I'll do what I can to help you know that. I am relieved that you can see the difficulties Julie is facing and that she knows she has a sound and sensible bunch of X-festival organisers who are all behind her and will support her 'on the ground' as it were! I feel at this stage we have to 'make the best' of this years fringe and enjoy what we have with good will and see what comes out of it.
As you know Dave I offered to help the committee (Julie's suggestion) with a direct email to the new organiser of the bands to say that I have details of all the bands who usually take part in the fringe and in sessions and who have been asking what was happening and have recieved NOTHING not even a thanks but no thanks.
I think they have their own agenda, they seem to know what they are doing!
The pheonix festival may emerge next year - who knows?!!
This is interesting....I had this sent to me yesterday.
