Alt-Fest 2014

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

problem is that he/TSOM made exception of policy not-goth-related-events, and yes it's true there is no logical reason why he/them chose one and turn down another (at least not that we/i know that), so point taken. :kiss:

Schade. Looks like just another weird sin ... but, if it's so, it's just so, and then it's right for if they could have they surely had ... :wink: ...

Tempted also, but I'm not quite sure on this camping malarkey...so it's gonna cost me a small fortune...

1. Hire a VW Camper
2. Find a nice person to split the cost ;)

I was cynical about whether this festival would get off the ground but the line-up looks amazing : Nephs, KJ, Manson, Numan, Arch Enemy, The Cult and Hooky on the main stage, ASF, Violets and Xymox on the Goff stage, My Ruin and Malefice on the metal stage, Front 242 on the Industrial stage and even a Steampunk area to keep the dressing-up crew away from the music fans... :notworthy: :notworthy:

I think they've been quite cunning in that they appear to be the first 2014 festival where we know the line up already.
& although there is some carp playing, it's still a pretty impressive showing.
Just hope the organisation matches the preparation.
Cheers.

Just in case you've not been keeping up, Peter Murphy was this week announced as Goth Stage headliner for the Friday, playing 50% Bauhaus songs. He's therefore on at the same time as F242 and VNV Nation, but on that first night you can enjoy KJ and the Nephs on the main stage then head to see PM to close the night. This has got to be one of the best UK festival line ups ever !

Is it just me or does this look rather enticing? I like the sound of dance areas in the woods, not to mention at least 5 of the bands penned in. So much cheaper than Sonisphere too. Hmmmm.....
