Something Else in the Dean 2017

Recommended Posts

Just booked my tickets for Something Else in the Dean 2017, a festival I discovered last year, thanks to help from a few EFesters.  Can't recommend it highly enough.  A cheap (£55 for the weekend including camping) and cheerful festival.  A bit hippy dippy and a lovely way to round off the season. I would guess the capacity is about 500 so it's almost like a big family party and also an end of season get together for a lot of festival bands.

Anyone else going?

It's possible that me and my wife will be going grumpy, but, like last year, it's a little precarious. I had been told that the tickets (it is 500 people) had sold out already. Obviously not.

Their website is a bit clanky to say the least and it takes a bit of navigating through pages relating to last year to get to the buy tickets for this year bit but there's nothing to suggest that it's sold out.  I hope you can make it Yog.

I hope so too grumpy, especially after having tickets to go last year and not being able to use them. Hopefully we'll still have our campervan too. We were trying to sell it but then a knight in shining armour has just entered our lives and offered to loan us the money that we would have sold it for, and we don't need to pay him back until the sale of our house goes through.

Hope to see you there - and at a few other fests during the summer with your campervan Yog.

Yes, it would be great to meet up. We will be doing The Landed Festival in Llandrindod Wells on 18th, 19th & 20th August. Normally we'd go to Shambala but are going to give that one a swerve this year. It's only £50 for an early bird ticket to Landed. We actually only paid £25 a ticket last year because we were trading, and the people were very nice to us.

We're going to be at Green Man, which I've never done before in August, the same time as Landed,  So my summer is now sorted with Wychwood, Glastonbury (subject to getting luck in the resales), Abertillery Blues (just day tickets - there's no camping), Steelhouse at Ebbw Vale and finishing off with Something Else in the Dean.
