Firstly, for the record, I am not in any way connected with Mr Wozniak - merely an often gobsmacked reader of his website!

Regarding the Bulverton finances - yes I am just guessing.

Just because it isn't as loud as other festivals doesn't make it right. If I can lie in my tent at the bottom of the camp site and listen to the music then that kind of suggests that it is too loud.

From my experience at the Blackmore I know that Licensing, Health & Safety, Police and Environmental Health all take a keen interest. Anything that makes them take a keener interest, like complaints from the public about noise, should be avoided because whenever they appear life seems to get more complicated i.e don't make yourself a target.

I am not advocating axing venues just because they are expensive - I am not that stupid. All I am saying is look at the cost-effectiveness of venues and when you do it makes sense to look at the expensive ones first. I am guessing that the Ham is cost effective because it appeared to be full of paying punters most of the time - but hey what do I know....
