"Anybody who thinks he/she could do it better should give it a try. It'll be very educational, and more than somewhat chastening."

Though I have been involved with 'folk music' for over 40 years, I have never been to Sidmouth. Its a timing thing. However, I do attend other festivals and I have to say that the above quoted comment is a bit daft. I would think most festival organisers would welcome constructive comments, particularly those by Mr Red. Yes, we all know that festival organisation is an onerous and thankless task, but lets be honest here, the people who do this job thrive on it.
