It might be nice to actually include the location in the post considering it's in Kent (the UK).

Yeah, I got my hopes up, went to the link and had to poke around for a bit before I could actually figure out where it was happening. That = waste of time for those of us waaaay too far to travel there. Just sayin'...

PS: I see that you edited the OP - thank you :) and I'm sure the others who read this thread will thank you as well. ;)

Yeah man, I feel ya. Europe does definitely offer some of the best festivals/tours. I guess because bands don't get over there too much, so when they do, they make it worth while.

In regards to festivals I think it's just because so many of our festivals are so big, notorious and a big part of music history. The number of bands wanting to play them let alone being asked and fitting it into schedules is major.

I love our festivals so much, makes me proud everytime I'm at one and part of a crowd.

Yeah I saw him live at Isle of Wight Festival a couple of years back, not really my thing but it was such a perfect chillout soundtrack whilst sat on the grass with ciders and mates.
