There has been quite a lot of comment recently about how people are finally getting fed up with the same names appearing and are planning not to go in 2017. There is of course a lot of people who want more of the same.
Next year’s line-up seems to reflect that the organiser has certainly responded to the cry for changes.
Thankfully the ‘Jazz’ idea seems to have died a very welcome death. However, the ‘Blues ‘ concept seems to have really taken over. Much of the Blues Stage is occupied by American harmonica players (plus our own Paul Jones), and the Rock Stage seems pretty heavy on the Blues too.
So a definite change in outlook it seems.
