New Wolverhampton festival, Creation day festival

Midlands festivals have struggled in the last few years, this type of festival anyway. The one in Birmingham couple of years ago with Editors headlining bombed, so will be interesting how it goes with tickets sales in the current climate.

Will certainly look at the Sunday, if I'm not at the neighbourhood weekender next year.

Looks like there's only going to be one stage; hopefully that keeps the costs down

EDIT: Just seen on the official website that it's £55 per day. A non-starter really.

Jesus?! £55. The headlining band Saturday were opening Glastonbury this year by the looks of it. You look at the cost of a Victorious day for eg and compare.

Might have considered this but at Bearded Theory that weekend...and £110 + bf seems very steep for that line up...not much less than I paid for Bearded and thats for 4 days and a much bigger bill and includes camping. 

Sadly, think it might struggle.

Yes there will be a few festivals that same weekend. With the creation, neighbourhood weekender and Bearded.

I like the lineup but it’s a long drive from London and with tixs, petrol costs and hotel it’s an expensive weekend. I have not 100% ruled it out as the lineup is very appealing to me. Hopefully a similar lineup will happen closer to home. If it was 3 days with more similar acts then I could justify the time and cost.

It would also have been nice to have a few old Creation acts on the bill. I remember going to one of their days at the Town & Country Club (O2 Forum) For around £4.50. I think it was billed as doing it for the kids or something similar. It had around 10 acts over the day including Felt, House of Love, My Bloody Valentine etc. I was a big fan of Creation acts back in the day.

How prices of gigs have gone up. An actual creation act day on this would have been nice. Although, I doubt many are still active.

All in For the cost of the weekend, I could probably see most of the acts doing sets in London. Although if they allowed camping chairs, I would have already bought my tickets and booked a hotel.

Creation had an absolutely insane roster of bands...Super Furrys, Sugar, House of Love, J&MC, Teenage Fanclub, Primals, Arnold etc etc etc. 

Odd that none of them are on at the festival

I thought given the ticket price it would be relatively small but it looks like its 8k capacity.

Yeah, it’s very odd and very obvious for those who know the history of the label. Maybe he was a mean label boss 🙂
