    We’ll be there unless the government tells us we have to stay home. Booked the usual Meridian accommodation as we left last year.

    Meridian was fully booked, last time I looked.

    If the actual beach festival is cancelled, maybe they will also get some cancellations, which would allow us to be there too? :rolleyes:

    I'm sure there'd be other bnb's that would meet Carole's "requirements"......;)
    There's always T3 Island at Lani's.......:rolleyes:

    You’d be surprised how little is available that weekend, in Old Bar itself, when the festival in on.

    We are not fixated on the Meridian, and def looking at all options at the moment. ;)

    Rang Lanis today but are still closed and only an answering machine saying to email any enquiries. Think I will email them and alert them that we havnt forgotten them and will be coming in numbers on the October weekend even if the festival is on or off. We can make it a true kombi festival and not have to compete with the Old Bar Beach Festival. Should clarify I love the festival but really go for the great company and kombi's.

    I just sent the following email to Lanis. I am confident they will be open however as evidenced by the replies above many of you still intend to go even if the Festival is unable to go ahead but the park is open. Spread the word :)
    "Hi All
    I hope you are well. Just thought I would let you know that the kombi community has not forgotten you. I have been rallying members of Kombiclub to come to Lanis on the October long weekend regardless of the Old Bar Beach Festival being on or not. Of course we would love the festival to go ahead as well but we plan to come en mass anyway. This is of course if you are open. We are very confident that you will be. Many of us have prepaid deposits on our favorite sites and intend to still come. We appreciate your great service and help to our group over the years and intend to continue to support Lanis.
    See you soon!"

    Can someone please confirm that the long weekend is the first weekend in October, ie Sat 3 to Mon 5? :rolleyes:

    (Having already forfeited a booking at Berry, would hate to book the wrong weekend at Old Bar, and have to forfeit that one too.... :( )

    I've stayed at the boogy woogy beach house, that's really great.
    Each room has a record player and all the vinyl you can poke a stick at. The balcony goes around to be above the stage there where there couches for chilling. Lastly, all the coffee you can drink at the cafe downstairs!
