Subject: RE: CLIFFTOP '04 , INFORMATION PLEASE!
The quitest bits of the campsite tend to be in the same field as the competition stage, because people who want to jam for the whole festival don't camp near the P.A. system. When the competitions/concerts end, peace descends on this part. The rest of the campsite is pretty much a sleep-free zone until a long way after midnight. I just loved lying in my tent listening to some great music drifting through the trees. Hotels are (a)miles away (b)mostly booked up. There are toilets around the site, and a shower block behind the main cabin - was a buck a throw in 2002. There's a washeteria under the cabin, round the back with a few machines/driers. Meals are served in the cabin during the official festival period, and snacks can be bought from various wagons. You can also buy instruments and recordings from some really good knowledgeable dealers.
It's a great week - enjoy it!
