High Voltage Festival
« on: December 03, 2009, 01:57:15 PM »
High Volage Festival, London Victoria Park July 24th & 25 2010.

I'm looking forward to hearing the band announcement for this festival, from what I've heard there's going to be 3 stages A Classic Rock stage, A Metal Hammer stage and a Prog stage.

ELP have been announced as one of the headliners:

There's a discussion on the facebook page where you can say who you want to see.
I've included Frost* in my list, of course  :)

Shouldn't there be a cloak-room near the Prog stage?

(Also, I'm making a mental note to keep well away from Pedro next time I have a pint of beer, for fear that he might wee in it).

Do we read into that that Frost* got an invite?
Bizarrely, for a gagging-for-it Frost*ie fan-boy like me, I am quite at peace with the notion of Frost* having their be-rainbow-toe-socked feet up for 2010, if only in terms of live appearances, thus paving the way for other new and interesting things.  :)

My first thought was 'wonder if we could tempt Jem into a Frost* appearance, but as he's said above, he want's to be a fan for this one. So instead how about a big forum meet up/picnic/general booze up???? Including the great man himself if he so chooses)

That sounds like a lovely idea and might stop my Loreley/High Voltage dilemma...
