Strawberry Fields 2013 Press Accreditation Meeting
Strawberry Fields 2013
Lenses cleaned, batteries charging, speedlights packed, triggers tested and a steady supply of Monster energy drink is on tap. It can only mean one thing, I’m off to the Strawberry Fields 2013 Festival. But prior to the 9th August festival starting, there was a much more somber affair which in an odd way I was looking forward to – the press orientation meeting.
I had a arranged to meet a friend there prior to the 6pm start and left Leicester with plenty of time to spare due to the rush hour traffic, i got to Strawberry with time to spare and had 30 minutes to have a walk around prior to the press meeting.
The set up this year looks really good and as with all major festivals it is being managed better than a military operation, with stage, sound and general crews working on their assigned sections with military precision.
The site itself is smaller this year than on previous years, but I expect this idea was thought out carefully and there is still plenty to see and do including various stages, eatery’s, bars and a funfair.
There are loads of stages to keep everyone happy including the Strawberry Jam Stage, The Big Top, The Set Stage, The Boat Stage and obviously the Main Stage.
As you can see from the below map, the event has been excellently planned down to the last food van, kids play area and toilet.
There are so many acts playing this year that I am not going to name them all, but with artists like Jaguar Skills, The Enemy, The View, Typer Mae, The Cuban Brothers, Just James and The Vacations you know that is going to be one of the 2013 water cooler festivals.
I have heard all week that the SFF organizers will be laying on extra buses from St Margagrets bus station and I had this confirmed to me today by the festival organisesr, so if you haven’t got a ticket then what are you waiting for? get on line, get your ticket and get your bum there.
You can buy Tickets from The main Strawberry Fields Website HERE
Well that’s it from me from me for today – I will try and get some SSF photos up shortly and a report of some description if i get a chance, but I hope this has given you some idea as to how good this years Strawberry Fields event will be.
