I think bog will be the correct term tonight.
I think Saturdays choice of AC DC is a bit daft. Not everybody's cup of tea, in fact, very few I reckon. I might be wrong. Hope so

A cold dirty field inviting a bunch of ageing pot bellied wannabe Glasto's listening and pretending to enjoy a load of wannabe rock singers murdering already crap songs, while slurping on flat Bright? Thanks but I'll stick to my weekends in the Kings Head if you don't mind.

You show yourself to be the last part of your name. You have obviously never been to RITB. I think those that are going this year will be better of without your type.
I pity the clientele of the Kings Head if they have to share the place with you.

Its a shame that people are quick to criticise things even though they haven't tried them. Last year's RITB was a great weekend. Lots of friendly people of all ages from young kids upwards, with a variety of bands over the two days to please all tastes. Its not about paying just to see an ACDC tribute, its about a relaxing weekend, taking it easy and listening to some music. What's more, todays rain will be turning back to sun later. Still, there are limited tickets and they all sold last year, so I doubt anyone will miss lifestyle guru RFMA as he enjoys another all singing, all dancing, lock up your daughters weekend in the....Kings Head...woohoo (stifles laughter!)

Love the way Mr Forks immediately presumes that anyone drinking in the Kings Head would be a Southover member! God forbid that anyone other than Cliffe members should drink in the Gardeners!!
Not a fan of RITB but good luck Cliffe, another great bonfire fundraiser. Hope the Bonfire God shines down on you.

God forbid anyone not related to a Bonfire Society dare drink in any Lewes pubs. They're like US fraternitities, only more in-bred

Could you squeeze in The Boxtops - The Letter; Lovin' Spoonful - Summer in the City; and something by the Kinks?

Deep Purple... or was that all 70s?
I'd go for Lazy, Highway Star or Space Trucking.
Lazy especially though...

Rock in the bog was again fantstic this year. Great to see so many people there,Lots of young people. The rain on Friday eveing did not prevent Jellyhead from tearing up the stage with a terrific 2 hour show. Then saturday the sun shone all day, while we where treated to some great music, the night topped off by a enegetic set from AC/DC tribute Dirty/DC. Will be back next year for sure. This event goes from strength to strength.
Well done to all envolved in putting it on. "We salute you"

I have to say John Crampton was the highlight of the weekend, what a blues player, superb!

I think John is better than Seasick Steve.

Really, really good weekend. CBS should be proud of a varied and inclusive event- I'm not a member of any BFS but felt welcome anyway. John Crampton was awesome, and Fate the Juggler also played a great set. AC-DC tribute ain't my thing either, but lots of people obviously really enjoyed them and they made a massive effort for 2 hours. RFMA, your comment could apply to any festival really- just have to assume they aren't your cup of tea! I'll definitely be back next year.

Friday night was raining that hard that I thought the pub's roof was going to leak. It was lashing down but go on, tell me what a great night standing in a dark field was. haha lol haha. Oh and I did hear that if you are not an ale drinker, you could have Fosters and nothing else. Lovely!! haha

I think you will find everyone enjoyed both nights and a night in a field pouring down with rain would be preferable to sitting in The King's Head listening to uninformed witterings of an obviously bitter and twisted individual.
Cheers to Mockers and his crew for all their hard work.

RFMA**e there was a whole other bar for people who were not on the ale so whoever you heard that from clearly didn't go either!!
It was a fantastic weekend and the rain certainly didn't ruin it for all the people who were there and enjoying a great atmosphere.
Bring on next year!!!

So RFMA, as expected, you were wrong on all counts. What a fantastic, well organised weekend. Great music, proper stage and sound system, loads of people, young and old(er), well stocked and run bars with a variety of beers (and no, not just Harveys bright), fantastic weather after a bit of a wet start - but hey, everyone was enjoying themselves so were not bothered about a bit of rain.

Oh, and Rick P, I have got to say that whilst AC/DC might not be top of my list either, they actually put on a great show (fantastic guitarist), and drew a huge crowd, in fact the biggest at the event so far.

Well done and thanks to all those involved in putting the weekend on, and meanwhile it is worth noting that once again, despite all the slagging off they get, it takes the Bonfire societies to lay on a decent event in this town.

Still, there is always the Kings Head, eh RFMA...

A fantastic weekend! Not all the bands were my thing but they all entertained really well. Jellyhead on the Friday night were fantastic! No one even minded the pouring rain to watch them. Well done to all those who organised and helped out. Was great to see so many people from different bonfire societies there all supporting.
