Maybe, with what they say in the latest email about all the searches to get in (seems like a big upgrade on previous years & I now know why people bring young kids to the festival, all the contraband in the kid trolleys!), open the gates more than 1/2 hr before the first act?

It reads very unBluesfest, the friendly festival.

Not camping, so preparing for all day, temp changes, rain etc, would find it difficult not to take in a bag.

Current forecast says 27 during the day and 21 at night so I doubt you'll need to wear a singlet. :)

I stayed at a mates place nearby last night and it was mild evening.

I am catching up with some friends on site as we speak, and it not too soggy and it has been drying out nicely the last couple of hours.

If you stick to the main walkways there will no problem if it stays like this.

Safe journey everyone. Heading down early tomorrow.
Traffic from Brisbane to Gold Coast could be difficult all festival.

Anyway staying in Ballina for the duration and can't wait, as usual.

The way things are going I’m not sure I’ll even make it as I put the order in for a mobility scooter for Tuesday but it didn’t arrive so organised it for today & it still didn’t turn up.
No ones answering the phone so left a message on their mobile & an online form.
Wish me luck!


They got the cocaine, oxycontin, mushrooms, marijuana
Vodka, plastic pop-off, twist one off
Yesterday I smoked, today I don't
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Only help I could think of is hire a wheelchair & pusher but don’t expect someone to do that.

I tried calling but I’m thinking they all got together to ban scooters from bf (scooters don’t like the wet or mud)
When I asked bout the scooter they all asked is it for Bluesfest?
Got a firm no! from all & one was just outright rude so found a place just out of ballina (Alstonville) & they assured me they would do it but didn’t ask if it was for bf.

Left an online message & phone message so hope to hear back tomorrow.
Only other option is from a mob I’ve dealt with before but they weren’t keen but told me to ring back as I’ve dealt with them a few times ……seems his still getting the mud out of one I hired 2 years back.

Yeah right. So don't the Fest supply them at all? It's 2018! Yell out Coke, maybe the dogs might not like a pusher but happy to help. I can believe the mud in the tyres story but they need a little flexibility. Hope to see you there.

Mate I think that anyone that posts here will be keeping an eye out and will be ready to give you a push or shout you a drink if your stuck. Poor old Harvey had some health issues this year and can’t make it (not sure if it was his testicles or heart or basic will to live) we’ll be keeping the eyes peeled! Keep us posted on your wheelchair scooter status - give it a crack.

Just got back from the rails (drowning my sorrows)
Last time I got a wheelchair was way back with mate that lived in Byron & they had 1 left @ the local hospital if things don’t turn out with the scooter I may have to see if they can help out. … but still not keen on putting it on to others as I’ve already been looked after by waffles (that was a bloody shambles @ the Gold Coast airport) but then again a mate took me round narooma a couple of times & was impressed with my choice of tents & artists …told me after he was going to do it regardless but if it weren’t for me he would have missed some great music.
He & his other half have made a deal with me you choose the music we take & if we’re lucky get the good seats @ the disabled viewing areas - works out good for all of us.

keep in touch if you need a hand coke. luckily some tents have a run of good acts,so you might not have to move too much.
but you just gotta get there.
was going to check you yesterday after work but a major accident gridlocked traffic on ewingsdale road.
give us a call if you need help.

I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.

Thanks mate.
Looks like things have come good as they are on the way with the scooter right now.
Still not sure why they didn't turn up yesterday but I'm happy I'm getting it.
