    Well rookfest wasn't exactly over-subscribed. But was a lovely afternoon and both Meatraffle and pre-goblin superb - definitely worth £10 (;)).
    And beer was only £4 per pint - which is good in London, nevermind in an outdoor event these days

    I thought the bill looked great, albeit priced a bit too high for what was on offer, IMO.

    Did you take any pics?

    Not sure this captures the sheer size of the crowd. This was shortly before there was a request for everyone in the audience to take one step back to avoid crush injuries.
    Apologies for the poor quality: it was taken with a phone and I was experiencing challenges to my coordination at this stage

    Blimey that is quiet. Shame. If they'd charged £3 or something they probably would have made more money - or even made it free and hassled for donations. Pregoblin are great, aren't they?

    Tbf it was a bit busier at the front once Meatraffle got going - and I loved pre-goblin once I’d got over the surprise of the level of “disco-ness” in the music. Both bands managed to get the punters up on stage.

    We can disagree about pricing policy: I still thought it good value and I don’t know if anyone stayed away because of the pricing = suspect it was more due to low profile marketing and no one knowing about it.
    Personally I will spread the word and hope to go again. Especially if they have that kind of band (although it may be a bit left field for many potential punters)

    I stayed away because of the price, and I found it a bit difficult to find out what was going on.

    We just ended up going to Brockwell for a stroll about, but if there had been something on at a fiver, I might have taken a chance on it.

    Fair enough - so perhaps pricing was a factor - though we seem aligned re publicity levels
