A space for conversations in a time of global disruption
I am keen to attend this festival for the first time. However I need to know how crowded, noisy and late the festival gets. I have a sudden death syndrome which means that I have to avoid crowds, noise and getting stressed and tired as these can all cause a cardiac arrest. (I know - it sucks!).
The eco lodge has told us that they have rooms available and I wondered whether this would be quiet enough to act as a retreat if/when it starts to get too much. I also need to know whether its possible to get a good night's sleep there while the festival is on. I know all of this makes me sound like an old grouchy diva and believe me I wish it were otherwise!!
Thanks for any advice
Hello Karen :-)
I'm sorry I can't be of any help either as I've never attended one. I know there was a mini festival in Scotland at the weekend (I couldn't manage it). Maybe someone who was there could give you some information of the set up and access to adapted accommodation.
From my experience of last years festival I could say that it didn't get too crowded - its in a large woodland space with many paths and areas to sit. There was a main tent which housed talks during the day and then singing/drinking in the evening; I believe this year to increase the intimacy of the event they are doing acoustic only and no PA system to amplify, but I'd check on this. As for lateness the camping area is quite far away from the main event area and through more woodland, so I couldn't hear much at all when I got into my sleeping bag around 2am. All in all no problem sleeping, quiet and a very very chilled festival compared to the commercial hideousness that is Glastonbury/Leeds/Reading. I came back feeling quite the opposite of stressed and tired, more energised!
