Thread Name: Will Festivals survive this year 2008 ?
Subject: RE: Will Festivals survive this year 2008 ?
Will they survive? Nope! Wheaton Aston is having it's last fling in a week or so. Burntwood is dead. Festival on the Edge (FATE) has met it's fate also and is finishing this year. Need I go on... I'm sure others can add to this list.
Numbers are down, ticket sales aren't what was expected. It's the extorionate price of fuel, the high price of festival tickets and beer that will kill them off. It's becoming the time for everyone to have unplugged festival parties in local village halls and gardens.
