  1. Worthy View Review

    A lovely guy who is a long standing WV crew member is seriously ill at the moment. Our family have known him for years. There is a crowd funding thing going on to help out. If anyone can spare anything, even a couple of quit, it would be hugely appreciated. Details below. https://www.gofundme.com/kindness-for-kainan
  2. Murder at Bestival

    One report mentioned that there were some particularly 'dodgy' pills available there. They really should have The Loop drug testing all all major festivals. Really does keep people safer.

    @crazyfool1 @crazyfool1 currently consulting my legal team re plagiarising my thread titles. Be very afraid. Taunton is a small town
  4. Old Music Thread

  5. Field Trip Festival

    Production company there having a big panic right now. The electrics haven't been signed off by a suitably qualified person and the electric company doing the job have no such person. Council won't let it open until sorted. Sure it'll be fine in the end.
  6. Boomtown?

    Yup, I'm a newbie Been invited there for years but couldn't turn down the Boardmaster's dollar.
  7. Boomtown?

    I suspect that tickets will sell much much faster for next year's BT. I know hoards of people who usually go to Glastonbury who say it is BT for them next year. Seems to have had rather good reviews .... http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/reviews/boomtown-2017-music-and-mayhem-gives-a-welcome-break-from-reality-a7897401.html
  8. It started with a stick 2.0

    After much discussion we have decided to make another table. What a surprise! Likely to be in the same style but a variation on the usual theme. One design fault with the last one was that it was too wide. It wasn't possible to pass anything that needed to be shared from one side of the table to the other.

    I was in a group of 18 to 55 years old. You'll be fine
  10. Boomtown?

    Really, you should go. My first time this year (always had to work Boardmasters previously) and after a lifetime of going to festivals I can only describe it as jaw dropping. See you there

    Won't say it's going to be shit but there will be loads more old duffers.
  13. Boomtown?

    Not getting booked for Boardmasters this year turned out to be a massive result. Boomtown for me from now on. Just superb. Having seen what I saw this year, I'm absolutely sure that tickets will be like gold dust next year as there is no Glastonbury. EDIT If any of you guys are wondering how to replace (OK, It can't be replaced, but next best thing) Glastonbury next year I really do suggest BT. For anyone who hasn't been, it is a dreamland. If you are a cynic you could call it Disneyland for adults on drugs but saying that , despite what I expected, there seemed to be less drug use than in the SE corner at Glastonbury. I'm absolutely amazed by the amount of creativity that's gone into it, the fact that there's an interesting narrative going on (which I now want to find out more about), and the way it's actually 3 festivals close to each other. Whistler's Green (where I'll be next year) is like a brilliant version of the old Big Green Gatherings. Back in the 20th century, people would go to festivals, take lots of LSD and create imaginary worlds in their minds. But now it's like people have got some wood & scaffolding, and actually built their imaginary worlds at the festival. Hopefully see some of you there. Toilets were all excellent bar a couple of rows, food and drink on a par price and quality wise with Glastonbury. There is even a free daily newspaper. One thing to mention is that there are numerous hills of death linking different parts of the festival. Although my legs are now killing me I actually rather enjoyed them.
  14. Which festivals will sell out quicker next year?

    Cheers, I'll check out that vid. A few friends have been before (they're not short of funds like us) so I do have some insight. Got a couple of contacts over there so a slim chance of crew/working tickets. If it looks like it is likely that we're going I'll let you know. Jump aboard, the more the merrier.
  15. Which festivals will sell out quicker next year?

    We (that's me and my Glastonbury crew) have been talking of doing the same for years now as it is a fallow year. All down to finances. Fingers crossed.
