Subject: RE: Towersey 05 - Thoughts Of A First Timer
Ok...my bit. First time I've camped at Towersey for 21 years and it's quite a bit different from then! I was at the bottom end of third site and it was an awful long way to the loo! I never actually found out where the showers were! Other than that I have no real gripe with camping facilities, though I would still like to see these festivals with a 'camping only' bit for those who can't afford to buy a season ticket or who get no real value out of it cos they only go to the pub. But that's a separate issue....
Not impressed with the line-up either, but then I'm not much into concerts anyway...prefer good song and music sessions. I don't really think, considering the price of the ticket, that I got my money's worth. I also feel that, on top of a £77 ticket, being asked to pay £4 for a program was a bit much. At festivals I've been to in the past, the program was free to people with season tickets.
Had no problem with stewards at all.
Food prices were high and an awful lot of it was burgers and chips. The vegetarian food tent was pretty good though.
However, I too had a really good time. Not sure if I'd go again though. I was on my own this time, but for the whole family to go, the price would make it impossible.
Hey Houston!! Didn't know you were on Mudcat! Sorry I missed seeing you.
