Ruth Archer What's happened to Sidmouth? (230* d) RE: What's happened to Sidmouth? 04 Mar 11


The All Stars is a different band, with a totally different lineup. That's why they are in an LNE, unlike Tiggerz last year.

Dartmoor Pixies, like several other Devon artists, do get repeat bookings because of the local connection. Toothless Mary had not previously been an LNE band, and I thought they were ready - artist development.

Some of the other bands we have had recently could be booked this year, it's true - but then what do we do next year? Like the rest of the programme, it's about trying to create a balance and not having an excessive number of repetitions.

To be honest, I am not sure that carrying on the discussion at this level of detail is either helpful or productive. Programmers have to have a certain amount of faith in their own instincts and decisions, as well as talking to people whose opinions they value, which I do regularly. At the end of the day, it's ticket sales that will determine the success or otherwise of this year's programme. I am confident in, and actually rather proud of, our programme for this year, and hope that those who do come to Sidmouth have a great time.
