Lets not get confused with beer in the camping field and beer on the festival site itself. New Forest doesn't allow own beer inside festiavl, but food ok, and you can come and go as much as you like, so can have a few beers at the van throughout the day. They also allow water but also have a fresh water tap too. Wickham doesn't allow own beer on festival site, Victorious doesn't allow re admittance by the way, and no food or drink or chairs!

Tickets arrived, bought at Tier 2 prices - ticket numbers were just over 2,500, so talk of 8,000 sold at tier 1 is well off the mark.  I would guess that 2,500 were sold at tier 1 prices (I bought very shortly after they sold out - even got a car sticker for heaven's sake - for the first time in years).  Perhaps the same number are being sold at tier 2 prices (Fairport website reporting just 300 tier 2 left).  So a lot of people (those buying at tier 3 or 4) are going to be paying at least £10 more than they did last year.  Can't help wondering if this price hike (at the end of the day, that is what it is) is going to put people off.

Is a £10 year-on-year increase really enough to put people off? I wouldn't have thought so.

I live in a Sam Smith's beer town, last night's round of 3 pints of bitter, 1 pint of lager & half a lemonade was £9.30. †Drinking down south can be a bit of a shock to my wallet. Sleepy

Sitting in Tooting Market reading this. Just paid £15.25 for one pint of locally brewed lager and a large G&T.
Wadsworths in the field can do little wrong, barring the hot year they ran dry, in my books! :-)

Just noticed that 3 Daft Monkeys have announced they are playing at the Brasenose on 14th August . Its been a while since they played at the main Festival - thought they were great in 2008 and 2010, surprised they have not been asked back since.

Not sure where to post this but if anyone
has a spare/ unwanted Field 8 ticket then
we and our blind black labrador would take
it off your hands. He likes that Field you see
and I didnít realise until too late about the
separate arrangements

I'll be online on Feb 3rd to buy my Saturday ticket. I was going to do Friday and Saturday, but that would work out £100 more (incl camping), and I'm not convinced my back can take 2 nights on an airbed any more...

I got in early, as I usually do for the three-day festival ticket, I'm quite happy about the cost, increased prices are what they are I'm afraid. However,  this will probably be my last full Cropredy weekend, after 33 years of doing the two, then, three-day event, I think I'll just go for the Saturday shows in future, after all, across the decades my main reason for going to Cropredy is Fairport.

Cant summon up the enthusiasm to book yet even though we've done 30 odd on the trot. Just don't feel excited at the line up at all. I'll probably succumb in the end and camping was booked months ago so we'll be there anyway.
