Willow Fest 2012 - Peterborough / Crash Doubt Festival 2012 - Lincoln
Usually after each event we go and do you’ll get a full write up afterwards from myself telling stories of awesome partying and random shenanigans.
Neither Willow or Crash Doubt were able to bring much memorable excitement to the table and will probably be remembered for samey bands [Crash Doubt] and stealing kids [Willow]
To sum things up, the best part of Crash Doubt Fest for us was going to Birmingham’s UPRAWR on the Saturday night, but then UPRAWR never fails to be awesome fun, the festival lacked much of an atmosphere and the huge majority of bands were very much the same as eachother, i found it hard to distinguish between what i was listening to going from room to room. Despite, the bands were doing what they love and no one can fault that, i was still able to take enjoyment from a majority of what i was able to catch. The highlight of Crash Doubt for me, and by far the best bands on the bill in my opinion were Mallory Knox and Hildamay. I think going forward Crash Doubt should branch out into an array of different genres and bring something to the table that far more people can enjoy. Everyone we met and that came to the stall were still awesome as usual though, and it was a pleasure meeting you all!
Willow Fest. Wow. That weekend was fucking hot, all of us working the stall that weekend got burnt in some form, i know that Big Dealer Kenny B is still suffering from an ‘invisi-vest’ from that weekend as well as a serious case of leprosy [peeling skin]
Willow was a strange one, it wasnt extremely busy where we pitched the tent, yet the nice weather and familiar faces of Peterborough made the weekend enjoyable. It was also a pleasure to play my hometown with my band ‘We Are Fiction’ to a packed out tent of a variety of different people, ranging from our usual family of fans to a number of fresh faces seemingly new to WAF.
However, and this is where the picture comes in. We did manage to see just how thick, thoughtless and down right disrespectful some people can be. A child, [emphasis on the child part as i cant see any adult even thinking about doing something so ridiculous] managed to successfully steal a vest from our rail. Something we are not proud of as obviously we werent being as on the ball as we should of.
Luckily, a very decent dude, who i shall not name as requested by himself, made us aware that the theft had taken place based on the fact that the idiot in question posted it out on his facebook profile! One screenshot later and it didnt take us long to recognise the fella as a lad we’d seen about anyway. We were then informed he was wearing said vest the next day at the festival! What a twat. Needless to say, we found him, he shat himself, he paid for it, he learnt his lesson.
It goes without saying. Dont steal, especially from an independent clothing brand that is not only set out to clothe you in some awesome threads, but we’re also set out to help out and promote the music scene we’re apart of. Bringing new bands and artists to your attention, promoting events and partying with you all over the country.
It also goes without saying that if you do steal from us, we’ll most likely find out one way or another, as will your mates, before you know it, people will just think you’re an untrustworthy cunt.
