I spent my money on falls festival for gary clark jr so will have to give this a miss... hopefully harry manx announces some sideshows as he is a must see no matter how many times he tours as I love that 20 string guitar.

Happy New Year, everyone

If you weren't here, you've missed a great festival. One of the musical finds for me at least, was Vaudeville Smash, from Melbourne.

Mr N, I sometimes see you here cleverly disguised in a loud Hawaiian shirt. If you were here this year, I hope you caught one of their sets - http://www.vaudevillesmash.com

Another uncle rumple recommendation for a future Bluesfest lineup is Liam Gerner - http://liamgerner.com

i should have gone to Woodforde... instead i blew $435 on falls festival... due to the fact i am blind & the fact falls Byron bay is in a mountainous nightmare of a festival ground i fell over 3 times & had to leave within an hour due to injuries thanks to the holes & ditches i fell down... what a nightmare i will never attend falls or splendour at that venue, disappointing as i paid to see gary clark jr & leon bridges who i will not be seeing now.
happy new year to all.

You need a guide.Human or canine.

"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.

dear ranger, I had a human guide & I still fell over thanks to the pot holes, loose gravel on hills & general rough terrain which was a massive change from what is the usual flat ground which I find at most festival grounds.

I've been to both falls and splendour numerous times. There was some golden years when I went to falls from 2004-2009. I've never had much of a good time at splendour. And since the splendour operators are now involved in falls I will never go again. They only want your money. They are notorious for last minute changes ie car parking prices ticketing bungles. It's a shame.


Dear Skot,
Are you going to be a goose all your life?

Woodford is anything but a flat ground... far more hills and slopes than the Splendour/Falls site at Byron.

dear richo, thanks for the info re the woodford site as I had not been there before either so will keep that in mind for the 2016 festival which I will be considering attending. although the woodford site may have hills I doubt they would have as incompetent staff who couldn't give you any assistance like falls Byron, I doubt woodford would be like the falls byron site which did not have any disabled toilets & I doubt the woodford team would place the only platform for people in wheelchairs & other disabilities at the very top of a steep hill making it impossible for wheelchair punters to access. I may be wrong but I have a feeling the woodford site would be much more disability friendly & the overall atmosphere of the festival would be much more enjoyable then what I experienced at falls in Byron bay. as disappointed as I am from my experience I am still optimistic as I have bluesfest to look forward to which I know I will have no problems accessing once again for another year.

Woodford is totally disability friendly and you would have been provided with any assistance required. The pathways are all sealed and very disability friendly. I would guarantee as a disability specialist that no one would have let you fall at Woodford. Sorry your experience was marred at the other festival.
on on

hey spanner, I hope you had a great festive season & are having a great new years. thanks for the info re woodford it is pretty much what I assumed it would be so thanks for the info. was a shame re falls festival but hey some times I guess you have to have the experience to find out just how good or bad a festival venue is going to be & I can say I am never going back to the north Byron parklands for either falls or splendour & will stick to bluesfest & will be definitely considering woodford for next year.
