Review of Yorfest

Overall rating: 4.5 Verified review

I enjoyed our day at Yorfest 2017 although I think the organisers are selling themselves short. There was no signage to indicate the event was happening and even when we were getting dropped off outside the nearest road gate ~ 50 metres to entrance tent we were beginning to think we had the wrong day.
Talking to one of the food sellers the festival is quite young and is growing year by year. I think it would benefit from better advertising and a more cohesive group of bands on the main stage, and care to be taken that the other stages are not conflicting with the sound from the main one.
The music overall was good however other than the guy from Cast and Dreadzone the main stage line up was far less energetic than the local bands on the smaller stages who were generally fantastic, and provided lots of opportunities to dance. For us at least it felt like the Headliners were on at tea time with a sudden drop in energy to guy-with-a-guitar Badly Drawn Boy.
Comedy tent was an interesting addition that I haven't seen before and we enjoyed a the couple of performers that we saw- however I think it should have been clearer that Jason Manford was not performing- I thought he was and that that was why the shows were being charged separately. I think it would have felt better if the comedy was included rather than having a bizarre you can sit and you can't policy at the tent.
Facilities on site were almost perfect- a hand sanitiser on the exit of the male urinal compound would have been welcome.
