Thread Name: Meeting artists at festivals?
Subject: RE: Meeting artists at festivals?
Well the festival explicitly referred to at the start of the thread was Cambridge. Under the previous management Sidmouth would sometimes have a car waiting to whisk the "names" away. Played havoc with the driver's schedule if an early pick up wanted to do some jamming first. A lot of that has to do with parachuting in acts for a single concert of course.
Personally I prefer festivals like Stowmarket or the old National where there is really no distinction between audience and performers and where everybody is there for the duration.
