Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?

Never hold your farts in! They travel up your spine, go into your brain and that's where shitty idea's come from.

Posted:The Blues Fest is over Easter.. they get great acts but IMHO it is a dreadfully crowded and unpleasant space and the noise bleed between venues is the worst I've ever experienced in any festival anywhere! There isn't a lot of street theatre or anything really apart from the big crowded music tents. I've been a few times but won't bother again., no matter how great the acts are! It's not like Woodford or Confests or those more community spaces..

There are loads of spinners in and around Byron... the ones I could put you in touch with leave town this time of year though! If you stay at the Arts Factory and spin down at the beach you will probably meet some likeminded people....
