PLANS ARE afoot to ensure that this year's summer festivals don't go off like 1998's damp squibs.
A safe bet for success is the 10-day festival to be held in Carlyon Bay, Cornwall (6-15 August), to mark the first total eclipse of the sun in this country since 1927.
The Phoenix Festival will rise from the ashes after last year's cancellation, scheduled for 15-18 July at Long Marston, Stratford-Upon-Avon. The Mean Fiddler organisation has plans to make the Reading Festival a two-site event, running the same weekend in Leeds and Reading. Could there be a problem with the Leeds site also being used for the V99 Festival, only the week before?Reuse content
