What with Glasto taking a year off next year Vince Power has decided to resurrect the Phoenix festival.
Reg, for some reason I seem to recall you mentioning this festival at some length at one of the Reading forum meet-ups...though my memory doesn't yield anything more specific than that! Worth investigating?
If your all about the destination, take a fucking flight. We're going nowhere slowly but we're seeing all the sights. And we're definatly going to hell...but we'll have all the best stories to tell.
I loved Phoenix - went to all five. It was great because it wasn't over-crowded, had a huge arena and campsite, clean toilets (these factors may all be affected by a possibly low attendance...) and great bands. If it's at Long Marston again (outside Stratford on Avon) it should be good, though no doubt there will be 80,000+ there rather than the 30,000 or so it got 15 years ago...
