Steve....where abouts on midlands do you live?
Market Bosworth..near Tamworth
about 40-50 from me then, i live in evesham
know it well..pass through it on the way to Devon/Cornwal
lol, bit of a rubbish place really,haha
The good thing about living in the Midlands..Most Festivals aren't too far away:)
im a member of a vauxhall car club, so go to a few shows with the club, but next year the club is finishing, so i am going to try to make it to more hippy festivals
Sunrise and Beautiful days are my favourites. I fancy trying the Secret garden party..it looks fun
Yeah, but I think it has a very Buddist base, which I'm not entirly comfortable with..but it does seem fun
Apparently it is sold out..so not this year
If you go please tell me what it was like:)
Shambala is held in the grounds of a Buddhist sanctuary but there is very little Buddhism at the festival, much more about green issues.
Thanks for that ..are you going?
Thanks Clover. The festiavl looks fantastic, but unfortunatly too far for me this year (might try next year though)
Cheers for that
We've just been to the most amazing little festival in Doune, Stirlingshire, Scotland, called 'Doune the Rabbit Hole'.... if its running next year I would highly recommend it - AMAZING!!!! Beautiful countryside, Beautiful location, Beautiful people, Beautiful music - everyone was buzzing round with Beautiful smiles it was that... Mega (lol, bet you thought I was going to say beautiful... well it was that too! Amazing vibes and so relaxed - everything you'd want)
Oh and we're off to Solfest and to Eden - Cannot wait!!!
