All three have played the festival before; I wonder if the Brasenose is now direct competition to Cropredy? That can’t help…

Adam, I think the Brase is a fest in itself. Seperate ticketing.cracking line up.
It will be interesting to see how village parking copes with ,effectively 2 fests.

That’s my point (I think!) - I wonder how many people are going to the Brasenose/field 8 and not bothering with Cropredy tickets as they offer similar music at a cheaper price? Even if it is a hundred or so, it will still hurt.

One month to go.

No announcement of the "special guest".

There isn't one is there?

I hear the calls that "its contractual" - but at this late stage what benefit is there to be had for not announcing ? People will have August weekends pretty much planned now. Its a bit late to announce somebody < 4 weeks to go and expect ticket sales to pick up as a result. And I really cant see many even ardent fans of Guest X coughing £85 to see them - unless its swifty or the boss I suppose in which case that's cheap.

weird AF.

Probably just keeping it as a genuine surprise til the last moment….that has often happened before but without the pre-announcement of the guest. Ha ha love it Yorkshire Chris!

Brasenose afternoon slot - still not announced.
A long set at the Brase before the mainstage for a bit?
