I'd like to see:
- Better beer choices
- Better policing of chair use
- improved drainage it only rained about 1 hour over 5 days and outside mojo was a swamp.
- A security company that actually provides security for the punters as well as the owners.
- Oh yeah and "Page and Plant"

I know Tom doesn't travel much anymore but Tom Waites would be my dream act.
Would love to see Zappa plays Zappa again this time with Steve Vai.
Also Brian Setza.

Next year I would like to see better security in the camping area. It is not fair that the general public ( teenagers ) without tickets can just wander into the camping areas. It was the first year I didnt have things stolen from my camp site ( while camping on site), so that was good, but why not have the area properly fenced with security checking camping bands. So many people just pulled up in their cars on Friday and said to the person in the marshall tent they were going to get thier camping tickets and didnt. just slept in their cars. The poor guys at the Marshall tents werent given enough info, when we pulled up at 3 days camping in thursday they asked us what lot number we were given and had to wait til they could contact someone b4 we could start setting up.

I realise this is a massive operation and you guys are doing well, just thought I would point out what could be better. Designated chair area too, so I can safely sit with my kids and not get abused.

clear enforced chair policy - chairs are fine for people who need them; but impound chairs that are vacant/just being used to stake out territory/ pose a trip hazard in the dark

There was a band that played a few years ago... back at Red Devil... The Sunshiners I think they were called... they did heaps of reggae covers of popular songs. The whole tent was dancing. Bring 'em back! :D

and Tijuana Cartel

and may as well invite BB and the Blues Shacks back for a 2nd year I reckon. ;)
