Posted 11 April 2011 - 07:52 AMFirst time I've seen this festival announcement.
Actually super impressed with the line up - smashes right across my taste line
Posted 11 April 2011 - 12:01 PMAce! You should come. It's cheaper than a lot of the other festivals and the site is going to look amazing.
Posted 11 April 2011 - 12:19 PMOh, I am seriously looking into it.
While this smashes across my taste lines, it'll be interesting to see if I can persuade a friend or two along.
Posted 11 April 2011 - 12:36 PMThe line up is amazing. Moor Music Festival was always fab but SOOOOOOOOOOOOO looking forward to this year
We'll be there

Posted 15 April 2011 - 11:34 AMWe can announce that we're opening up the campsite a day early on Thursday for....
FRANKIE AND THE HEARTSTRINGS!
The band will be one of the first to play the festival and only weekend ticket holders will get the opportunity to see them!
Posted 21 August 2012 - 11:04 PMit was nowhere near that bad...
it was fucking awesome!
yes, the arena/camp split is always a little annoying, but that is the way of most festivals. yes, people were checked for alcohol when entering the arena, but i walked through with a plastic bottle of wine in my pocket every time.
the campsite catering and activity tents were some of the best i've ever experienced, and the moan about bad language being used in front of the kids is just petty.
admittedly, there were some problems with the toilets, and more portaloos were brought in throughout the weekend.
my main gripe is that for some bizarre reason, we were not allowed to enter the arena until the bands started playing at 12 o'clock!
the bar and food prices were the same as any other festival, and it was certainly not an exercise in money-making. and to write a whole paragraph on a 'bad taste' t-shirt is frankly ridiculous.
i saw no bad behaviour all weekend, no aggression or harsh words, just thousands of people having a bloody good time.
and yes, some of the bands may have been a little obscure to a casual listener, but i found at least ten that were absolutely incredible.
i will definitely be going back next year, and i'm sure the 'issues' raised by that reviewer will have been attended to.

Posted 06 September 2012 - 06:29 PMOwly, it was the worst festival I have ever been to, and I have very much done the rounds.
I'll put my review up elsewhere.
