If they play by the same rules as everyone else then I will consider it, but signing up every band under the sun and giving away all the tickets is not fair on the other Prog festivals in the UK.

But I'm sure I read somewhere that theirs is the only dedicated prog festival in the country.

Where "dedicated" is another word for "bloody freezing".

Despite Fish and Crimson Sky playing, I can't justify going :-( I have no confidence that it won't be a complete Ferrari like the last one.

Even though it is in Wales, it might as well be on Mars - it is hard to get from South Wales to North Wales (and the north is full of gogs)

I remember Evs telling me that the rail journey from his gaff near Cardiff is of a very lengthy time.

I just checked the train time - 7 and a half hours from Wokingham with changes at Reading and Birmingham.  The Birmingham to Pwllheli train takes over 5 hours, calling at Smethwick Galton Bridge, Wolverhampton, Telford Central, Wellington (Shropshire), Shrewsbury, Welshpool (which is near Hartlepool), Newton (Powys), Caersws, Machynlleth, Dovey Junction, Penhelig, Aberdovey, Tywyn, Tonfanau, Llwyngwril, Fairbourne, Morfa Mawddach, Barmouth (should be Aberbar), Llanaber, Talybont (which is next to Talyho), Dyffryn Ardudwy, Llanbedr, Pensarn (Gwynedd), Llandanwg, Harlech, Tygwyn, Talsarnau, Llandecwyn, Penrhyndeudraeth, Minffordd, Porthmadog, Criccieth, Penychain, and Abererch.

I think if I were on that train, by the time I got to Pwllheli, I would (a) be able to speak Welsh, and (b) be completely off my rocker.

So there's no chance, none whatsoever, that it might actually be good? A thin, sliver of a chance? Maybe worth considering? No?

If they've moved out of the freezer, it may be worth it. Everybody I've spoken to who has actually attended a Hard Rock Hell seemed to enjoy themselves, and said the facilities were excellent. But one thing to consider is that the whole deal is based around being on-site and staying in the on-site accommodation.

There is certainly no point in buying a ticket yet.  We may as well wait for the last minute 20-for-1 offer.

Now you're just making words up.

Welshpool is nowhere near Hartlepool! You must be thinking of Blackpool or Liverpool.

IIRC, the hotel packages were ridiculously expensive. The facilities might be good, but it's going to price a lot of people out of going. As is the location by the looks of it.

This is where festivals like Celebr8 get it right - you can get there by public transport and there's a couple of reasonably-priced places to stay near to the venue.

Most of the time, the problem I have with festivals isn't the ticket price, it's the cost of trying to get there or if it's even possible to get there by public transport.

Yes indeedy. We need to teleport the whole Wath-on-Dearne on top of Slough. No-one would notice.
