This looks good. Could be a fitting replacement for all those people who miss Americana festival. And they got Billy Bragg too.

Looks like a good one. I first saw the ad in Country Music mag the other day. I see there is public transport & shuttle bus, but I could not find any info about nearby hoted accomodation. I am not interested in camping!

If i go I would go for the Saturday & stay in Rugby overnight before travelling home next day!

I think I might cancel my subscription to Country Music Magazine or resubscribe at a later date to get a better offer.

Yeah, good lineup. I'd like to see Turner and Asleep at the Wheel but both are headlining different stages on the Sunday! And the fact that I'm flying to Ireland that day also gets in the way slightly!!n :lol:

I've given up on outdoor festivals. No more mud for me! I am going to Wessex Folk Fest, but that is all round the harbour at Weymouth with lots of pubs to shelter in if it rains!
