To be fair, let's post a German version:

Alles noch in Planung, aber es sieht bisher so aus:
EARTHBOUND 2013
Anfang Oktober in Augsburg
http://www.augsburg-tourismus.de/home.html

Welchen Tag würdet Ihr bevorzugen, 4. oder 5. Oktober?

We will probably be heading for Sat. Oct 5th. (TV might still play a "regular" gig on Friday.)
More details soon, I hope.

Flights to Munich not cheap but, as I've not been there before, I could swing as a long weekend away with Mrs S.

Is possible :)

Sorry to hear about this - check if Stuttgart is cheaper. If so, might be worth it, as it's only about 2 hours on the motorway from Stuttgart to Augsburg (same with the train).
If anyone of you UK TUTS need help with their stay in south Germany, let me know via PN (or ask Klaus).

Me and Helen get discounted train travel, so this is probably the way to do it. Cheapest flight far dearer - £167 for a change at CDG or £220 for non-stop - and some of those give you no time to relax and involve getting to the airports at 5am both there and back.

If we go, it's by train

Good news for you who want to buy (train)tickets: TV has confirmed he'll be there...  :)  ;)

Now what's next: I will try and find out how the TUTS will get to our fan-meeting (no idea if we'll have to pay entry to the festival - but I suggest those who come will go and look at the art exhibition etc. anyway)! I will try to find out how much the beer costs.  ;D
I will have to see if there's food or anything available or maybe we can arrange something for some of us to meet in the afternoon...
We'll see.  8)

Good to hear from you. I didn't know about the November tour with BT (yet), so I asked about October.  8)

Yep, I remembered from your comment above, that's why we did October of course. (And also because TV said he'll be in Germany early Oct.)

So will you do the US Earthbound in November then?  ;D

Latest update: a room for our fan-meeting is reserved.
The festival happens in an old Gasworks building!

(Might have a look in the upcoming months if I happen to pass Augsburg.)
Date is uncertain still, should be Oct 4th or 5th. More details soon(ish).  8)
