Re: [HurdyGurdyForum] Re: Tickets for ChÃ¢teau d'Ars
- Last time I was there, two years ago, the camping field was plagued by 'em, however they got in, which is why we slept elsewhere. I'm glad that they've been kept out since.Mark.

Likewise, we went into the campervan field (no van, just wanted to
keep car next to the tent) and where we were, it was very quiet. But
then again, we weren't next to Bridget and the Kamelåså crew :-).

But as you can't go to the camping fields without having the appropriate "bracelet", not sure how they would get in there as there are security guards to check this.

Check out the open mic. stage and the other small stages as well- some of the best performers that I've seen at St. Chartier/Chateau d'Ars have been on these. One of the things that I like about this festival is that (unlike so many UK folk festivals!) it's not "celebrity-orientated-" audiences go there to see the whole event regardless of who's on, not just their favourite band. This leads to a rich diversity in programming- you'll find performers of whom you've never heard and are likely to come across some undiscovered gems amongst them.

These used to be the plague of this event when it was held down the road at St. Chartier, where they would accumulate in the free area of the festival site and generally annoy everyone. Now that admission to all of the festival is by ticket only, they've been kept out of the main site, but they still invade the camping area. If you're in a camper van do what we do- there are lots of quiet little side roads within a few miles of the site where you can park up for the night and have a good night's sleep.

Since I'm guessing that quite a few of you on this list have some experience with the festival, perhaps you can advise me: do I need to purchase tickets in advance? Or is it a safe bet to assume that I will be able to get them on the day the festival starts?
