live in and around the King’s Hall, especially the ones who are still getting up each day for work.
You’ll find us at the entrance to each Subcamp and as well as being here for a bit of craic, on a more serious note we’re here to look out for your safety and security while you’re on-site. So if anyone’s hurt, you’re lost, there’s anything you need or are worried about please come straight over and we’ll see what we can do to help. We’re looking forward to meeting you! Keep an eye out as there should be some lovely, exciting things going on in and around the subcamps this year...Watch this space. Love from your friendly, neighbourhood Subcamp Leaders.
Wake up before your dead! Four nights, four visions, four words, for a generation that needs to hear afresh the prophetic voice of Jesus, recapture an undivided love for Jesus, and live a radical life for Jesus. Revelations is a place to come of age, to stand up and then be knocked over by the intensity with which Jesus wants you to follow after Him. It’s time for a new generation to get connected with the faith they say they proclaim, shake off the dust of religious apathy, wipe away the stain of cultural accommodation, and live the only life that really matters…

Brian Houston Born on the east side of Belfast and growing up in the seventies, Brian Houston’s musical influences range from old time gospel tunes to late-night paternal indoctrination through bootlegged Hank Williams reel-to-reels. Bob Harris has been quick to pick up on Brian’s illusive catalogue of pathos and melodic dexterity, referring to him after a recent gig as “the very, very excellent Brian Houston”. After countless tours in the UK, Europe and the USA, Brian is a highly sought after and seasoned veteran of the touring circuit. With a wellestablished fanbase both at home and abroad, we’re honoured to have Brian play at ReHab this year. Nathan Jess Nathan’s captivating performances and his well considered and gripping songwriting are causing many to sit up and listen. From an early age, finding the old forgotten guitar underneath his parent’s bed unknowingly gave birth to an intense desire to connect with this beautiful sounding piece of wood. A number of years on and Nathan continues to pursue his longing to be a relevant songwriter and worship leader of this generation. The first fruits of that come in the form of his debut album ‘O Rescued Ones’.
Gareth Dunlop Gareth was born and raised in East Belfast, on a healthy diet of Bob Dylan and Led Zeppelin. He started playing music on a one-stringed guitar, before finally convincing his dad to buy him another with the full compliment of strings for his 14th birthday. His eclectic vibe is a result of being in and out of many bands, playing many varied styles of music, and having extensive experience from years of gigging around NI and further abroad. Gareth joins the ReHab lineup for 2010, with his full band on Sunday evening.
Maguire and I John Maguire was an old man who lived just down the road from where I grew up. Everyone knew him as Maguire. He was the kind of old man who carved stuff out of wood and ate wild berries that he would pluck from the hedgerows. But who are these young minstrels trying to fool? Maguire & I aren’t old and they don’t like wild berries. They do however play delectable tunes, gracing the stage with an alternative country air, hand in hand with a timeless charm that even old man Maguire would be proud of.
Joe Fisher Born as one of ten children in a northern England family, Joe quickly developed a knack for being quick, witty and slightly loud! Over the course of his youthful days, his talents soon moved out beyond the family homestead, and after a string of appearances on TV Ads, comedy performances at the Royal Albert Hall and hosting massive concerts for BBC Children in Need, 2004 gave Joe the opportunity to host the Olympic Parade in Trafalgar Square, which saw him working for a full hour unscripted with a crowd of over 30,000 people . Since then Joe has gone on to tour extensively as a stand up comedian, present on TV for JML and host more huge events for Sport relief, Tour De France and the BBC.

Who Shares Wins
One of the best things we ever did at StreetReach all those years ago was to offer a free jumble sale. People came in looking to buy clothes and found that we were either giving them away or asking for very little.
So here is the challenge to you – will you dare to share some of your clothes this year? When we say share we actually mean give away. Dig through your bag right now and bring something clean to the collection point at Mainstage worship. This can be part of your worship. There will be ‘StreetReach’ (or similar) in Belfast, Londonderry, Portadown and Ballymena, able to bless other people because of your simple act of generosity. Come on, share it!
Why not share your story? For more info, chat to the Exodus Team at SMart 1.

Every magazine tells us that when we get a boyfriend or that perfect look then we will have found ‘real happiness’, but this isn’t true. Guys are amazing and fashion is fun, but girls, there is SO much more to life. The space that God has created in you for love is there for Him to fill up. Expecting a guy or haircut to do that will create a neediness in you for boy approval that will hold you back. Being God’s daughter means that we can be free to be the beauties we are – unhindered and devoted to Him.
Reflecting on conflict and poverty. Resources will be available that can be used with young people to discuss these issues locally and globally.

