Great festival, good size, not too busy and calm atmosphere!
This is a music festival sponsored by John Lewis - which says it all, take what you want from that. It certainly appeals to a certain age group, Travis were doing their album 'The Man Who' in full, other acts included Kate Tempest, Steve Mason and Metronomy. It was very much right up our street. Access was pretty good too!
Transport & Parking
We walked her from Greenwich DLR, about a 20 mins walk managed to walk the whole perimeter before getting to the entrance. Walk back to Lewisham which was about a 10 minute walk and got a taxi to Vauxhall.
The access was pretty good. Getting a carer was pretty straightforward, we bought a adult ticket and then the festival added on a carer ticket to our order via SEETickets.com. The queue in was not long and we basically got straight in. I did not use or enquire about the disabled platform, but it had two accessible loos, was pretty high and not too far away from the stage. I could not see any seats though. The site itself was not huge and everywhere was pretty much accessible. The bar was well organised and the selection of beers (Meantime Brewery) was tasty, albeit £6 a pint, ouch, lower tables layout. The selection of food stalls was good, not sure about accessible as some had steps up and where in the typical high food vans. The atmosphere was really relaxed and there wasn't any people roaming around that had too much to drink. Plenty of children though!
Toilets where ok, clean and had hand sanitizer in the cubicles (not in the urinals). There were several accessible loos dotted around the site.
Seemed friendly and happy to be there as there was little trouble.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
We did not camp, it is not a camping festival and only went for one day as we didn't fancy the Libertines the next day, who were headlining. I'ld go back if the lineup was good. For £53 for a ticket, I thought it was decent value.
