Posted 31 August 2011 - 01:54 PMSad but not unexpected. Presumably, then, they put themselves as headliners on the last night because they couldn't afford another headline act...
To be honest, my friends and I didn't much enjoy the festival this year. We were robbed on several occasions from our tents (the worst being £100 nicked from my mate's wallet as he slept), and generally we were surrounded by arrogant 16-18 year olds who I'd more expect to see at Reading. I guess the cheap ticket deals led to a scummy crowd.
The line-up was pretty toilet, too. Disappointing lack of variety and honestly, Dreaming Spires are the most boring band ever to close a festival main stage.
I won't be going back but I do hope they keep the festival going. I didn't really see the need for expanding, they're obviously clever enough to see the market is overcrowded so I'm not sure how on earth they thought it'd be a good idea, particularly with such a weak line-up.
Posted 26 January 2012 - 02:36 AMWill be interesting to see what happens considering the drastic changes last years event saw.
Posted 14 February 2012 - 02:02 PMInteresting interview with the guy that's taken over the running of the festival, not sure a back to basics approach will be right for the festival. It was on a downward slide way before last year as it wasn't moving with the times, last year was a GREAT improvement and now they are getting rid of it all?
Posted 07 March 2012 - 06:06 PMDecent line-up, but repeated bookings?
My friends band are playing so will be making an appearence.
