I wanted to go last year but it's not a dog friendly festival so I went to Cropredy instead. Very laid back with loads of food outlets and a good bar, all at sensible prices. The whole village joins in so you can get a decent breakfast at the Church Hall , the Rowing Club or Cricket Club and there is no problem with taking your own food and drink into the arena either. You can also take folding chairs and sunshelters as long as the shelters are down in the early evening. Loads of dogs and no problems with them at all. It runs on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with Fairport (the organisers) headlining on the Saturday. There's a car boot sale on the Cricket ground one morning and Fairport and friends take on the local team on the Sunday morning. The two village pubs also put on bands as a fringe event so you can get a burger and a beer there as well.

Don't get me wrong, out of the three this one is MY favourite - just no contest when the dates for this and Larmer Tree moved together.

Regarding Rhythmtree, they have AGAIN set up a clash with Larmer Tree Festival, which is aimed squarely at the same audience and music taste.

Unfortunately, I, and at least ten of my friends, will choose the mainland Festival instead. Sorry

Go on IW Festival Site - click on line-up - you'll find 6 big names (you, obviously, won't agree!) already listed, even though we're only half way through January. Further delving, and I found some interesting and very reliable rumoured artists.

Still riding the same hobby horse ?????
