Previously at Belongil and Tyagarah Bluesfest had showers set up on semitrailers. These worked quite well, they were clean, efficient and even had wash basins and mirrors outside of the shower stalls. This year they went to a portaloo type set up which quickly backed up and over flowed. A couple of times I showered in my gumboots standing in a couple of inches of effluent. I hope they go back to more hygienic trailer set up next year.

Thanks for refreshing my memory on why I don't camp!

Camping is the only way to stay for Bluesfest. No queues, no busses, no missing the encore. If you knock up by Sunday like me, you can come and go as you please and have an easy day of it. Bluesfest don't often go backwards but the portaloo showers were a disaster. Hopefully they'll go back to the trailers. Other than that, camping is brilliant.

I thought the showers were warmer and the toilets cleaner in 2012, although I support the return of outdoor urinals in the concert area.

I wrote on one of these threads after the last Bluesfest that I thought the best showers were the ones that were a block of about 12/14 shower cubicles with the one channel down the middle for the water from the block of showers to flow away. These don't seem to clog up like the individual ones. They just seemed so much better. I really really do not like standing in water left over from the previous showeree. There was also a curtain in them so that you could pull this curtain across all you hanging stuff so that everything didn't get wet.
