was amazing. one of the best matches i've ever seen and a cracking atmosphere with it.
even though we lost, we all still had a great weekend.
just this quote annoys me: "Organiser John Giddings said the match would not be screened at the event "because it's a festival of music"."
Didn't you know?
"are they showing our festival at the World Cup?"
Could he miss the point any more?
Not that I care since I'm not going but still, he sounds like a tool.
what a cunt. So, people into music don't like football? He shouldn't be allowed to run a festival.
Pffft, Isle of Whight festival hasn't been good since 1969, apparently.
They shouldn't sell food and drink.
It's not a festival of food and drink.
What's with all this food and drink everywhere?
I thought this was a festival of music.
And what's this... football!
I'm going home to listen to more Bach in my sensory deprivation tank.
to a tank festival.
But Mr Giddings refused, saying: "Are they showing our festival at the World Cup?"
I don't know who Mr Giddings is, but he sounds like a cock
Isle of Wight festival isn't big on choices. ONE STAGE! YOU MUST WATCH!
i hate 2006
didn't they realise there was a World Cup on? So they are not going to be able to watch the football. Boo Fucking Hoo.
he was a kind honest man.
huh huh huh, huh, huh huh huh huh, huhuh huh...
you might miss..uhm...whoever's on that one stage.
LMAO! Sorry, but I can't help but laugh, I don't think there's ever been a riot here ever. The football field place down the road is screening it but can only hold so many people, but they're expecting 10,000 people or so to be going down to watch. Apparantly people who work in shops in Newport have been learning how to barracade themselves in in the event of an emergency. It's ridiculous.
France V England in the 2004 Championships at the festival. Everyone was loving it until England conceeded 2 late goals thanks to Zidane and a dodgey Gerrard backpass. Although I didn't see any trouble I heard that there was some. That might be why they have changed policy, but its still a stupid thing to say, and yeah Newport is gonna be f**king heaving (its only a small town). It strikes me that it would be safer and better organised to have it at the festival, although I'm not expecting riots!
everyone to take laptops.
to a festival.
