    Lakefest 2018

    Hi Cadski, We've done the same thing in regards to Kendal Calling. We've been for the last five years and giving it a miss this year to try new (to us) smaller festivals. Also the fact we've got Blue Dot tickets with KC the weekend after and I don't think I could do two on the bounce !! I'll make sure I bring my 30m power cable!! (I typed that in the voice of Alan Partridge) Do you think Sporty Spice will do Spice Girl Songs? (Asking for a friend )

    Its our first time this year and we're really looking forward to it. We have a campervan and still shocked we've got an electrical hook up at a festival! The line up looks good to me with the Miss Moneypenny's night being the most intriguing!

    Festival Number 6 - Portmeirion, Wales

    Because of Festival 6 I had a listen to Franz Ferdinand's latest album and really liked it. They've gone the way of a few other bands and 'dancified' (yes that is a word!) themselves. Also, we know someone who saw them at The Albert Hall in Manchester and reported they were very good. And that's my favourite thing about festivals - listening to music that you normally wouldn't do.

    Cool... With Dot to Dot, Blue Dot and The Slow Readers announcements already this week it's been pretty eventful!

    Another solid set of acts this year in my opinion. Manchester Camatara playing Northern Soul sounds like a lot of fun. To be honest this festival is more than the headliners!

    I've a sneaking feeling it's going to be Future Islands... Only because we've got tickets for Blue Dot and every year without fail we get to see one band twice at festivals! Has anyone mentioned Elbow yet !!

    Has anyone had the email with 2018 ticket info? The email they sent said tickets go on sale "this Thursday" which by my calculation is today!!

    Definitely. We had an absolute ball. Great acts, met some lovely people and drank like it was going out of fashion... Roll on next year!!

    The apps now available which has all the stage times and lets you highlight what you want to see and will send a reminder for each act. Looks pretty good as long as it doesn't need an internet connection!!

    To be honest, even in last year's downpours we still had a great time. As you said earlier make sure you wrap up and have your wellies !!

    There's some slack between the timings. Also the two stages aren't too far from each other so you should be able to negotiate both !

    You'll have to wait until you get the program. That said it is a really good book with loads of info about the artists 'n' stuff. Compared to other festivals we go to they do seem to try and make an effort on the little things. For example the blue glossy envelope that the tickets came in was much nicer than the usual plain white piece of card ! I've had a look at the day splits and what I can make out is that they've changed the stage layouts and I think the Tim Peaks Diner will now be in the Castell Park area instead of Clough's stage and acts that would normally be on at Clough's (mainly up and coming welsh bands) are now all playing at the woodland stage.

    We spoke to Festival No 6 today and as we have Friday entry tickets we can get in on Thursday but it'll cost us £20 each. Does anyone know if there's any entertainment on Thursday night?
