    next announcement ...

    cheers Grumpy. Yeah, it does sound like a good idea - obvious benefits for both festival and punter. I wish I'd locked in to a few festivals at the prices of 5-10 years ago...

    ah, my mistake - I'd confused the £1000 up front thing with the ticket for life. (I did add a caveat, to be fair). Have a lovely time folks.

    yeah, fair enough. It's not cool to spoil your fun - each to their own. 'Proudly supported by efestivals' on the front page of the Wychwood website presumably wouldn't count as any sort of endorsement for Neil either, so I am going to leave it well alone now. I do feel that perhaps the ticket for life scheme has a detrimental effect on the festival going forward, as it's people through the door - who are going to come anyway - but don't actually add to the coffers year on year. (atleast that's the way I understand it, anyway). I hope you have a good one.

    there's a few reggae references in the blurb.... that'd be nice.

    I'm just enjoying reading your ever more desperate attempts to portray Wychwood as a credible music festival. It's the gift that keeps giving. I Thank you.

    It's great news for Wychwood that they've secured Scouting for Girls this year. I gather they'd been after them for quite a while. T'Pau (is that original members??) and then SFG (as I like to call them) will bring the house down. Anyone who says that their stats aren't relevant for festivals is just plain wrong. Do you think they might be able to get Westlife for the Saturday headliner, Neil?

    I did yes. I was interested to know what it was about you that lead you to believe the people would think it was worth paying £15 to listen to you talk. I appreciate that its for a charity, but I won't be attending thanks.

    Are you the same Stella Hermoine Howell who ran for UKIP in 2010?

    I live near by so might do, although it does depend on what was involved though, really.

    Bearded Theory 2019

    Thanks man It's an odd one. This will be our 6th Bearded, but quite a large proportion of the music isn't really what we're into. I don't really do 'guitar music'. (sorry - massive generalisation, not meant to offend but I'm sure you know what I mean) We were initially pulled by the lineup (2010, I think it was), but now it's not so much about that. They'll never have quite enough ska, reggae, dub, worldy stuff for me - but there are very few better places to spend a few days. The punters, the organisers, the beer - all spot on. We've had a lot of fun getting messy there, and equal amounts of fun doing it the family way. Its one of those rare festivals where both approaches work. I just can't wait to get back there, after a few years off, and if/when young children curtail the fun before the headliners have played I won't be too fussed.

    Presumably, one of these is the UB40 debacle? You were far more reserved in sharing your views when Wychwood booked them the next year (do efests still sponsor Wychwood, I'm not sure?) Criticism is fine, of course, but in being so inconsistent with it, it just comes across targeted - which is what I've objected to in this long running tittle tattle.

    Bearded Theory 2019

    Yeah, this is it. There's bookings that are just $hit bookings, and there's bookings that are decent enough - but just not suited to an individuals tastes etc. These clearly fit into the latter category. It's outstanding that a festival of this size has the likes of Seth Lakeman and Steel Pulse playing in earlier slots - which suits well with us doing it with kids these days, so it's all good.

    There's a difference between stating that the headliners aren't to your preference, and just being consistently and unnecessarily negative about a festival. I'm guessing you're intelligent enough to understand that, but stubborn enough not to acknowledge it.

    feeling a bit flat after that announcement.... No interest in any of the headliners this year. Can't win 'em all. I still love you Bearded.
