Equinox Festival - Anybody been?

Recommended Posts

New site this year, after last year it was on the old Alchemy site.

Basically the same crew that run it, minus a couple of people! 

Not planning on going this year, line up looks good though!

Hello Paul,

I haven't even looked at the line up! An opportunity came along to go to my only festival this year, so I just snatched at it. Thanks for the information.

I`m going, should be a little crowd of us, cant not go really...... Gong with Steve Hillage just cant be missed :):)  :) 

 

Gong with Steve Hillage!! That really can't be missed. My mate played Gong to me a few times decades ago when we first started smoking dope. Haven't heard them since, so it'll be nice to do so again, for old times sake.

I'll probably wear my efests t shirts if the weather is warm during the day, so feel free to say hello if you spot me. :)

I'll definitely look out for the flag on my travels. It's quite a distinctive flag, so hopefully I'll spot it.  :)

Pissed is OK in my books. Anyway, a strange turn of events has happened. Despite our assurances that we'd not spend a single night apart (something which stopped me from going to Glastonbury this year) me and my wife have decided that she'll not go (because she no longer wants to), but that I will go, because one of our friends is going and we can't leave him in the lurch.

The net result of the above is that I now have a spare ticket (in my wife's name) which is completely useless to us. I guess I could try and sell it, but that's not really the way I operate. So, if there's a lady out there who wants a free ticket, then PM me. Also, if there's a bloke out there that wants a free ticket and knows how to change the names on an existing ticket, then please also get in touch. This will, by necessity, have to be done on a first come first served basis. This offer also goes out to trannies, gender neutrals, aliens etc. It's going to be a case of first come first served. Not sure what the set up is, as I've never been before. This means that we may have to meet up just prior to going in to the festival. Will look in to this.

 

Oh, just had a thought - pixies, elves, nyads, fairies etc can also apply for this free ticket. In fact, I hope that you do.

can't help but wonder, and feel free to tell me that it's none of my business, but why would you decide not to spend a single night apart?

absence makes the heart grow fonder , and all that....

nice way of doing things though man - I doff my cap.

Hello there man next door,

Me and my wife don't spend very much time apart in any 24 hour period. We may, at a push, spend some time apart in different rooms in the house, but that's about all. I can only tell you my reasons why this is. I have spent several decades being monumentally fucked off and depressed with life. Then my wife came along, and took all that sadness away. I kind of know it was the same for her, but that's not for me to say. Anyway, we just talk to each other and love each others company so much that we don't really part. It works for us ie if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Hope that you are having a lovely day. 

Yog :)

It's a good little original style fest with the best vibe of any I've been to.

I've been the last two years but want to try the Liverpool Psy Fest which unfortunately clashes.

Thanks man next door :)

Strange things are afoot though. My wife declared that there's just too much to do around our new (old) house, and that she wasn't going to go to the festival, but that I should go with one of our friends, who bought a ticket on the strength that we were going. I really don't want to let our friend down, but also, I don't really want to spend my limited time on this planet not being with my wife. Too be honest, I'm all over the place on this one. I have asked my mate whether he'll know anybody there, and he says that he'll know a few. And the reason why he'll know a few is that this will be about his eight festival this summer ( five of them in a row) and he has made friends along the way, who have also been at other festivals he has attended. So, part of me thinks he'll be OK, and part says that I should go, on friendship principle. Then, about five minutes ago, I read of someone that part of it looks like it might be taking place in an old quarry. For reasons that elude me right now, that sounds like something that I'd like to witness. I'm thinking that there will be a good vibe, and maybe, just maybe, I need that vibe, to counteract the stress of my house move - long story, but, for the first time in my life, I hired a removals company. A company that quoted for the job, did two thirds of it, and then said that they weren't doing the rest unless they were paid more. Wow, did they drop us in the shit. I could go on about the domino affect that had on our lives, but will spare you. The thing is my wife's as happy as gurgling baby in this house, and sorting it is her pressure relief. I think that I may need to be in a quarry, getting off my box, and seeing / listening to the sights and sounds.

Thanks for the response flannel. It's whetted my appetite to go that little bit more.

Hope you go Yog, I'd like to meet you and get you a few beers!

Hello Paul,

I am going! The decision has been made. I'm picking a mate up in Birmingham at around 10am tomorrow morning, and travelling up in me and my wife's campervan to the festival. It'll be a slower journey than if we went by car, so expect it'll be about 2pm by the time we get there. Don't suppose you know whether my mate will be allowed to pitch his tent next to the campervan do you? Be handy if they did allow this. Jesus - I've just realized all the shit that I need to do before then. Must get off here, for a while, and deal with the booze inward situation.

Hopefully see you and your partner over the weekend Paul.  I'll PM you my mobile number. 

Yog :)

Can peeps attending give a review of this festival when they get back? I've been eyeing this fest up for a while now and frequently watch the Guy Berresford footage from when it used to be Alchemy on YouTube. Some great shots there and it looks like a good little festival and right up my alley. I'm thinking next year I'll be at Bearded, then a medium size festival in August and then another smaller one at the end of Sept. (either Equinox or SEITD) 

I'm particularly keen to find out how the new site is and whether stages are closing a bit later - I know that was a problem in the past.
