Wychwood 2019 your thoughts?

Recommended Posts

Well that's Wychwood 2019 done and I wonder what those on here who went made of it.

As always I enjoyed it and I'll continue paying with their Ticket for Life scheme.  But musically I thought it had really lost direction.  A collection of bands who 'used to be something' forty years ago doesn't make for a great festival. Maybe I'm getting old but when the standout acts for me were Basil Brush and a couple of up and coming bands on the BBC Introducing stage it doesn't say much for the main festival lineup.

The food stalls were fine with top marks for the Sri Lankan Rice and Curry place.

I love Wychwood and whilst it was lacking musically this year, It was still great, the dance tent worked well.

We did miss a reef, wonder stuff, from the jam etc. mid day programme but it made us go and check out the other tents and who knows if we have seen the next wolf alice or rag and bone man  !?

We did hear from someone on site that losing One if there benefactors, Dave, had an effect and means they really have to make money this year since they have always lost money, hence the righting of band budget and smaller tent venues. Was told the stranglers cost £36k !!! But Toyah loved it last year so much she did it for £800 expenses this year. It’s got to be hard finding the right bands for the right money.

Shame we didn't get to meet Christian.  And I don't think Neil made it this year - but he'll probably put us right.
