English Jon 50th and last Sidmouth festival? (233* d) RE: 50th and last Sidmouth festival? 12 May 04

Sidmouth has 3 problems.

It's in the wrong place. It's a pain in the neck for most people to get to.

The weather is horrible. Every year. Move it somewhere warmer.

The campsite is bollocks. Who really wants to sleep at a 45 degree angle?

Broadstairs, which is a week later is always warm and sunny - still a pain to get to, but a damn sight nearer london than sidmouth. The campsite is flat. Broadstairs is getting bigger every year.

Don't mistake me, I love sidmouth festival to bits - but the place is rubbish. Oh yes, you can't park anywhere for love or money. At broadstairs, everywhere is walking distance from the campsite.

I really do think that a change of location could solve a lot of problems for sidmouth. There must be other festivals that run for a week and make a profit? Anyone know any figures for whitby?

Profit is important - Steve has to make a living - so do the artists that support festivals (and festivals support)
