In the meantime, last week saw the sad demise of Alt-Fest. Seemingly completely out of the blue, this festival of ginormous proportions, two years in the making, and certainly the biggest event we'd have ever performed at, entered its death throes last Tuesday, gave a brief wiggle on Wednesday, and finally succumbed on Friday. The final announcement from the organisers can be read here.
We're very disappointed - as mentioned, it would have been our biggest event, and the chance to see a whole range of other marvelous acts over the weekend too. We're even more disappointed for those of you who've forked out to attend - yes, you'll get your ticket fees back, but that doesn't really cover any advance train tickets you might have bought, or non-cancel-able hotel bookings, or camping kit you've forked out on, or new wellies you've just bought, not to mention the short space of time you've now got to make new plans. Hope you're able to come up with something equally splendid to do that weekend instead.
Of course, you may already be aware that the hosts of the Steampunk Stage, BB Blackdog and Co, are arranging a replacement event at The Workhouse, Llanfyllin, Wales. Unfortunately Crimson Clocks can't be at that event due to other commitments that couldn't be managed with the location change; but a large number of those who would have graced the steampunk stage will be. It should be a most excellent event - 3 days, a chance to put the camping kit to work, though hopefully not the wellies.
You can find out more about the replacement event here.
And if you're sad that you'll be missing Crimson Clocks - why not give us some suggestions as to where we should play next (ahem - polite ones only, please!). You can comment on this blog, or on our facebook page if you prefer (and if you've not given us a 'like' on there, here's a golden opportunity...)
Until next time.
