Hi Max, successful ? I would ask define successful - lol . Yes it is successful in terms of the amount of bands that we have managed to bring - especially the reunions - bands that have never played the UK or maybe 20 years ago. We have a loyal and dedicated audience that is without doubt the best audience anywhere in the world - that comment is made frequently by bands that have played the show. Long days and nights of planning and execution , never having any finance - and basically no one else giving a flying f**k about a little show that specializes in melodic hard rock and AOR - Firefest has run for 10 years - longer than many and in those 10 years we have managed to do a show every year with what we have always felt are quality line up's. It's an ever decreasing circle of bands - 144 down - 20 to go (Sunday) - and to be honest no one wants to keep bringing back the same acts year after year - people would be bored - mind you I never hear people complain Journey /Foreigner etc are touring again this year - just goes with the territory I guess LOL Everyone needs a break - and after 11 years I think we deserve one - and maybe someone else will step up to the plate with another show - although I'm sure Andrew will agree that if they do they are completely NUTS!!!!!Andy and I have shared enough phone calls over the years to realize no one in their right mind would do this given the apathy involved - so if anyone wants to experience that Firefest vibe just once - then Oct 24-26 2014 is the ONLY chance of doing that- now back to the old pc and finalize Sunday - it WILL BE ONE HELL OF A PARTY !!!!!! kIERAN
