What's the go with the "no drum" rule in the camp site? Seems like overkill to me. I mean, without wanting to be antagonistic, we go to Bluesfest because we all love music (a decent jam being an integral part of that)... So, I guess my question is: Who on earth would have a problem with a bit of an after-hours bongo sesh!?

Ah well... seems a little regimented for a festival but, like someone said...takes all sorts, I suppose.

I assume Tyra Fraser is in fact "pulling our leg."

Drumming is ok by artists during the festival.





"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.

Hard to say what I dislike more: the distant sound of a djembe in a festival campsite in the wee hours of the night, or the idea of a rule explicitly banning it.

I guess I'd like to live in a world where hippies are self-aware and realise how bad banging on a drum actually sounds.

Was looking for xmas presents & found this aroma drum (yes you read that correctly) for the drummer who has everything.

It depends if they are in the next tent or not. The sounds of distant drums OK. Sounds of party next door not OK. Drum in the festival. I have been lucky at most festivals and not had neighbours that are a problem.

Maybe a curfew for the drum would be better.. But yeah some people might not realise drumming @ 3 in the morning is NOT COOL.

Wow, I hope you party poopers won't be there in 2011. If you don't like the noise on the camp site (which in my opinion is perfectly valid and only enhances the festival) - get accomodation elsewhere so you can lay your sweet head on a nice pillow, in fresh clean sheets to rest.
As for me (and obviously the people with the drums) it's all about 5 days of partying and good times. Plenty of time for rest the week after!!!!

Number 11 on the list of "Things Bogans Like" is Ruining Music Festivals. While the explanation does not specify late night bad drumming, I'm sure it infers it.

Here is the full list:

After spraying a little of this on the bongo's no one will want to touch them let alone play them. http://www.liquidass.com/

if some people dont like noise maybe they should have a designated area for people who wanna sit up late and strum out a few tunes and what not and a certain area for the people who r there to party during festival hours only

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outta you.

B. Dylan
