Personally I think Mumford and Sons are getting a lot of undue flack here! They're a good band that I happen to like. I agree that they're not revolutionary, musically or lyrically and they're not what I would describe as a life changing band, but are we really going to be that stuffy and rigid about everything we listen to? Its somewhat antithetical to the here expressed desires for something that prods at the status quo to prescribe how one should do it. They're not One Direction for chrissakes!
Incidentally, those who have expressed worry about whats being advertised about the town and its provisions, this is from the festival website:
No vehicles will be allowed onto the campsite at Priory Fields, there is limited parking in town, but we‚??re encouraging those camping to come by train as the train station is a 10min walk from the campsite.
Overall, I feel this is a positive thing for the town. Who knows, the response its provoking might just shake up some of the stuffed shirts in Lewes, when one really didn't expect such!

Great stuff. It's about time we had something like this in Lewes. As a footnote hopefully we can get the Rook Inn full to overflowing with Harveys and open for the event . Kerching!

20,000 is that all? We have 30,000- 50,000 in the town on the 5th this is brilliant news for the town .Pubs hotels cafe's & shops must be rubbing there hands together so stop moaning and enjoy it this may never happen again in little old Lewes. P.S my kids love Mumford & sons i just hope they can get tickets

Wanting to attend but just wondering if there will be day tickets available because nothing has been mentioned apart from the 2 day ticket.

It's not without precedent either. The Lewes Guitar festival used to be held down there. Hayseed Dixie were the highlight the last time they did it.

This is more like it, people who are open to something that will no doubt be a positive thing for the town. Things like this are what I love about the town, the quirky and the different we don't want the norm in this town that's why it is good to have things like this. Stuffy shirtedness seems to be hereditary though seems some people dont want anything that they don't like therefore they will do everything they can to make it hard for people, who do in fact, like it. Good for the town, good for me, good for stuffy people as they wont be there. If you don't like Mumford and sons, to be hones,t I dont think anyone that does like them gives a rats colon.

20,000 @ £75 = ¬£1.5 mill for the weekend.
Nice little earner, Rodney.
(I hear the Kings Head will be doing tofuburgers for £10.)

Still plenty of tickets it seems. The card holder needs to be present with ID to use the tickets to enter. No reselling has been allowed exactly how all ticket sales should be.

Old Rocker, there are some left. Stevie's sitting on them until sparrowfart on Tuesday.

Does anyone know how I could get a food stand at the event? I'm the manger of the Friday food market and some of my stallholder were asking me. It mentions local producers on the website but doesn't seem to have any contact details.

You could try their manager Adam Voith: adam@billions.com
Or try someone at the council as I'm sure they own Convent Fields and would have to have approved this.

hey, my mum bought me my tickets, will I be ok getting in with them? It has her name on it...

Sara, It will use the name registered with you paypal account... I would have thought that was obvious you dolt.
Sean, you may have to contact music glue and have them change the name, check which name is on the ticket, if it isn't yours or someone who will be with you when you go in you will not be allowed to enter. You should have read this information before you brought the tickets but here it is:
"To enter this event you must present your e-ticket plus ID matching the name on the ticket at the point of entry. If you need to change the name for any reason please contact support@musicglue.com. The resale of tickets is not allowed"
and here is the info from Music Glue:
1) To enter this event you must present a printed copy of this e-ticket plus ID matching the name on the ticket at the point of entry. If you need to change the name for any reason please contact support@musicglue.com.
2) Check the bottom of the e-ticket(s) for the specific age restrictions of the venue.
3) If you sell this ticket via a reseller such as Seatwave, Viagogo, GetMeIn, TicketsNow, StubHub or Ebay, the ticket will be cancelled without refund. If you have purchased this ticket via any company or individual other than Music Glue, you will not gain entry to the event.

Does anyone know the link to get camping tickets? Can't find it anywhere! Cheers :-)

I'm pretty sure they've sold out. (That's what someone asking to camp in my garden told me anyway)

Yes, I saw that the camping had sold out. I think there are still tickets for the gig though.

Hi, we have 6 tickets for the festival but no camping, a bit undecided to be honest. Considering Spring Barn within walking distance, further afield Secret Camp Site Barcombe maybe 5 miles away, or possibly train back to Brighton, although does seem tight for time on the saturday evening with last train I think 20mins past midnight. Any suggestions including use back gardens for a fee gratefully received ! Feel free to email me. many thanks, Alex

I'd go to Spring Barn if I was you Aby, it's about a mile walk away, just don't fall in the drianage ditches across the fields en route....
