The festival develops

Day by day the festival starts to take shape.

Marquees rise from the ground, tipis are sited, decoration goes up, radios switch on, surprises crawl out from the woodwork, teams form and get briefed, mile after mile of gaffer and tiger tape get deployed, rubbish gets cleared, venues prepared, stages built, big tops raised, paperwork finalised, tickets and meal vouchers sorted, lanyards prepared, loos serviced, water mains charged, computers networked, keys organised, signs erected, hazards controlled, campsites prepared, wind damage repaired, caterers open contributors arrive, art is created…a festival forms.
