So what do we think was done well at this years GM and what do they need to try harder at?
The site was kept really clean - The Litter pickers did a great job
Main Stages went on later than many other festivals
The people! So many nice people
The Mountain stage and whole immediate area was beautiful. The extra stairs and walkways etc were good especially if it had been muddy (So glad the screens are back after they went missing two years ago)
Lots of matting, rubber flooring, straw and woodchips all around the site
The stewards (Im biased as I was one but I thought they were a great team)
MUST TRY HARDER
Too many queues at the Loos
More dirty edgy guitar music (Very personal I know!!... and thank you for the Fat White Family)
Comedy lineup improving but still not very strong
Programs running out and the new A4 format. It wont fit in my bag. The small A5 ones were much easier to carry around.
This was my 5th festival this year and I missed GM last year. Coming to it this year made me realise what a special festival it is.
