GUEST,Sandra Shrewsbury Festival - How disappointing (69* d) RE: Shrewsbury Festival - How disappointing 08 Oct 08


>Get very loud? Upset people? So you give them a place right in front instead where they can block the view?
they would not have blocked the view if the stage had been the height we ordered

>And does being in front make them any quieter?)   
it MAY not, but seated people can't hear them because there is distance between them

>Was this event billed as a concert or a dance?   
it clearly says in the programme that people will stand in the main marquee

>And I really think you should have cancelled this one if the stage was the wrong height'   
Can you imagine the riot that would have taken place if we had cancelled over a stage – do get real!

>I don't think catering to the demands of those who in the organiser's own words will "get very loud and upset people" sends an attractive signal to the rest of the customers, who will then HAVE to look at them, whether they want to or not, instead of the artists they paid to see.   
It's obvious that all of the people can't be pleased all of the time. Having said that we do try to provide what we hope is a great festival experience for the majority. Feedback is an extremely helpful tool and that is why we have a mosh pit at the front.
