Thread Name: Sidmouth Folk Festival 2014
Subject: RE: Sidmouth Folk Festival 2014
Good point Derek my original comment was only based on the fringe events as I didnt attend any concerts. The only problem is you take the fringe away and its half a festival. Imagine no music coming out of the pubs or along the sea front. I did notice a couple times the week has become so popular in some pubs there was no room for muscians which was a bit strange. I still say a long weekend would have more punch though. People turned up to Dartmoor this year looking exhausted. There is a lot of moaning locally going on now about folkies being sick everywere etcetc. I try and point out they are getting folkies confused with the homeless who make there way from all round devon (who can blame them free entertainment) and their own kids and grandkids who I saw being sick all week.
