  1. Which ticket company was it with? I've had mine back from See Tickets before after just one email "complaining" (I was v. polite). I even sympathise with the ticket company a bit as I'm sure they have costs involved processing and refunding the order, so sometimes think a % of the booking fee being kept is fair, but 100%....?
  2. I'll go with Metronomy from the original 2020 lineup coming back. King Gizzard would be the perfect booking for this - sure they'll try.
  3. Super early bird's are on sale for this now @ £29.50. Bargain!
  4. Probably a few of the bands from the original 2020 lineup before COVID hit. Metronomy, The Comet Is Coming, Beak>, Girl Band, etc.
  5. I thought it was really well run, especially in challenging circumstances. Toilets, bar, food, even the sound was great (seems to be a few complaints on noise, but I didn't notice much from where I was). Imagine, like most events at the moment, drop-off/no shows are around 30% or so, so might feel a lot of busier next year. Felt it was about just right yesterday. A Certain Ratio, Snapped Ankles and SLIFT the highlights for me! Squid and Mandrake Handshake were a bit disappointing. Goat Girl too. Should've swapped their stage with Snapped Ankles. KOKOROKO were decent too. Enjoyed them on record more, but they and the crowd seemed to be having fun.
  6. Sound like Stereolab, don't they? That's a good thing, I reckon.
  7. Altin Gun and Tinarwien both out, which is a shame. But that's how it is at the moment. Some bands will drop out on the day too if they test positive. But Yard Act, Porridge Radio and a few others added, which is good!
  8. https://halloweentownfestival.com/ Thought this looked interesting, because 1) it's in Bedford and 2) that's an eclectic lineup! Craig David, Nathan Dawe and Majestic one day. Andy C, DJ EZ, David Rodigan and Shy FX the next. Levellers, Peter Hook and Dreadzone the final day!
  9. Exactly. You can sort of see how they got to £50, but given the lineup and equivalent out there AND it's at Northants cricket ground, it still seems high to me.
  10. Hmm. Sleaford Mods and Billy Nomates? I'm tempted.
  11. One of the ticket sites. Dice, I think. Edit: Here it is on AXS. £50 + fees. 10% everywhere, I guess. https://www.axs.com/happylandfaqs?q=Happyland
  12. Standard for most, I'm afraid. Card fees/processing fees and all those costs get absorbed by the ticket agent, then again refunding orders. Plus whatever other costs there are. I doubt most festivals will pay that back to the ticket agent and the ticket agent isn't in a position to insist their client does, so the customer gets saddled with it.
  13. Are we expecting more bands to be announced for this? Ideally some acts from Manchester Psych Fest which is the day before Wide Awake?
