sledge Review: Cropredy Festival 2004 (11) RE: Review: Cropredy Festival 18 Aug 04


Had a great weekend, the rain was sort of expected but at least it was not of the Richard Thompson rain god variety.

Vin, sorry to hear about you getting burgled, it happened to quite a few I believe but the police did get a few people on site and a couple of cars were stopped with stolen gear in them trying to leave the camp sites, so maybe some of your stuff is waiting for you at Banbury police station. Nice to meet you, if only briefly.

Music was a good spread, Loved Earl Okin, Richard Digence, the Oyster band were terrific as were Tull, Show of hands and Fairport. The jewell though was the Morris on set, what ever you might think of Ashley Hutchings approach, this was great and kept the attention of a huge part of the crowd, well done I say.

The beer lorry was drunk dry by stages over the Saturday afternoon with first one Ale then another running out and emergency supplies of canned 6X arriving at the last moment.

Sincerely hope that the festival carries on next year in the form we have come to know and love.

Cheers

Sledge.
