Our original caterers have confirmed for 2008 YAY.
We are pleased to welcome onboard "Sorry No Burgers" who we've worked with at a few festivals last season and their food is really something else, great portions and great prices. Mmmm

Posted:Newsflash!!

we want to know your preference people..
the opportunity has arisen for us to get Nizlopi (JCB Song) for our festival in June.

We want to know:

Do you want them wink i.e would you prefer a band like nizlpoi playing a chilled afternoon set

OR

a cheaper band with our limited funds spent elsewhere around the festival.

We ask because we want to put on want YOU want to see wink post here or PM me biggrin

Posted:I don't think I've ever heard of Nizlopi, I may have done, but I'm not bothered either way. I'll be going anyway! ubblol

IMHO, i think the festival is a great opportunity for newer bands to play.

Posted:Personally, I would spend the money on other areas of the festival making them tip top rahter than let them slip just to have a big name in.

Stick four monkeys on stage with cardboard box and elastic band guitars and I'd be happy.

Whilst music is important, I just dont think its justifiable spending what I'm pressuming is going to be alot of money, to have a name that everybody knows.

Plus I think its nice to see newer bands getting exposure smile

Posted:Ditto Aimee and Blu.

I think a nice cafe would be better next time. That burger van was rubbish (no offence) but for a vegetarian, all you can eat is chips really. Chips and burgers for breakfast was a bit grim. hug
