Splendour in the grass? What grass? First year they complained about the rain, second year and the wind, and their excuse is back to the rain again.
PS it’s a floodplain in a high rainfall area! Where’s the value for money when you go out with 30,000 others and are corralled into a small area like pigs in mud.
I spent two days there and contrary to those with rose-coloured glasses (above) the mud was horrendous and almost as unsanitary and the toilets.
How do the authorities allow such conditions? There’s no excuse – Splendour claims to be skilled at festivals and then run a show like that!
The Amphitheatre had treacherous slopes with many falling over. Other slopes were also very bad.
Unlike those apologists above, I spare a thought for the local residents and wildlife too. I don’t want my enjoyment to come at the expense of local resident discomfort and bewildered wildlife (the site is next to a nature reserve).
A floodplain! What a laugh! Surely the region can still gain some economic benefits if the festivals were held in a more logical place.
I would like to go to future festivals in another place that makes sense, I don’t want to face those sort of conditions for that price, I’m there for the music and atmosphere and that was wrecked by the atrocious choice of location.
