Anyone know anyone that is there?
so yes, people.
I'm there for the Thursday night.
have been told there are about 200 this year, though
would be great fun.
I know a few chalet's-worth.
but I really couldn't handle spending 10 nights there. 3 days of Minehead in the winter and the depression sets in big time.
but it felt a bit too much. I can't decide if being part of such a small crowd would be insanely brilliant or a bit depressing. I wonder if it's commercially viable with only 200 punters?
Good bands playing though.
Some interesting words with Barry Hogan. Sounds like they won't be doing double weekends at Butlins in the future.
and "All Tomorrow's Parties celebrated its tenth anniversary last December with a very special birthday party curated by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs" is just totally wrong.
I'm sure something recently said they're switching to a one in May, two in December programme from next year.
Personally, I think the double-weekenders work better when spaced out. Dirty Three and Fans I were about three weeks apart and that was much better, dragging yourself into work for three days in between is soul crunching.
I was just interested in the implication that that they are consciously moving away from doing the Butlins thing. I wonder if they'll ever do anything up north? Without accommodation the Alexandra Palace thing isn't going to be such a draw for people outside the capital.
