    You're not going to find a very positive reception for Field Day here, I'm afraid!

    Why's that? I only went once to the one in victoria park and it was a blast. Granted I was off my tits on pills mind you... But it was a more diverse lineup than most festies.

    I don't recall anyone ever being against the festival itself, just the logjam of oversized festivals that was being shoehorned into an inappropriately small park.

    ska invita back on the other side

    i find him genuinely boring ... hipster house from what i can tell
    somehow one of his pretty boring tunes had a picture of winona ryder on the youtube video and ended up with millions of views...algorithm power...even i watched it for no apparent reason...a case of the modern world not making any sense to me

    I seem to recall you being against this, and any other festivals that made money for corporations, in Brockwell Park? No matter, let's not shit this thread up too.

    I was against an entire summer of money-making festivals keeping the park fenced off. I've never been against all festivals in the park and said that ages ago.

    That said , I wish it wasn't massive corporates running the shows and I wish there was far more promotion of local acts.

    friendofdorothy it is so much worse than Thatcherism now

    That wall would look so much better with graffiti.

    They are puting metal barriers up all over the place around the pavements around the station, bridge and park entrance. Barriers everywhere.

    Its scaring me.

    shakespearegirl just worked out taglines

    The wall is pretty fucking huge!! It does feel (rightly or wrongly) so much more imposing than previous festival held in Brockwell Park
     
  20. Winot

    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    They’re gonna build a beautiful wall and they’re gonna make Herne Hill pay for it.

    I think Fri and Sat are 'Field Day' (sic) and Sun is Hoopla. Much better line up IMO. TLC! Who doesn't want to see them?

    Actually at £45, maybe not.

    Worth it just for Belinda Carlisle.
