I doubt this will have much effect on the decision to be honest.
They should invest into atp
Anyway, ATP seem to be their own worst enemy nowadays. They'd probably have cancelled them due to unforeseen circumstances as usual.
Maybe we should start a DiS Kickstarter to start a DiS festival at Camber Sands?
Pitchfork already do a festival in France not unlike atp and nme tried doing one in the past at a holiday camp.
NME's was bands you could see on tour at any point the months it was onsale or locally shortly after.
Kerrang Weekender (which I went to at Camber, and it wasn't helped by Glassjaw cancelling a few days before) didn't really work either because their readers are younger.
A DiS fest like this would be more of a communal thing... a bit like Field Day meets Sonar with a bit of ATP or... I absolutely adored the audio/visual experience of Mutek in Montreal last year, and think that could be an interesting angle, as well as a real ale festival feel.
Much easier to type this idea on a messageboard than get a business plan together and sign-up to Kickstarter like Zach Braff just did http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/film-news/10024772/Zach-Braff-raises-2m-for-Garden-State-follow-up.html
Maybe a vs the fans style set up where attendees can help shape the lineup. Maybe get songkick/detour involved?
probably best to get a working website first though eh?
Yeah, absolutely nothing on this site works, eh pal?
