"Oh Jesus Christ no!!" *said in my best Edward Woodward styleeee*

Always have top bands on at this fest Buzzcocks, SLF and I think the Damned have all played in the past. Next yesr could be The Stranglers

Looks like they will be playing and a first it would for the band in this part of Britain unless i'm mistaken.
Young local punk 3 piece(containing 2 Stranglers fans) PAGE4? are hoping to play this festival and have arranged a petition at this site to help them get on the same bill as one of their inspirations.
Get to it guys and gals

Seriously thinking about this, it looks like a good one. It's a shame if the stranglers clash with the dreadzone gig, because I've heard they're very good.

I'm awaiting a reply to an email I just sent to the festival site and will know next week if I can make it or not.

The bus idea is a good one, it'd be the cheapest, fastest and best crack.
I don't know what other people's ideas would be, but personally, I would set off Friday (late morning) to give plenty of time to get tent's up etc, stay the Friday night and come back on Saturday (late morning) to be home for Saturday teatime.

I'd be quite happy to sort out the minibus and do a couple of pick-ups (North/NorthWest England) if it happens.
To make it cheap to do a minibus, it'd need 8 people, but there's 4 'definites' already
Any more than 8 is not a problem, the minibus firm I use do 8,12,14 and 17 seaters, and it works out a bit cheaper the larger they get.

If I can make it to this, I'll post on here next week

Decided not to go to this one now, it's gonna be a dear do just for one night, and seeing as more dates have just been announced it's better for me personally if I opted for one of those.

all the best to anyone who goes, it does look like it could be a good one, don't forget to post a review on ear.
