    the scene is pretty small nowadays :cry: most aussie skins seem to be into the Oi music, ill be catching those guys in brizzy though for sure :D

    Blues festival is an awsome event indeed but sadly i havn't got the coin this time around.

    As far as I can see the only artist I'd really want to see is Sonny Landreth.
    Great slide player.
    Totally hypothetical, since I can't go anyway:(

    Got my tickets back in November before they even gave out the line up !!! Got the Fri-Sun ticket. Hope Martha will be ready for the experience !!

    Saw CW Stoneking and Ash Grunwald in Brissie, they were excellent. Seen JBT and Xavier Rudd in London, so will be good to see them on their own soil. And all the other bands that I cant remember/dont know

    Hi, I booked before the line up too. I got ticket for me and dear friend for Friday including a night camp. We will be heading down on thursday night after work and will be camping at suffolk that night then down to the blues fest. I'm looking forward to Michael Franti and the Blind Boys from Alabama. Got2 love that Gospel when singing with ben harper. I am new to the KC and have not met anyone yet, but if you see our green white camper with the Murry art on the window curtains, feel free to come and say hi pls.

    Hi Judy, Thanks! would be a pleasure to meet you. I won't probably get there till around 8.30pm coz I'm coming after work from Briz, would that be a 2 late for you? You are welcome to send me pm.

    Cheers Connie

    Geez, that is a good lineup!!! Mmmm, Spearhead and several other good acts are scheduled to play on the Thursday, Bonny Hills is just 6 hours away (for the Easter meet).... almost tempting... if it wasn't for the extra expense and distance (and that I'd miss the konvoy north) I'd probably think seriously about it....

    Have fun, it looks like it should be a great weekend! :)

    I'd love to go just for my secret boyfriend, Michael Franti (and Spearhead) alone! but I can't, cos the we'll be down at Bonnie Hills too.

    We took our 3 kids for the full 5 days 4 years ago and it was fantastic. The kids just loved it, and our middle one (who's now 8) asked if we could go again one day, so it will definitely happen. Maybe next year.

    Enjoy it. :)
