    Ah right. Don't have any I'm afraid, the site was very much under construction when we were there and I think they're trying to keep it under their hats before the paying public get there. We'll be on site from tomorrow though so I'll try and update you then

    Review from a sober e-festival contributor - sounds great.

    "I really enjoyed the festival. It has a great vibe. No moodiness or air of threat at all, which I consider to be very important. Great mix of people from all walks of life. There was also a good variety of live music and dj's. There are also a few food outlets, which sold lovely food, as opposed to trashy food. There were also a few shops on site, but it wasn't overkill on commercialism. The long drop type toilets were kept clean, but some people will insist on pissing on the toilet seats. Free toilet rolls provided throughout the festival.


    I didn't see any litter at all when we left site late on Monday morning. However, they seem not to have separate bins for recycling, but just have big bins for all stuff. I suspect that they might sort the re-cycling out later, but don't know.


    There were two 'rocking' marquees down in a scooped out quarry area. These are where the dj's and rappers etc performed. It'll sound strange, but I have only got in to music much later in life despite going to festivals for over 30 years. As a result, I had, and mostly still have, no knowledge of the people who played there. However, I spent many a happy hour there sitting outside the marquees listening to the music. I have given up on dancing but the marquees were full to the brim with people dancing. Oh, I've just remembered the name of one dj set that I heard - I'm pretty sure they were called Lost Element.


    One thing that I noticed is that nearly everybody who was a smoker simply carried on rolling and smoking within the marquees. There was security going around but never saw them intervene with anybody once.


    There was a great mood all weekend, which was probably enhanced because the weather was good to us.


    Not sure what else to say, but if you have any questions please ask.



    Oh, just remembered - The music was shut down at 2am on Saturday and Sunday mornings and 12pm on Sunday night. There were attempts by people to play their own systems in the campervan area, but they seemed to be closed down as soon as they got started. I think a lot of people hang around the fire area in the quarry after the music stops. Plus groups of people obviously go back to camp to chat further there in to the wee hours.


    Would I go again? Yes I would."
