Subject: RE: Towersey 05 - Thoughts Of A First Timer
Think yourselves lucky that Towersey is a proper folk festival. My lady & I surrendered £65 each (3days) for Cropredy this year and, although some of the music was pretty darn splendid; being treated like one of 25,000 sheep, camping in unsecured areas - open to thievery / tent slashing, insufficient loos and general unfolkyness means we won't be going again.
We would like to stay at Towersey next year, but demand seems to outstrip supply regarding all festivals at this moment in time.
Certainly, I would rather ticket prices rose relative to tent/unit size instead of more camping fields being made available and overcrowding result.
