  • Isn't the new site the same as the one that hosts the Green Gathering the beginning of August? It'll seem strange going to a site i'm familiar with and it's a different festie! A like to go to different places for different festivals......

  • I'm sad I cant make this this year. If you like dance music check out the Bimble inn late at night, for 2 of the years I went it was just like a rave in there until dawn. Perhaps that's why they had to move sites!

  • Just kidding about it being too Full On- the line-up is lookin giddily SHIT HOT! :D Fuck, this looks such a good time, i can't wait! Everyone: Go to Sunrise Festie! :p
