My thoughts.

The campsite was a mess and wished there was temporary road surface but didn't they have some down last year and all that did was move the quagmire to the end of the surface?

Is it just me or is the bulverton site getting smaller year on year? Having to stand outside whilst they sound check the lne bands (including for the silent disco???????)for at least half an hour in the cold and rain (including for the silent disco???????) lead me on at least one occasion to bugger off to bed rather than freeze my bollocks and feet off. No where near enough provision for seating.

Thought the Ham marquee was brilliant but feel that other venues (notably Bulverton and Blackmore Garden dance tents)are being squeezed to pay for it. It seems to me that the Festival organisers are trying, year on year, to squeeze the dancers into more and more cramped venues until they disappear completely from the festival.   

By far the biggest problem for me was the weather - seemed to be in a permenant depression until Wednesda - can't blame the organisers for that though!
