Festival 23

Post by Spiby » Thu Jun 16, 2016 5:18 pm

A good friend of mine is helping to organise 'Festival 23' - a celebration of discordian counterculture, which I thought may be of interest to you good people:

Great to see AOS3's return going strong. Growing up they were a local band who killed it at festivals, great lads too.

I used to live in Sheffield, would be interested to know where this secret venue was, I can't seem to find much info in those links above. I remember DiY when they were first getting started, they used to put on some great parties and club nights. I had no idea Peter Woosh et al were still going!

Both names take me right back to fond if a bit fuzzy memories of my mispent youth ... getting too old to do all that good fun with any dignity really sucks :(

Will there be another festival 23 next year?

Unfortunately I didn't get to go myself (I'd already booked a holiday) but I've spoken to my friend who organised it and it was incredible; life-altering.

There won't be one next year - the plan is to have it again in 2018.

As for location, I will find out...
