Right : so here we go at long last ... It took me quite some time to sort out the mess after arriving back home on Monday evening + upload all the pix from the Wasted festival onto ZMRD server ... Now when all is more or less sorted out, I will do my best to provide some kind of very detailed report. ;D Btw. it will be coming in stages ...
Let me start first with this :
BBC 5-day weather forecast for Morecambe ... JfC ... the bastards shall be sued for this ! The only thing they perhaps got right was the sunrise and sunset ! ;D But on that later.
As for the general information : Program for this year Wasted was this / gigs I have attended are marked ... as for Thursday / my arrival day, well I just settled in the camp and was a tourist for the evening ... so for me the fest really started on Friday.
There was also acoustic stage at the Platform where I ended up in a rather disorganized way during breaks.
I haven't checked the Wasted Punk Fest history in real detail but anyway, the first Wasted festival was held 9 years ago in Blackpool. Morecambe appears to host the fest since 2000. It is a small seaside resort (as moby put it ... for elderly women to spend holiday ;D ...) at Morecambe bay, very close to Lake District.
I got there via Manchester ... from M. airport it is just easy to get there on train (though you have to change 2 - 3 times) ... but anyway, if you have to fly, Manchester airport is better option than any of the London airports.
To be cont.
