All details are at playfestival.co.uk but here are the basics cause this is just the tease thread, where we want you to chat and not clog up the PLAYnews thread.:



23-27 July in Llanfyllin, Wales, on the site of the rather lovely workhouse festival )

...this is a joke, right?


poo!!!


So, somewhere in the thread was mention of both refunds and of raising money for next year's.

I'm due a refund, but if it could somehow be worked that way, I'm quite happy to have already got next year's ticket (or a significant chunk of it) if that sort of thing (by enough of us) is going to help.


A wise man once said: "You have two ears and one mouth, therefore you should shut the censored up and listen" (though, to be fair, he might not've put it _quite_ like that..)

Posted:I'm sadly in the opposite position. I have spent out a huge amount of money on making hoops and hat stocks to trade at the festival and now am really short on cash as I won't be able to sell anything to recoup that cash. I'm wondering what the time frame is for the money being refunded. I would love to be able to say "keep it" but I'm just too skint to be able to do that and I'm sure there are others like me. frown

Posted:Wot no play?! i've had a few spolit camping trips in Wales, due to the weather. Thats partly why i had reservations about coming this year. Lucky it got washed out now and not whilst the festival was on, really. Otherwise they'd be a more than a few drowned hippies floating about!

Just a question - was it the site that had to cancel the festival or the Play staff decision?





The site is completely uninhabitable and will be so for at least 2-3 months, there wasn't an option to stay as it would be impossible for any event to exist on that site.

Other sites we're investigated but the council following the license laws to the letter and not letting us transfer our license to another site was the nail in the coffin as there wasn't enough time (legally 10 working days) to complete another application.



With regard to refunds, I'm sure I mentioned this earlier...all refunds will be sent by the end of the week, not sure on clearance time into your bank tho.

i'm going back to my job in a couple of weeks time so i'll actually have money to go places (woohoo!), should be down to Bristol for a few days for the convention in september, but hopefully i'll get to see everyone before then smile
