    This looks pretty cool, and really near me. East Anglia seems to be the new West Country as far as festivals are concerned. I think I'll probably go to this, and Levellers are playing accoustic there. 20th-22nd July. Anyone else up for it?

    Whenever anyone talks about the most beautiful parts of britain, the west country always gets a huge amount of mention, but consider suffolk/norfolk, its like the west country, full of green fields and no large cities or industry spoiling the view.
    seriously tho this looks like a brilliant small festival, very family friendly, but without the huge presence of police. I heard some people at the Big Green Gathering talking about it, how quite a few of the gipsy (the good kind) caravans make an effort to go there. It seems suffolk and norfolk are starting to wake up to the whole ecofestival scene with other smaller festivals starting to become really popular.

    Ok the line up may not be overly splattered with big names (tho they had Hawkwind there last year), and the price is nearly as expensive as Beautiful days used to be, but if you want an atmosphere that doesn't seem put on (fake hippy bollocks) or enforced by the host company like mean fiddler (like a lot of festivals nowadays) then this is certainly the festival for that.

    Give us yokels a chance to show you how we have fun in the countryside! (other than getting it on with our livestock)

    Hmmmmmmmm there ain't any large cities spoiling the view down 'ere. Plymouth, sure...but that's by the sea. As for Industrial estates, it ain't like we put them in the middle of Dartmoor or anything either...

    The raves are soooooooo good in Cornwall. Launceston bank holiday free party in June is always a cracking event!

    Big Green sounds pretty cool, I'm definitely going to go one year, though this year might be a little hectic. Quite a few people from Hipforums go to the Big Green though, keep an eye out in this forum and talk to Jonny2Mad, you could arrange to camp together....

    BGG is a wicked festival, so laid back and chilled. I love the dude that dresses up as a fox and annoys people every year!

    never saw him actually! I'll look harder next time i'm at the BGG.

    in addition
    i think some people misunderstood what i was saying before, didn't say west country had big cities in the way of the views, the polar opposite in fact, just that East Anglia in general doesn't either... lol

    anyway, this is really just a promotional advert for probably the first thing this region has had to offer anything good in the way of music (well for the 22yrs i been alive anyway) without the names "justin - bloody - hawkins" and "lil chris" :$ coming up...

    Totally dude. East Anglia looks like a great place for parties, plus the fields are MUCHOS bigger. Not so much separation and all that.

    I spoke to one of the organisers on the phone today, I might be able to do a poetry performance there. They seemed up for a couple of slots for a free ticket. I've sent them some of my stuff, fingers crossed....

    Hey Jaycee man, great to hear from you again! It's been ages! Eastern Haze have agreed to let me perform, so I'll definitely be going. You want to camp with me, Danny and possibly Jonny? Like old times man, old times....

    so when u getting your ticket?

    I'm still negotiating with them. I can either do a short performance for a half price ticket, or do a talk or something as well for a free ticket. I'm not quite sure what they have in mind, but I've put a few ideas to them and I'm waiting to hear back from them. But you should go ahead and get yours, as either way I'll be doing something there....

    What travel arrangements? We live just down the road!
     
  20. island dweller

    island dweller I Love Wind

    well i mean if we want to travel in the same car or whatever. Just trying to make it sound like more of an effort than it actually is i guess.

    its about 30mins away from us? fair point.
