There is way too much to read all the comments on Sidmouth Festival. Last year I couldn't afford it, I don't know how much it is this year but I probably can't afford it. The only bit I did agree with last year was the ability to camp but not pay for events that you probably won't have time to see anyway. I love Sidmouth but I'm not a fan of the new system. By the time summer comes round I don't have several hundred pounds to spare and I expect there are a lot of younger people who are in the same boat. Like last year I will probably only go to Sidmouth to go to the Anchor. My budget just about stretches to that.
