I'd agree with that - top notch sound all weekend.

thanks for understanding yad

it was a nightmare tbh - but yes, my dog sat on guard - almost as if he knew what was going in - bless him

I hadn't tripped for about 15 yrs so it was quite an ordeal when it wasn't planned

My bad for leaving drinks while I went for a wee - though I'd have thought MOST people at Hawkfest wouldn't do that to someone

Gotta laugh though - at one point I was standing on the Lifeboat in Yarmouth with some bloke saying 'ur not supposed to be here' - cos it had flashy lights on it :)

Lots of good things:

ALL the bands' sets that I saw (and managed to get piccies of most of them despite my camera taking a dislike to red lighting - best not do Amsterdam then...)

Meeting so many friends old and new, fans like me or band members - they all seem to be equally friendly

Meeting (and re-meeting) many fine folk from here - Capt Spacelord, Haz, Bald8Ball, Maddog, Festichick, Dazzy B to name just a few ('cos it's all gone that hazy that I have difficulty recalling the names of all you other brilliant folks - many apologies!)

The setting and the whole vibe of the place

Walking upto the top of the barrow on the golf course and taking pics of the whole panorama - and someone thinking that, since I had a certain set of clothing on, I was just up there posing in the wind... It did elicit a remark from somebody that they didn't realise the strength of those "special" ciggies....

Bad things:

not being able to catch all of the sets of all of the bands

not being able to remember the names of all of the fine folk that I met......

and a bit of a panicky moment on Sunday night when I truly realised exactly how far from home I really was...

All sounds like a lot of fun, except for the weather and the one dodgy stall-holder (who needs to be identified and outed, word put around the festivals). As for the prices quoted by various people then with the possible exception of the beer it doesn't sound too bad. I was t the Welsh Food Fair today where £3.50/4.00 a burger or a puny bowl of something or other was the norm. I guess we've always paid a premium for being a captive audience at fests and it may have something to do with what organisers charge for concessions, bearing in mind stall holders need to make their cut otherwise there's no point them doing it.

Oh, and also my sympathy to the guy who was spiked, never a clever thing to do to anyone. What if it was a child who picked up the drink and thought it would be a good idea to have a few illicit swigs? No, not cool at all.

On the whole, though, it sounds like a good time was had. Well done to all involved.
