So, for those that are interested....
It seems like this years Pics are lost and that the Memory Card is totally broken.
Instead, here are some pics from last year to help you all get a view of the Festival. To make them more like this year just imagine some RAIN!!!!
laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

When I'm at the Festival I work for WOMAD in their main Merchandising Stall. When an Artist brings in their own stock of CD's I'm responsible for booking their product into stock and making sure it gets entered onto our Computer System, displayed and sold!!!
At the end of the Festival I do the exact opposite! I return their stock and make sure they get paid for whatever has been sold! I also sort out WOMAD's own stock, about 600 titles of CD. Some people actually expect me to know every single title and exactly where they all are!!! I also work before and after the Festival for two of WOMAD's main CD suppliers and help set up their Stall (The smaller CD Stall!) and then help them pack up and do a Stock Check after the Festival!

This is the smaller CD Stall:-




This is the Main Merchandising Stall!!






These are the Flags that are all over the Site. There is a Crew that change them every night and so they are different colours every day!!!




The Red Arrows were told that I would be there and did a Fly-past especially for ME!!!! laugh.gif


This is looking out at the Crowd from backstage whilst Shane McGowan was singing 'Fairytale of New York'!!!


And lastly, this is me at 10.30 am on Sunday Morning!! Yes, I am awake in the morning!!!!!! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
This was the start of what ended up being a 15 hour shift!!!!


I hope you enjoy this little tour!!!

If you go HERE you'll be able to see some peoples vids from this years event!!!
I particularly recommend 'Schlomo and the Vocal Orchestra'!!! I had to keep reminding myself that there were no instruments on Stage!!!!!

Cheers Ivan!! Those are all hand printed in India! We sell them for 20 Sterling for the large ones or 10 for the smaller ones. (I don't think there's a pic of the small ones though!)
