Following a loss of £3352 made this year, Lewes Live is unlikely to go ahead next year.

That's a real shame. It was a real step up on previous years and a real coup to secure Dreadzone.
I hope they persevere as if the weather had been kinder it would have been a great little festival....
If Glastonbury had given up after the first wet.....

It was so much better when it was "Rock In The Bog". Everyone knew what they were up against then and there was none of this pretentious cr@p.

It wouldn't of made a great deal of difference financially but why was LL put back 2 weeks so it clashed with the Borough weekend. I know a lot of Borough members who would've been at LL

Wonder how many £s of the loss were diesel costs in towing everyone out of the swamp

It's 'wouldn't have' Landporter not 'wouldn't of'. It's a contraction of 'wouldn't have'.

What will happen to the field? Will it just be left to go wild? Surely it is too wet for any other use

That's a very specific figure for the amount lost, are you one of the organisers?

It is a field. There are lots of fields around. They don't go wild just because a bunch of smelly campers fail to turn up 2 nights of the year.

They should've offered tickets per day and not for the whole thing. Turned into an expensive event!

And I’d have gone to Glastonbury if they just did evening tickets.

Luckily this forum is populated with a load of experts so no doubt the organisers will get all the info they need on how to make people go to an outdoor event during a monsoon and will run it again next year.
Thank the lord for the Lewes forum!

Tickle me Pink makes statements like this but is then too busy ‘tickling his pink’ to substantiate them.

So you have located two ‘festivals’ Online, one in Caister, one in Merseyside that are cheaper (or more expensive depending on what ticket you buy), and its a no brainer to go there rather than your local festival in Lewes? It’s true you would have to have no brain to go to either of them. Have you looked at the line ups?. A load of crappy pub bands and school kid wannabes.

You obviously haven't bothered to research them as neither are in Caister or Merseyside - I should know as I've been going to them both for several years! Excellent line-ups at both and not a tribute band in sight! Maybe Lewes Live should have done a bit of market research before setting their prices...

My apologies, the person telling me they had been to Cosmic Puffin said it was in Mersea, which I heard as Mersey. Still wasn’t very complimentary about it.
Meanwhile, Blind Cat is in Cabourne which is 4 minutes drive from Caistor.
