Only if I play

What's Hot

I get asked if I go to festivals (Reading, Download, Glasto, etc) all the time whenever people find out I've played/playing in a band, my response is always that I will only go to one if I play. Does anyone have this kind of motto? It'll probably never happen but will be super-sweet if I do ever play. Even if its some unsigned shitty tent or something. I've stuck by this and to date have never been cos I won't get to play!

  • Do you like food? I’ve been to Grill Stock a few  times. Only 2 stages and no camping but got to see Hayseed Dixie, Goldie Lookin Chain, and eat some great ribs and burgers.

    You're missing out is all I can say. Just go and take it in and you may even get asked whilst your there.

    Last festival I went to was Glasto 1996. We jumped the fence, as we did in 95 and 94. Was worth every penny.

    That’s like never going to gigs if you’re not playing. 

    You're definitely missing out.

    Sounds like the kind of system to bring in AFTER you start playing a lot of festivals, no?

    And having played and attended plenty of them myself, I can tell you it's a lot easier to enjoy what's on offer when you're not performing yourself. Finding a place to safely store your gear for the weekend away from rain, mud and crazies being just one of the challenges. Most often I'll ship out shortly after playing because it's just too much hassle to stick around.

    Time to give up that motto.

    The good thing about playing the festivals is A : you get in for free and B: as a muso it's a lot easier to smuggle your alcohol in. 
    This year at Victorious Festival I smuggled my alcohol in with my guitar and amp, did the gig and then thought I'll pack the gear back in the car,  and so stupidly smuggled my alcohol back out the festival and had to get it back in again .... luckily security were fooled by the jumper in my rucksack which was covering the stash

    I'm the opposite. The only gigs I get to go to these days are the ones that I'm playing (I'm talking about pub gigs here!). Sometimes I get sick of playing gigs and just want to watch a band play while enjoying a pint. Unfortunately it's too hard to find a good live rock band where I live.
