Thread Name: Will Festivals survive this year 2008 ?
Subject: RE: Will Festivals survive this year 2008 ?
I've never been to Saltburn Festival (although I love Saltburn itself)so I con't do a comparison with Pickering, but we'll be going to Pickering because it seems fantastic value for money, has a bri8lliant line-up and it's an easy ride up there from Howden. It certainly seems a better bet than Cambridge, which we've been to for the last few years, especially when the price of petrol is taken into consideration, but I'll reserve judgement till afterwards. Why is £30 excessive for a camper? I've just booked at my usual campsite in Rosedale for the Ryedale weekend and they charge £24 a night.
And why all the grousing, anyway? If you don't fancy it, don't go, but don't be a dog in a manger before it's even got off the ground. I have no objection to people making a profit if they provide good value - but I certainly wouldn't be investing my money in a folk festival.
Good luck, Pickering - I hope it's as good as it sounds.
