    Hi Enjoyyourself,

    Yep we are, have been going for years in fact we have just booked chill out time after Cropredy has finished on a campsite in the next village for 2 more days.

    Looks like a good lineup as it usually is, specially enjoyed Hayseed Dixie who performed last year.

    If you are going may well see you there amongst the other 20,000 :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Just booked - been meaning to go for years.
    Big RT fans and will be good to see Joan Armatrading again.
    First saw her supporting Supertramp in Coventry in 1976!
    Look out for us sporting our Funster sticker.

    Thinking about it

    I have been a couple of times and enjoyed it. This year's line-up looks very good, so may well go.

    Very tempted by that line-up, particularly Joan Armatrading, and I just love Bellowhead!

    I saw Fairport this time last year and was a bit disappointed to be honest. They seemed knackered and there wasn't the usual 'oomph'.

    Anybody who's interested in the smaller folkie festivals, by the way, could do worse than get to Fishguard at the beginning of June (that elongated bank holiday weekend) followed by the Gower festival the following weekend.

    And, of course, you'd get to see three users of this site in concert!!

    We have our three day tickets and the leave is booked so we will definitely be going along. Wanted to go last year but we had to back out at the last minute. Sounds like a great weekend and we will also be sporting the Fun Sticker for ID purposes.

    Looking forward to Richard Thompson, Joan Armatrading, Squeeze and especially the Sawdoctors. Don't know what to expect from Fairport Convention, but after a Bob Dylan concert a few months ago nothing can be more of a let-down.

    Our tickets arrived this morning. We have been going for the last 7 years, really good weekend and will be our first festival in the new Land Rover motorhome. See us in field 2 (if we get there early).:BigGrin:
