    What do we think are the top five festivals in the UK & Ireland? I know Oxegen, Electric Picnic, Glastonbury etc get the most attendance (well, I assume), but what are your five best? Be they boutique, dance, trance, jazz, blue grass, metal, thrash pan-pipes, - whatever.

    You are too late, we have already patented all the top 5s ever: http://fastfude.org/topic.php?id=15155

    Yeah, Me[b:0d55a5811c]a[/b:0d55a5811c]nies, isn't it? Jumpers for goal posts, makes you think, boul, lalty, strawman arguements, etc etc etc... festivals?

    Just to clarify by the way. This wasn't intended to be a 'list-off'. I'm actually genuinely curious as to what festivals people go to. Any undiscovered brilliant festivals that have kept an underground profile, or underrated ones. Like the forfey festival, is it any good? What about the Isle of man one, or there's a few mighty european festivals I keep hearing bits and pieces about.

    I went to one day of Forfey two summers ago, and it was pretty good. It was the first time I saw Clone Quartet, and I remember enjoying that. There was some good chattage if I remember correctly, although it began a little awkwardly I think.

    Does it still happen?

    I quite like the Top 5/10 lists, especially if they're ridiculous, can lead to some cheap arguments with someone usually taking it too seriously. Better that than someone talking about how good some local band were the other night, and about 50 people following up by saying exactly the same thing. :shock:

    How has the sausage roll bap been neglected here? The finest melding of baked goods in history in my view. Apart from that, Bang Face Weekender's a cracker- John Frusciante's playing with Venetian Snares this time. The only probem is it's at the end of the month. EP's always in with a shout. Iceland Airwaves sounded good last year too, and since their banks shat themselves it should be cheap enough this year.

    That band the other night were shit and are entirely overrated.

    Right sun?

    I'd like to go to that festival at the end of The Wickerman were they burn Edward Woodward alive. Maybe it's more of a carnival, I'm not sure, well anyway it's free in so that's good.

    Thank you

    You're spot on
  17. avatar Deestroyer
    Hang on... Roysters, in a bap? Well excuse me your majesty, I don't know how things were done in Eton, but in my day it was bikers, meanies, or you were a fruit. Not my words...
    Anyway, has anyone heard anything on Stendthal (or however it's spelled). Is it back on this year?
  18. avatar Chi-Lite
    But sure even now you're ignoring the classic KP Wuster Sauce (Cause that's actually how they spelt it). That was the original. You were only on the bikers and or meanies if you had no taste buds.

    But then in the late 80's Roysta T-bone steak turned up, and those of us in the know never went back. I still get have it for luch to this day...well, saturday morning. Class hangover grub.

    Roysters are the most underrated of crisps, I've introduced many a man to them and they too have never looked back... the t-bone flavour..the crispy bubbles... oh man I'm off to get myself a bag!

    You've introduced a lot of men to T-bones? See, this is exactly what I was talking about... anyway... any other suggestions?
