Subject: RE: Vancouver Folk Festival Thoughts/Advice
Well, I ordered early bird passes for the three of us today....they're quite a bit of money but there you go. It's a holiday. It's far away. When will we ever do it again....At any rate, I think this festival will be worth the money just to be able to hear folk music and look at real live mountains at the same time. I almost always prefer small stages to the main stage, though. Partially because the quieter acoustic acts shine better on the smaller stages. They can get lost (if they indeed appear) on the big stage. Is there any problem with Dreaded Sound Bleed at the Vancouver Festival? There are several Ontario festivals which are starting to drive me mad due to D.S.B. (Should I mention their names? Hillside? Sudbury?) Fortunately there are festivals with next to no S.B. ....Millrace is a superb example. Rana...you're going to be a great resource of essential knowledge! Just write it all down for me and I'll read it on the plane... Thanks all! ~black walnut
