GUEST,English Jon What do you want from a festival? (73* d) RE: What do you want from a festival? 23 Feb 07

...a gig please! and lots of beer and pretty girls.

Seriously, it's a big job - and finding the right mix to please everybody is very difficult.

Half of the trouble is finding suitable venues, decent sound men etc.

As for the acts, I guess it's got to be a mixture of different styles and traditions for today's market - My advice would be to only book acts that give a sense of passion for what they're doing - you don't neccesarily have to like it, but if that fire is there it's bound to be someone's cup of tea.

Good luck with it,
Jon Loomes
