    I wonder if the chap running it woo'ed them with his talk and the plans he had at face value. They have given him a free run unsupervised. I've honestly got no idea how anyone independent signed off on that site before the gates opened declaring it safe.

    I was expecting the council to go for them but I sense they won't come out of a proper investigation well either

    The bridge thing is weird there was no space for a bridge and not seen any plans with a bridge. If there was planned access not provided why was it allowed to open at all

    liverpool council staff (festival on their grounds) gave away todays band riders of food/drink to a local homeless charity, which it supports and donates to, he rang the police to report this theft

    He also has had a run in with the IOW council/authority over money, I looked on his personal facebook ( now deleted) and he clearly has a chip on his shoulder over it, calling the IOW full of peados. My reading of it, purely based on reading up today is he is clearly connected in the industry and is probably ok at booking bands/helping his bands out but putting on a event is way beyond his skill set.

  11. Festival cancelled due to mud

    i'm gobsmacked, I was in shock yesterday just how badly organised it was, thats one thing. If they/he would have thrown their hands up and apologised and said we messed up, refunds coming them then fair enough but their response... the chap who put this on, isnt from liverpool or any knowledge of the space and the city comes back badly, tbf the council should have done more, why did they allow a festival to go ahead without the planned access bridge is beyond me

    complete silence from them since this morning

    the facebook is just as bad, they posted someones details saying its his fault which is ridiculous behavior. even if it was his job to build the bridge for access, doesnt explain why doors were late, massive queues, bands 3 hours late etc etc
