Didn't tickets go on sale around this time last year?
i think it was around march
they went on sale at the start of February, and sold out in early March I think.
they're not out yet for this year.
go and watch the video from 2006.
It must have been the rain today sparking off a memory.
That and Bananna Smoothies
if tickets were on sale you couldn't avoid hearing about it on drownedinsound.
they go on sale on the internet march 1st, at £45 with an extra £5 parking fee.
it's not true that tickets were going up to 60 quid for the weekend then?
are there any rumours on the bands yet?
last year, and it was one of the acest weekends I can remember.
had been my first festivals. Truck was probably the awesomest thing ever last year. i will definitely be there this year :)
(If I go...which is likely)
it'll be my first DIS festival with tents. you lot better not wimp out.
It'll be great! even if it isn't my first festival or first DiS festival.
we being 4 or 5 Magicians who dont know, which is probably most people. I've been talking to the festival man and we come with strong recommendation so fingers crossed. I've been every year since 2000 - it was £15 the first year I went! Definitely be going this year even if they don't ask us to play, but I'll probably be crying most of the weekend if so.
Yes, tickets went on sale locally in February last year, and I have relations in the area so managed to get tickets early without actually being local. Definitely going back this year.
4 or 5 Magicians! Please play on the Sunday so you can sing "Happy Birthday" to me. Thanks.
I guess the only reason they wouldn't ask us is if a) they didnt personally think we were any good, or b) if they didnt think anyone would want to watch us.
Hopefully our list of industry and truck associate recommendations will do the trick. Or they might just really like us like most other people seem to, haha!
but if you don't get booked, I'll give you £20 to do an acoustic set outside my tent. Sound good?
Sounds ace. I actually played in front of about 70 people last year, just me and an acoustic guitar, with the guy who owns the farm on a big bongo drum backing me up. I did MMMBop by Hanson and She Bangs The Drums by The Stone Roses. It was great. After I played I let a guy dressed as Santa play Highway To Hell.
Nothing beats the last night of Truck!
I'll probably be there this year too.
Last year was my first festival, it was ace. If I can get the time off work I'm definately going this year.
i'll go this year.
the Aphex Twin comeback?!?
we should record that and send it to Mr D James?
Although R D James no? I mean we don't want to send it to goalkeeping supremo David James by mistake.
a clerical error there. Sorry everyone.
aphex twin comeback? exsqueeze me? a baking powder?
but will try and go this year if i have the money. oh yes.
for sure. seriously.
