First we brought you the Drive To Video and now we have the Walk Nearby Picture as well as - due to some extra impressive oneupmanship by Nigel, the Exile Fest Sound Engineer - the Fly Over Picture.
(Click on the pictures to see big versions.)
Thanks Nigel, nice one.
"Found myself flying over the site earlier today and noted that the beer tent and marquee appear to be in some state of readiness, good..."
Nigel Christy (Sound Engineer)
"I was walking not flying for that one."
P.S.Here's a quick reminder that during the fes (by mobile) or afterwards on your desktop/laptop, you can get your own 2011 pictures showing up on the Exile Fest website by uploading them to your Flickr account and 'tagging' them with belpermusicfestival,belpermusicfestival2011.We'd love it if you did. xx
Full instructions and slideshows on the Photos page plus a quick walk through video below.
Enjoy. See you there.
We are headed up to supervise the main marquee arrival in a moment; build the stage; put up lighting etc etc. Last time we visited I made a quick video showing direction of travel from Matlock, to help people find the Exile site, or just to amuse, either way here it is.
Fast and furious, the video starts just after leaving Matlock on the A6, heading towards Darley Dale, and finishing at the Exile Fes site ... like real time street view.
Thanks to Fangio 'del Si for the exemplary driving.
(Of course not! It's speeded up to twice normal. Doh.)
The Exile Fes team had our penultimate meeting before the fes commences just a couple of days ago, and it's all looking good.
The beer tent is going up at the end of this week, obviously, getting the main priorities sorted hasn't been a problem; then a few days later the big marquee and fencing are going up.
The Fantastic Mr T (you know who you are) has done wonders with electrics and too many other bare essential amenities to mention, all us Exile guys can't thank him enough, but here goes - Thank You Mr T
We have had a small line-up change as, due to circumstances beyond their control Evangeline
who were due to appear on the Saturday afternoon have had to drop out.
We are very fortunate to be able to report however that the amazing (we are reliably assured) Salmagundi
will be taking over their slot.
The Running Order download over at the Info Packs page
has been altered to show this, so get an updated download now and Stage 2011
reflects this change.
Look forward to seeing you all there.(P.S. - Thanks to Russ for the use of his beer tent pic above. More pics on his Flickr although this is no way to travel for man or beast.Russ is the def guy to call if you need a diesel motorbike and trailer or Arduino fix though.)
