eFestivals is fund-raising

eFestivals has been here 20 years supporting festivals and festival goers. Without your support it will not continue as it has been.
Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

You can donate or sign up for 'gold' (ad-free) membership, or you can contact the editor.

  1. They are normally on the left as you enter the field about 4 vendors in. I really can't wait now, thinking about the food there gets me as excited as the bands.
  2. Ghandi's Flip Flop and the Indian are two separate vendors. The indian sells veg and non-veg. Ghandi's just vegetarian. Both great! The Indian is called just that Indian Food. Half a dozen sikh guys I think, very clean and tidy.
  3. I'm looking to get there about noon. Gentle drive down from Manchester, picking up my mate from the airport who is flying in from Belfast, brekkie on the way. Also have a new tent, one of those inflatable ones. Had a trial run on the field last week. Cannot wait.
  4. I was hoping for nothing I was particularly interested in on the Thursday as was going to have a good drink then and take it easy for the rest of the festival and actually remember some of the acts. The past 3 or 4 years too many acts have passed me by through over-indulging. However love Beans so that plan might go out of the window.
  5. Took me a couple of days to find the Maltsmith and even longer to find the Frontier Bar!!
  6. My first time at Boomtown and again volunteering for Oxfam for about the 10th time. I had a similar experience to Amfy. After the first day or so I didn't really get it. My favourite areas of Glastonbury are Avalon and Acoustic and Green fields area. I didn't really think there was much for me. However, once I got into it, I found lots of places to go and see and find the music I loved. Especially loved wandering around the Old Town and the attention to detail is unbelievable. Didn't really get all the Ami stuff and not really my bag. I got hundreds of people asking about her though. I was a supervisor in the downtown area Amfy and realise now that it was you requesting stewards for a good few hours. I was a few stewards down through no shows and illness so I can understand the issues you were facing. There was a lot less people out of it than I had expected and overall it was a great experience though not sure I would go again. Being a volunteer didn't leave a great lot of time and I feel totally knackered now and the cost of a ticket is a lot for the bands I tend to go see compared to the cost of Bearded Theory etc and is a long way from Manchester where I am from. Did my most ever steps one day I was working over 42k and 19.8 miles!! My favourite stages were Hanger 161(loved the ethos), Earache factory, Skank inn Old Mine and Old Town. Favourite acts Skatalites, Dubioza Kolectiv, Havana meets Kingston.
  7. Paul Heaton and Jackie Abbott announced Academy 2 15th December as a benefit for Hope Not Hate via GMB Union. £27.50 inc booking fee. Looking forward to this also going to Albert Hall to see him for the first time.
  8. Have just bought the three man conventional, gave it a trial run putting it up and down yesterday. Very easy. Taking it to Shrewsbury folk festival at the week. Will hopefully have the hot weather to be able to give it the black out and sun reflector a good test.
  9. Can't believe 10 pages and only 1 mention of ELO page 7. However very lucky to see the Hyde Park concert recently so would not choose them. Didn't go this year so would love to see John Grant. Would love Simon and Garfunkel but the reports on here aren't great and Paul Simon wasn't great when he played. So in conclusion I'm not that fussed really, sorry.
  10. Thanks for that great reply, I'll certainly use the lock-ups as I have done in the past.
  11. James, Really like the pictures. It that a professional camera you use? My long distance and night time ones always come out rubbish and it is really frustrating. I have a Canon IXUS 70, but could borrow a decent Nikon SLR, would that make a difference.
