    Think its down to whether Adrianne Sherwood is doing the mixing/Dubbing efx etc,saw them play at some thing in ,i think Brockwell P ark,they were ok but lacked that sonic pulverising primal sound,which i suppose harder to recreate live then but now..if we do make it ill be down the front anyways:D

    You've beaten me to it, I was going to post that information!! :D :D

    Also, I hear from FB (from someone in the know, Flip who runs the Dance Tent) that Bearded Theory tickets are almost sold out, so get moving everyone who hasn't yet secured theirs! :eek:

    Anyone have any idea whether there'll be shuttles to and from the station? no mention on the site or efestivals or anywhere else that I can find.

    Train tickets are cheap, but if there's no way of getting from the station to the site then the taxi fare will more than double to total travel cost.

    Hang on Stig , I'm sure (very sure) that I've heard something about this. Will do a bit of digging.

    ETA : Is this page any use for you? Those buses cost, but less than a taxi I reckon! :)

    That info is from 2014.

    They're not running any shuttle buses from stations this year, wasn't enough uptake last year.

    Shit! Sorry :oops:, I definitely didn't notice the 2014 thing (so obvious as well, that's embarassing) :(

    Pages like that should be taken down.

    OK, let's try again ... I posted the wrong page from the festival site, in rubbish post #64 above. Fuck knows what that old shuttle page from 2014 was doing still hanging around the Bearded Theory site.

    I take it Stig that you've already thought about taking a National Express coach direct to site?

    Looks like the one from London Victoria leaves from there at 7 am on Thursday 25th May, £43= return apparantly. If that's any good at all ...

    National express sucks. I went somewhere on one of their coaches and they didnt stop for a break, even tho they were supposed to, so I couldn't have a cigarette.

    Indeed. National Express sucks. Why pay upwards of 40 quid for a four hour hellish uncomfortable journey, when you can do the same journey by train in an hour and a half for £17?

    The answer is of course, because there's no way of getting from the train station to site. :mad::facepalm::rolleyes:

    Train is usually more expensive than national express.. But if in this case its not then why can't you just get a taxi from the train station to the site with the spare £23?

    "spare" lol.:p

    I would assume taxis would be hugely expensive for that sort of distance and possibly refuse to take festivalgoers, but that might just be my londonyness talking. I'll phone round a few and ask, and see what the score is.

    Our mate Andrew (the Tatton brewer) is coming from Manchester by National Express, which is why I'm talking about that as an option. I suppose Manc is a bit nearer to BT than London is though.

    And agreed that London fare is not cheap ... in fact I was astonished it was that much.

    I hope whatever option you end up with work out for you OK anyway though Stig

    Where does your £17= railfare take you to -- Derby?
     
  14. Stig

    17 each (with railcard) is Euston to Lichfield Trent Valley (1 hour, 29 minutes, direct). can't complain. :thumbs:

    I'll start phoning taxi firms at some point soon, I just really really hate using phones so it's a bit of a stumbling block ATM. Maybe Monday.

    Been listening to Alabama 3 a lot just lately, I'm so happy that they'll be plying Bearded. One of my many must-sees:) :cool:

    Lichfield Trent Valley is your best option from London. Burton is a gnats knicker closer but no direct trains from London.

    It's insane that the boring village i grew up in now hosts such a cool festie. Not quite in the Glastonbury league obviously but I've heard it mentioned alongside Shambala etc.

    That is definitely your Londonyness talking.

    Certainly you could get a taxi from Burton on spec no problem - there is a taxi firm based at the station however LTV is a bit smaller and I'm not 100 per cent sure if they have a rank.

    Lorca Somebody, after all, had to make a start

    yeah, our tickets arrived too, can't wait - just got to repair the tent now, since some drunken fuck-stick fell into it and broke a pole last year :D (luckily we weren't in it at the time.)

    Hello :D Are you sorted, otherwise could try asking around, the Vloody lot have 70+ folk coming, someone may be able to pick you up?

    Hello! :D Thanks for reminding me; I need to book taxis today for this. After the first lift went utterly pear shaped I'm just going to go for the simple option I think. But thanks!

    Aye we'll be there for them after African Head Charge I think. May even hang around for the entertainment watching some of the crowd at NMA. :D

    Funke And The Two Tone Baby is another must-see
