Subject: RE: Towersey 05 - Thoughts Of A First Timer
Towersey was certainly extremely busy this year and maybe some of the problems resulted from that extra pressure on the site and the organization.
I spoke to many people who had decided to give Sidmouth a miss this year and just come to Towersey.
The Towersey organisers have a pretty good track record so I guess they will learn from this year and plan for a greater number of visitors next year.
I cannot agree the line-up was poor. Just look at the crowds for Kate Rusby, Rolf Harris et al.
Neither would I criticise the stewards.
My only criticisms would be that the site and infrastructure couldn't quite cope with the huge influx of visitors.
If Towersey is to expand as Sidmouth contracts then careful thought must be given to changing the site layout and putting in more toilets, showers and litter bins.
As a Towersey regular (and former Sidmouth regular) I trust the organizers to learn from this year and ensure Towersey continues to be one of the best festivals around.
