Firefest just keeps getting better each year :)

 

I think this might be their best lineup yet.

 

No weak link at all on Sunday, and as for Saturday, Im not overly familiar with Talon, but after that its all great too. My question is when the hell am I going to eat??

 

I'll have to survive on 2 fat boy fry ups and a vat of beer.......hard life eh??!

I'll join you... I don't know what a "fat boy fry up" is but I can eat anything when accompanied by a vat of beer! ;)

Might be tricky going (can only make the Sunday but that's the day that counts right! ;) ), but gonna try, people off at work so grabbing a holiday is gonna be ultra tough, might rely on goodwill and try a shift swap but I've had to rely on it a few times already this year!

Hopefully, but it's looking tricky - need to book a couple of days off but someone on my shift is already on holiday so I'm relying on goodwill. I'll ask in a month or so when it's a little nearer the time.

Anyway I've just seen the tour poster (okay I had to split the band name a little)

Me being an American doofus I understand my opinion means slightly less than nothing. It seems the main ones people are talking about staying at are The Premier and the Days Inn, both Nottingham City Centre. That's from the folks at MR.com who have gone/are going again this year. The band is either staying at the Welbeck (sold out) or one the aforementioned two... not that it matters, but just an FYI if you want to know where the cool kids are hanging out... ;)

This is where we usually stay -

Not the cheapest, but its a great hotel with a marvellous breakfast option. Just out of city centre, so its very quiet at night. About a fiver in a cab each way. Probably pays to share if you can....twin double bedded rooms.

 

Free parking.

 

Cheers

Firefest Friday night has officially sold out due to unprecedented demand :)

 

Woo Hoo :)

Guess we picked a good year to get on the bill, seems like the buzz over this year's event is also unprecedented!

We got our tickets through yesterday and bearing in mind I ordered straight after the announcement they are still no 280 odd.

 

I can remember a few years back we ordered a few days after the announcement and the tickets were like Nos 15 & 16!! lol.

 

So yeah I'd say the interest this year is massive!!

 

Cheers

I'm sure it's mostly because of FarCry... or something... ;)

    • I just saw that POTF was number 1 for Jez. I'm actually surprised no one else besides me Jez thinks they're great. One of the best from Finland.
    • New song 'Dangerous Dawn'.

    • I'm looking forward to immersing myself into these lists over the weekend.  Thanks guys!
    • Here's a couple from the KILLER "Lust Boys" album "Tall Glasses and Short Skirts". I really love this album. Definitely a hidden gem. Pure Sleaze.       
    • Agree with Geoff, a very average album, a pass for me.
    • Yeah like the new one, 2 from 3 for me.
    • Gotta say, I really dig the heavier edge some of these tunes have.
    • 3 for 3. Will we have an early favorite for album of the year?
