Besides the issue of chairs and the reactive decision making on the flay why can't Bluesfest organisers reduce the sound bleed between the stages. This years bleed was worse than the previous years and is unfair to both the performers and the crowd. Didnt Peter say they had reduced the bleed or were investigating ways to reduce it well unless they spread out the tents more it wont happen without a radical rethink. I dont have a simple solution but it was extremely distracting and destroyed some sets

man i think you're standards are too high .. I was blown away with how well they managed to have so many massive shows going on with what i considered only minimal bleed.
I'm getting more distraction from the road traffic while i'm listening to my stereo than i was getting at the festival

Gotta agree massive effort when you consider how close the tents were..

turning jambayala to the east solved a lot,and the indigenous tent was not there next to crossroads. crossroads was open at the back and left side to allow better viewing from outside,but it just depended where you were .i was in crossroads grandstand most days and didnt find it too bad.

I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.

Actually didn't notice any bleed this year. Even needed to get passed the "beer garden" before you could hear Mojo well.

Juke Joint & APRA tent were a problem Thurs/Fri but I think they realised that turning the sound down instead of up, was the solution, and it got better as weekend went on.

Bleed was only really noticeable and annying during Gurrumul. Robert Randolph at Crossroads was loud compared to Gurrumuls quiet performance. Otherwise, not a real problem.

Bleed was horrible from Crossroads to the terraced area of of Mojo during Buffy and during Tim Robbins. Also it depended where you were sitting I was up near the top of tthe stand nearest the stage on crossroads and could hear the bleed.

There was sound bleed in some instances but overall I thought it was better than previous BFs I've attended. As andreworvis suggests, early on volume was too high at the small stages for the size of them - this was an issue for listening comfort alone, let alone sound bleed. Further improvement is always welcome, but congrats to the organisers on the improvement so far.
