Not that I would necessarily ever venture forth, but the venerable Bonnaroo festival in Tennessee has been cancelled on short notice due to Hurricane Ida, which soaked the festival grounds beyond repair.

Just back from Shrewsbury and can't add to Andy's summing up but where was Andy Leslie?  Shocked Grin We were in and out the gates, walking between stages, hanging around the amazing village green stage watching the wonderful Morris dancing, trying to cause havoc in the Pavilion bar, sat outside drinking, never caught sight of him the whole weekend. Reading his write up I reckon he was permanently in one of the bars.  Wink

Oysterband didn't want their performance streamed due to John Jones having treatment on his vocal chords. He said Shrewsbury festival was a huge effort and now their imminent tour has been cancelled until next spring when they will launch their new album. We thought it was a cracking set but John's voice didn't seem that strong at times.

You can read all about it here...

No, we kept well away from the Berwick as it was Superspreaderland. I don't drink alcohol these days so the lure of the bars was very limited.

We were working 4 hours a day on Artists Reception, so got to meet many of the performers, their family and friends. Since that was at the side of the Cuckoo stage, we stuck in that area, mostly, although we were camped stage right of the Skylark stage.

Hope to be back next year, perhaps see you then?

Glad to see that GBFF Skeggy end of the month is demanding negative test or covid passport before entry to site this year!

I don't think that is at all legal however it can be written into contract requirements which ticket buyers  will have to enter into upon purchasing  a ticket, often unknowingly without reading the smallprint

It's perfectly legal.

Also, the right thing to do.

Towersey line up for next year seems to be moving further away from it’s folk origins with Del Amitri, Turin Brakes, Tom Odell and er.. Howard Jones. All in all looks quite decent though.

Contrary to the euphoria over NFFF line up, the early announcements for both Cambridge and Moseley (2 of my favourite festivals) are a bit disappointing. Hoping for better to come.

Not announced yet, but Marion Fleetwood has said she's been recruited.

Have to agree about Cambridge but it will get better as it always does. May be the year to listen to the smaller stages.

Most of this month's Celtic Connections has been cancelled. Full details of what remains are still to be published. I had tickets for 4 events and had confirmation that one is cancelled so far, but don't hold much hope for the others going ahead   Sad