[DWEEB] The last time we heard from [dweeb] they were taking care not to smudge the ink on their freshly signed contracts with Fierce! Distribution. And then there was their album – It Came Form Outer Space. And all those great summer gigs. And that thing with the BBC. These days, [dweeb] are even more pumped about the future, with a whole set of plans getting cooked up for this summer. They’ll be taking their neon hyperglo and industrial sonic optimism out to all the major festivals, as well as plenty of the quirky, out of the way ones. That’s how [dweeb] roll – with plenty of energy and their own unique sense of direction. And that’s why all the cool kids love them. [dweeb] are singer/guitarist Tim Alford, bassist Matt Donald, drummer Dave Ashworth and the guitarist known only as The Bman. Through their years of touring they have taken an ark and filled it with a hefty load of fans.
allude to. However, shy of leaving the new reader at a loss, these guys can be coined with just one word. ROCK! More Than Conquerors More Than Conquerors formed in early 2009 comprised of Kris Platt, Danny Ball, Jamie Neish and Danny Morton. Emerging out of the trails of past bands, More Than Conquerors gathered to create music with a united purpose and a shared vision. The dirty yet rhythmic guitars lead the innocent on-looker into a frenzy of intricate
ups and downs, while the mix of impactive beats and hard-hitting basslines make sure the audiences’ feet stay nailed to the ground. Amidst all the chaos, the melodic vocals hold on to the listener for dear life whilst all along pulling aggressively on their heart-strings, and maybe breaking a few in the process. The full outfit when worn creates a punchy sound to be reckoned with. With enthusiasm, energy and togetherness, More Than Conquerors take to each stage like it’s their last.. ‘The mighty More Than Conquerors, a young band with bags of talent. More Than Conquerors are great. Remarkably tight for such a young act and performing every single song as if it’s the last chance they’ll have to do so.’ -Rigsy (BBC)
61 Four Kornerz Every so often an iconic figure emerges – one that needs no deliberate branding or over-stated introductions. This notion is totally expressed in the unforgettable Four Kornerz experience. Since bursting onto the music scene
in 2004 (when the band got signed by UB1 Music management), Four Kornerz has established itself as one of the UK’s leading and brightest prospects for live music and entertainment. The core-band is made up of four sibling brothers: Deji , TJ, Vidal and Daniel who combined stunning vocals with a fresh approach to music production. The band’s ability to embrace a variety of musical sounds from Funk, R&B, Soul and Jazz to more traditional Nigerian rhythms from their homeland – has all contributed to what many see as a unique and refreshing approach to music delivery. This is their 4th year at Summer Madness and although their name is familiar on the bill, stage presence, energy and entertainment are not to be taken for granted that’s why 4 Kornerz have been the highlight performance each time they’ve played at Summer Madness.
Rend Collective Experiment What can you say about Rend Collective Experiment? Well, quite a lot, so it happens. There’s a lot of chat about this new worship group from Northern Ireland, and whenever you tune in to the buzz there are some pretty familiar words that keep on appearing: fresh, inspirational, mindblowingly-good. Rend Collective Experiment defies expectations even from the start of the bio. Not so much a band, more a bunch of friends collectively wondering how to make sense of the conundrum of life, God and community in and around their native Bangor, Northern Ireland. And what a sound. Take the honesty of Elbow or The Flaming Lips, the surges of
Sigur Ros, and the creative power of Sufjan Stevens and you have some idea of the landscape. But it’s not the whole picture. What Rend Collective Experiment’s fifteen plus members add to the sound are lyrics that are both scriptural and contemporary, fresh and ancient. Theirs is a world viewed in widescreen, a faith with legs and a sound that refuses to sit still.
Blue Tree After taking America by storm, and becoming the biggest selling debut act in the US last year, Belfast band Bluetree are returning to Summer Madness. Bluetree’s debut album, ‘God Of This City’, topped the US Christian charts for four weeks last year – a remarkable achievement for a band that had never even set foot in America! That led to a six month tour of the States and Europe, and the first funds released in the Far East to projects supported by the band’s own charity, ‘Stand Out International’. They have just released a live project from their home church in Belfast featuring new material from the new studio album that is due later this year. The band has been voted “Break out Artist of the Year” and have received the “Song of the Year” prize in the prestigious 2009 Worship Leader Magazine Readers Choice awards in the USA. Also nominated as ‘Best New Artist’ in the GMA Dove Awards 2010, they are touring in the US, Canada and Europe throughout 2010.

Artist Profiles gripping songwriting are causing many to sit up and listen. Described as sounding like a young Iain Archer, his debut album ‘O Rescued Ones’ oozes much influence from such songwriters including many other local and far reaching artists.
singing and speaking and sharing his songs, thoughts and faith. He has released 15 recordings featuring his songs and for the three years (2005-8) was the guitarist for Aussie rockers, The Newsboys.

Craig McConnell After playing in a number of bands over the years, Craig now finds himself enjoying the solitude
of an empty stage with nothing more than an acoustic guitar and a story. Capturing memories of growing up in songs such as Old Tree, or telling stories of life, love and faith as in And Then He Cried, Craig released his Debut EP, ‘For A Heart Gone Cold’ in July 2009. Paul Shevlin At just 17, Northern Irish singer songwriter Paul Shevlin is refreshingly modest about his achievements to date. A
number one single on ‘nichart.com’ at the turn of the year with ‘You Won’t Last The Night’, followed by an invite into the BBC to perform a live radio session, yes, it was a good start to 2010. Paul’s infectious piano pop is unashamedly rich in melody, hook heavy, effervescent and quirky. Born into the ‘Reality TV’ generation and swimming hard against its flow, his debut EP will be released in the Autumn of 2010, title to be confirmed. ‘Goodmorning’ is available as a free download at www.myspace.com/paulshevlin. Tom McConnell Tom is a singer/songwriter from Co. Down who is currently studying music at the University of Edinburgh. He uses his guitar, voice, percussion and loop station to create a sound that draws elements from motown, soul and folk. After playing in the final of the Summer Madness Unsigned competition last year, he recorded some original tracks in Fusebox Studios, and plans to release a double sided single in July 2010.

Adam Baker Issues like poverty and injustice influence Adam’s music. Adam’s music is also influenced by his own experience of life, things that he has gone through, or been challenged by. Adam’s music is not worship music as such, it feels like it is more raw than contemporary worship music, and it doesn’t follow the typical worship genre structure lyrically or musically. However some songs of his have been wrote with congregational use in mind. Adam Baker’s album “Your Eyes” is available on CD from www.adambakermusic.co.uk, and on iTunes to download.
