Glastonbudget. Greatest festival.

Postby sleepflower on Sun Mar 26, 2006 5:06 pm

The first one ever was last year. It is a festival in the Leicestershire countryside (an East Midlands version of glastonbury).

There are 2 stages. One for new bands, and the other, for the worlds greatest tribute acts of the biggest bands (I went last year, these are the best there is).

Such a laugh, and cheap.

Sun, an ale festival there too. It's cheap. Two days camping.

check it out..

Well, I don't know about Glastonbudget, but I do know that Julien (The Filth and the Fury) Temples Glastonbury documentary is coming out in the UK on the 14th of April. Apparently its edited together from peoples personal footage from over 35 years. I love Glastonbury and I enjoyed The Filth and the Fury, so am hoping this will be a good tasty mud pie of a recipe.

Personally I love all the druidic, ley line spirituality of the fest, so am hoping it'll catch that historical/new age vibe too.

Best festival: Isle of Lucy. Rock/jazz. Mid-'70s.

Was not a question of what is the best festival, just wondered who liked the idea of going?

I am definitely and wondered who would like to join me.

Damn. How could I forget that? You were there, of course, so you remember easily.

Sorry, sleepflower. We're just playing silly games.

Well as time approaches (Ithink it alwaysdoes that, but hey), the festival is in the bank holiday at the end of this month. Two stages, one new bands, the other the best tribute rock bands in existence (Queen tribute headlining one day).

So you should all really go.

Ale festival there too, market village thing. Medieval banquet food, as well as all the usual stalls.

Cheap ticket and easy travel.
