This is easy - get a roving wireless Cam, and broadcast interviews with chair occupants in the banned areas e.g. not behind mix desk. I think you will only need to do a few before people get the message.

Last 2 acts in main tents should be chair free. These are so popular, and generally people are up on their feet anyway. Of course the odd exception for the elderly and infirm could be granted.

We usually take a chair or 2 so there is a "home base" for the elderly and young in our party. But that is 2 chairs between a party of 9 and they are always occupied.

How about banning camper chairs but allowing the smaller 3 legged variety - that would reduce the space occupied by each chair, but allow those who need to rest their weary legs to do so.

The non-chair people should understand that even though generally the crowd at bf is good natured and considerate - large crowds of enthusiastic teens and twenty somethings jumping around (having fun) is scary to the elderly and young. A no-chair policy is a message to those people that they are no longer welcome at bluesfest, and I think without them the bf would become more like Big Day Out.

An alternative solution would be to avoid the really big name artists, and reduce the numbers of available tickets to match the facilities provided.

Whilst I enjoyed the likes of Robert Plant and Paul Simon, for me the magic of bluesfest is leaving having discovered a few artists I'd never heard before.
