Man, that looks weird! 

http://www.plymouthvolksfest.co.uk/whats-on-volksfest.html

there will be a silent disco until 3am. - Yeah, right.  What the fcuk is that? Dancing with your iPod?

Early Bird tickets seem reasonable at just under £35 for a day pass

See what other gigs come up before I consider this. Most likely miss out on Early Bird though. Need to spread the very thin cash load around. Saving my pennies for my 2014 Rats Fest .

How's this for luck: I've won hire of a vintage VW camper and I live in Devon (hire agreement says the van must remain in the South West). Bad news is, the earliest I can pick it up is Tuesday!

Will do my best to remember it. Anyone else going? Apparently the rain will ease and as of yesterday it's not muddy at all, in case you're wondering about brollies and wellies etc.

Same suit but with a t-shirt underneath this time  smile

Set was, as far as I recall, entry to The Boomtown Rats and countdown, as per 2013, then

Eva Braun

Clockwork

Neon Heart

Do You in

Intro to 'the suit'

Someone's Looking at you

Joey

She's So Modern

Mondays

Close as you'll ever be

Mary

No 1

Rat Trap

Crowd well up for it by the second half of set, and for some reason last track went down a storm. Maybe 1500 watching? Guessing festival was 3000 ish but really no idea...

Roll on Wiltshire....
