Yeah, Bowlie 2 sounds like it could be awesome but have you seen the ticket prices?! I'm disgusted!

Is it £175 this year? I think thats £10 more than last year, but for that you get a nice, warm chalet with a full kitchen, decent bathroom, lounge with TV, access to everything Butlins has to offer (including indoor heated swimming pool). Everyhing you need for the chalet (apart from a towel). and of course 3 days/night of music.
Compare that with Indietracks for example as thats probably the closest comparison for Anorak, which is £55 plus approx £60-70 per person accommodation and it's really not that much more.

Either way, would people stop buying chalets as i have to wait 2 weeks to see what the other weekend is before we book. Otherwise, can i be the first to say in Novemeber time 'Does anyone have a spare space in their chalet!'
and that snare drum, that drum roll

it's why we got the presale so quickly it's a lot otherwise(still a lot but saving £20 each is ace!) I'm not so bothered about self catering always live on chips and pot noodles when I go there anyway.

Man, I really want to go to this, but the cost and the difficulty of convincing anyone else to go is probably going to stop me.

Probably best for my bank balance though.

Thanks for that! I had no idea that the chalets were anything more than wooden huts w/ beds in them...

this is true although soon as we got enough people then got the presale link others started moaning that they wanted to come! I kinda felt bad but then tickets might have gone by the time i let everyone know!

Crikey! I know last time there were a lot of relationships formed and even a couple of eventual marriages, but this is taking it to the next level!

Hehe. The only births happening in that room, will be towards the end of the festival when the Imodium has worn off, and 3 days of fast food is delivered.

"Curated by Belle & Sebastian
Belle & Sebastian
Julian Cope
The Vaselines
Frightened Rabbit
Field Music
Howlin Rain
Those Dancing Days"

Little disappointing so far, besides the Vaselines (although i've seen them before).

I like those announcements. Field Music, Frightened Rabbit and Howlin' Rain are excellent live bands.

I might turn out to be wrong on this, but as people's tastes change over 10 years, this is very unlikely to be a carbon copy of the bowlie weekender (if that's what people are expecting).

I was just thinking what a promising start that was.

I think it's ace so far, Julian Cope I've not seen for a while but I always enjoy him live. Those Dancing Days are just wonderful. Frightened Rabbit are excellent. Vaselines are of course fab. Not familiar with Field Music or Howlin Rain but I love checking out bands I've not heard. So excited about this and it's only March!!

Julian Cope was wonderfully nuts at the Portishead one a couple of years ago, not sure if i'll bother watching him again though.

I'm really hoping they get Os Mutantes back.

In LA, recording the new album. On 4th song. Going great. Tony Hoffer is rocking the desk, and engineer Todd's dog, Abbie, is digging it.
