Thursday Entry

Every year we have had more and more requests for people to come on the Thursday to either set up their tents or just have a bit of extra time to land and get in to the festival vibe.  Last year we had so many people that it caused us a few extra logistical problems so we had to take one of 2 options; either not allow anyone or set up a Thursday ticket to allow for the additional planning and costs. We have decided on the latter. You can buy an advanced ticket from Brown paper tickets for

Sunday Assembly

Last year this was for some people the most amazing thing they did all weekend.  We had laughter, tears, joy, games and some great music...... if you'd love to celebr8 life then this is worth getting up for. Life, its incredible when you stop to think of it.  Your chance of being here is infinitesimally small, yet here you are in all your unique glory.  There isn't another you and the likelihood of their being another is even smaller than the chance of you being here at all. In the busyness of our lives it's easy to get caught

Crazy Golf

We like to keep mixing it up with Festival 8 so this year we bring you Crazy Golf.  Located around the site will be a number of crazy golf holes...... there should be a golf club and some balls at every hole.    The course is currently under construction by 'Bongo Dan' one of the founding members of Festival 8.  We are trying for an 8 hole course!   Go to the Info point for more info.
