A crack team of rioters cycled down to the Folk Festival yesterday [Friday] and even managed to cycle back home after many pints of cider without injury.
If you’ve been previously unaware of the Festival’s charms then here are some thoughts on it.
1) Yes, it isn’t cheap. $85 for a day pass. But on the other hand there’s a lot going on. There are a dizzying number of stages. Performances are starting all the time, and then there’s all the other activities and excitements. To say nothing of small groups simply coming together in open spaces and playing music all through the days and nights.
2) There are a lot of people wearing purple.
3) You may have no interest in morris dancing. But isn’t it nice to see people taking so much joy from such innocent fun?
4) It’s still going on out at EPIC for the rest of the long weekend. If you’ve got the time and the money but have never been I recommend it.
