Baselogic (Bloc) has entered voluntary administration, the little hope of getting a refund has gone.

So they get to keep the ticket sales money and not pay the acts?

RIP Bloc. Such a massive shame. Had a great thing at Minehead and really went and fucked it up. Feel for everyone who bought a ticket hope you do end up getting refunds. I was so close getting a ticket.

Festival24 had the same issues with over selling of tickets and people not getting in, there was no refund.

Got back from Garden Festival in Crotia last night. First time out there but friends have been going the last few years.
The festival's only 2500 people so a different vibe to most and quite intimate.
Location is amazing, right on the beach. One of the stages looks right out to sea.
The afterparties were all held in the same venue which was a big open air club, again really good. Boat parties were also great.
Highlights were 2020 Soundsystem live, Greg Wilson, Tiger and Woods, Eric Duncan, Eats Everything (never listened to him before really but played a couple of really good sets, also had a long chat with him, really nice guy).
Would definitely recommend it to anyone next year. Works out really cheap as well if you get flights for a decent price.

Yeah agree with this. Really good crowd as well.
Carl, think Hideout already has that problem (not sure about Outlook) but can't see Garden turning that way just yet.

Croatia is lovely @ 60three, but not sure how long it has left before all the chiefs start reaching and mess it up like Bloc

Well Outlook hasnt sold out as yet, people complaining about the lineup not being as last year, so hopefully will keep a lot of chiefs away.

Boat parties all sold out.

This will be my last year going to Croatia, unless I get a free hook up for a festival.

I'm 1000000% doing Garden/Electric Elephant next year. Some of my mates played Garden this year too, gutted I missed out on that.

No just Outlook, was looking at Suncebeat but very expensive in terms of hotels for what you get.
