Work keeps me away from festivals unless they coincide with holidays which, unfortunately, this does not.

Might be able to make the Sunday though as I finish work earlier.

Of course 40 to see this country's best singer songwriter is always going to be a bargain.  ;)

Zut alors!!  >:(

I'd have to be taking the whole day off to make it worthwhile, bearing in mind the cost of the diesel to get there and back.

Have to mull this one over.

Carefully...

I suppose I'll be limited by funds and time to the 12 Bar again, plus a return trip to Sarfend.

Nice way to start the summer though, innit?  :)

The festival is in disarray at the moment. Rumours abound. Is it on or is it off? No one knows. I would advise anyone thinking of coming to check with the website before you travel. The Damned it seems will definitely not be playing.  ???

These numerous punk 'festivals' all seem to be having a hard time this year. In fact, not just the punk ones. Sign of the financial times I'm afraid.

Friday went ok, but not as many fans as last year, & now I am hearing that the rest of the weekend is cancelled. Great!  >:(

On a good note I finally got to meet Steve the Fish who is a really nice chap.
Also Avondale 45 made the evening really worthwhile by playing a blinding set. Also good were Charred Hearts, Menace & The Rezillos.
