Captain Sensible

I presume that the Rinbow Festival will be an annual event, but I don´t know of any details as yet.

fuertisparadise

okay, will you let us know the date its on as last year it was the 14th and 15th but it was actually the 15th as they spent half the day on he 14th standing about and when it reached round 5 or 6pm the final decided to finish it off and do the sound checks till around 10 in which i was dissapointed as i only got to see around an hour or 2 or the festival as i had to make the awful trip home
