I'm off to this at the weekend. Are you? Have you been before? I haven't. What's the deal/vibe/score/inside line?
none of my IRLs are going, but moussee said i could tag along with his MME crew.
Our perhaps Alkaline Quartet?
what I remember; good site, main field was fine and the other two tents were decent. The smallest tent was too small really, but I would imagine they've replaced that. Parking was really close and they took some fences down so you could drive in to pack up your stuff on Sunday. Once you were in the gate that was it, no more wrist band checks to get in the main arena or anything. Pleasant vibes, but we did have great weather. Silent disco, meh.
But since they started ArcTanGent the line-ups have generally become less interesting for me.
It's a really nice little site, cheap, you can wander around with your own beers, etc. Tbh the last year I went the vibe seemed to have changed slightly, and there were a few prats about, which there weren't before. Guess it's inevitable really once an event becomes bigger.
this will be my 8th year I think. love it there. You can wander around freely with your own booze, which is nice. And it's really small so you never miss anything, that's nice too. The Cave is always the place to be, it's nice there. They've also got a nice area in the forest with hammocks n stuff. Everyone there seems really nice.
Looking fwd to Kerbdog tunes and Falco commentaries.
It was pretty horrendous at points. Musically, spot on though. I remember 2013 being stupidly hot in comparison.
I'm in the same camp here, ArcTanGent's lineups appeal to me more nowadays. Found it's a little watered down in comparison. That being said, there's still a lot of good stuff going on after those first announcements.
it rained a shitload
Been a few times, lovely festival. main stage headliners are a bad choice this year but the 'mid tier' bands on the line up are excellent.
They're just not for me. Had never heard of Deaf Havanah and when I listened I mainly hated them. Odd choice.
the antacid trio might be a bit of fun if they play the hits, i guess
