Mansfield is near Nottingham.

 

The rest of the line up is looking rather good although my lips are sealed at the moment.

 

:doh:

Why do you buggers get all these festivals? There's absolutely nothing out here.

It's about 200 miles away from me!

 

It's very close to Nottingham; shame you can't do this and Firefest in the same trip!

I keep forgetting the mentality out there. We wouldn't think twice about making the trek.

It would only be 180 miles each way for me and I suppose to anyone in a huge country like The U.S., Canada or Oz, it must seem pretty sad that we baulk at a 360-mile round trip to see a gig. To put it into context, traffic is usually awful somewhere en route, especially as I have to get to the other side of London, which is a nightmare, and travel costs are high.

 

For example:

  • To drive would take over 3 hours each way, assuming there was no traffic (which there probably would be!)
  • Diesel price is over £1.45 per litre (£6.60 per gallon) (petrol is around 5 pence per litre cheaper)
  • To go by train would take 4 hours each way
  • Rail fare for me would probably be over £50, which is on top of quite expensive gig tickets and accommodation costs

Maybe this all sounds like we should go and I would definitely do so if there were a few bands I really wanted to see, but not so much if there are 1 or 2 I'm only vaguely interested in.

Of the bands announced so far I'd only be really interested in 2 of them, and Ive seen one of those twice before.

 

Not really worth a 200 mile trip.

 

What I was implying was that if it was on my doorstep I might attend.

Saturday is tempting; the headliners could swing it. (But I bet I don't like them as I'm such an awkward bastard...)

Not so much the 'mentality' as 'the absolute arse of a journey' that it would be using public transport ... or even just driving ... I've driven in the US, and would think nothing of doing a long journey over there ... here in the UK, I'd think long and hard about driving anywhere more than 20 miles away! LOL!

Please don't LOL yourself. :D

 

But yeah, as I've said earlier, driving is a nightmare, especially here in the south east. Although we'd find a way if Willets, Filth and Gossow were all on the bill...

:whistle:

And Saturday's Headliners are - Pretty Maids

 

Hmm ... better than expected. If the fundage is there and I can persuade that strange Gibbo fella to come along, I quite fancy this.

Pretty Maids were excellent at Firefest!

Nah, has to be one or t'other.

 

...and if fundage is short, Oktoberfest takes priority! :drink:

With I Am I, Pretty Maids, Code of Silence and Vega all on the Saturday, this is now massively tempting.

 

Gibbo - train fare might be as little as £25 return, sure you can't be tempted...?
