  2. Edinburgh Festival

    I grew up in Edinburgh. I was continually told that I should be glad to live in the city that hosts the world's largest art festival. It may well be the world's largest arts festival but it has always been elitist. There was never really anything there for me, especially in music terms. There has been the odd exception. Orbital playing the Ross Bandstand being one. This was when they drowned out the lone bagpiper at the Military Tattoo with Satan. This is the first year that I can remember there being more than one decent act playing at the Festival. St Vincent is one of the headliners this year, Mogwai are playing and Scottish indie legends the Pastels and the Vaselines are doing shows. Ok, considered among a month long festival that has 1000s of acts this does not even constitute a drop in the ocean it is still after all these years a start. As well as the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe we have the smaller but continuing to grow nicely Hidden Doors festival. They have managed to line up Nadine Shah, Dream Wife, Honeyblood, Slyvan Esso and the Young Fathers among others. Edinburgh has a real shortage of music venues, most have been closed down either to become student accommodation or because new build houses complained about the noise. If you buy a house next to a music venue what do you expect? The live music scene is dying up here. It is looking increasingly likely the only time that we will attract decent acts is as part of one of our cities festivals. A sad state of affairs.

  8. How to keep my beers cold?

    Me and my friend have booked for the two day standard, as there is only two of us we’re worried about carrying everything as we know you can only do 1 trip! I’m gonna get a big rucksack for all toiletries clothes etc so we’ll have a rucksack each but on top of that we’ve got a tent a crate of beers each a bottle of vodka each are we allowed to put bottled spirit in our bag or do we have to carry it through? Also would it be wise taking an icebox? I’m only taking about 12 cans for myself because I won’t drink all 24... maybe I’ll get 24 between me and my friend, but will an icebox be too much to carry? Also taking a disposable bbq too. How else can we keep our beers cold? I’m reyt for it tasting like warm piss

  12. Guide

    Hey guys, I've been making the starting touches on a guide for newcomers to Download, starting off with a checklist that can be printed off and laminated with more or less everything anyone from normal camping to R.I.P might want to bring, for now I'd say it's complete but I might come back and add some touches here and there. Thanks
  13. I've booked to come to Creamfields this year and just wanted something specified. I have booked the 2 day camping, which I know starts on Saturday, but I also know the festival goes on until Monday. Is my ticket one night camp and two days at the festival or camp Saturday sunday and come home Monday? As it seems a little odd it only one night, as you won't be able to make the most of your second day if you're driving back! I'm new to these things. HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP

  18. HELP WITH FESTIVAL APPEAL

    Hi guys, i really need help with another appeal to re-run an old festival. it was shut down by the council due to 'health & safety issues caused by a lack of organisation' (which was untrue). anyway it is 8 years on since our last appeal, and recently there has been much discussion about appealing again. we need to be able to present a strong case as to why the festival should be allowed to run next year, but also to demonstrate how all organisation has been greatly improved. If anyone has any advice on how to get around the council and how to help with our appeal and licensing it will be greatly appreciated! also if anyone has any reasons in support of our proposition, please don't hesitate to give them!

  20. Hi, I would like to open a thread for Pohoda festival 2018. It's the most popular open-air multicultural event in Slovakia. Which will be held for the 22nd time from Thursday 5 July to Saturday 7 July 2018. Beside alternative, indie, electronic, world music, punk and classical music you can find also a lot of literature, dance, visual art, film and theatre events. Beside concerts there are man attractions and whole airport area is beautifully decorated with contemporary art, flags, pianos, sunflowers etc. Growing number of foreigners attend this festival, all the announcements and information are provided in English and most of the festival attendants speak English. Festival is really cheap if you compare it to Western festivals or even festivals in Poland or Austria. You only have to pay the ticket price, camping, showers and other facilities are free. Beer costs around 1.3€ and a meal 3€-5€. Specific thing is that festival area runs all the time from Thursday afternoon until Sunday morning and is connected with camping area so there is enough time to discover all the attractions without much walking. Festival is family friendly and there are many people with their children on site. Ticket price is 89€ with the camping included. This price lasts until about beginning of month May, after that it changes to 99€. Tickets and accommodation can be bought at https://www.pohodafestival.sk/en/tickets Capacity of the festival is 30 000 people and it was sold out before the festival started in recent years. There will also be an option to buy pre-set tent, cottage or hotel room later. The closest airports to Pohoda are in Bratislava or Vienna then you’ll take train or bus to Trencin or Brno airport in Czech republic and then you’ll take bus to Trencin. If you have any questions don't hesitate to post in this thread. I’m just a fan of this festival and I would like if more people invite Pohoda and could feel the great atmosphere it has.
