Bands were fantastic. Drinks overpriced due to a token system. Unfortunately there was no atmosphere as there were not enough people there, very quiet.
With a bigger crowd it would have been a perfect night out.

Venue was dreadful with everybody slipping all over the place as the floor unsuitable . Bar queue was long , staff slow and miserable. £4 for a half pint glass of c**e was a disgrace

Bands were excellent. Venue a disgrace. Not enough bar staff and £4 for a pint of disgusting carlsberg a disgrace. More people queuing for a drink than watching Antarctica monkeys which was a shame as they were really good. 12 of us went but none of us would go back to the venue again. We would all see the bands again in another venue

I appreciate its the first year the Norbreck castle have held this event but really need to sort the bar situation out for next year drinks were over priced tasted watered down and not enough bar staff your queuing for ages just to get a drink and missing the bands think the lightning in the hall itself could do with toneing down a bit for a better atmosphere but early days hopefully will get better its about time they had something like this in Blackpool for all us indie fans 👍🏻🍋🍋🍋

Bands were excellent but no one in on Friday night. We stayed b and b and the place is very dirty and dated. Bar prices were expensive with no a lot of choice and queues on Saturday were an hour to get a drink.

It was terrible primarily down to venue organisers. Music and acts were ok.

The hotel is basic but adequate and not as bad as some of the reviews make out. The hotel as a venue was great for a mini festival. Issues with bar queues was the biggest negative and this I believe was down to poor planning. Hopefully it will be sorted for next year. As I hope will be the lack of Cider at the festival bar. Even had a draught pump but the organisers had chosen not to sell it. Available in the hotel bar though. We enjoyed the weekend so much we will book again for next year.

Very over priced.... had to buy beer tokens at 4 each. Then a 20/25 min que for the bar. Was a bar in lobby of hotel that was cheaper but not allowed to use with this venue. Just shows it was all about money.

Music acts were great on both nights, venue was super, nice and easy to find out where you had to go. Getting in no problem helpful staff who gave out wristbands. Buying drinks was a nightmare, had to queue up to get tokens then queue at the bar to get actual drinks. I only usually drink cider and there was not one single brand of cider on sale. Ended up drinking alco-pops!

I can understand why there would be a cashless bar and limited drinks but to not have a cider available was a very poor decision as it is one of the biggest selling alcoholic drinks across the UK. Both Me and my partner were not interested in any of the other drinks on offer and I heard other people ask for cider too. This was one of the main factors why we left early. It was also very cold inside the venue.

The event was excellent. Unfortunately the whole experience was ruined on Saturday by the lack of staff running the bar. While I didnt mind queuing for a drink. I spent more time doing that than listening to the music. It was such a shame,after all the organisers and musicians hard work, that all this years Revival will be remembered for is the terrible organisational skills of the venue.

An absolutely brilliant Weekend at an affordable price. Hotel isn't 5* but neither is my tent, so the VIP weekend was value for money. The events team clearly have worked so hard to get this weekend up and running & have considered what people need and want. Ive been particularly impressed by the customer service from the organisers, and more importantly, I felt safe all weekend so was able to let loose and rock n roll. I really hope this happens again next year. Keep up the good work guys 😊

Much prefered the Tower as a venue for location and in general . Liked the token idea for the bar however horrendous queues. Canned beers would work well. Clearly the events manager was taking all this in and receptive to feedback., which was very good as he was clearly attempting to address issues on the night. Didnt like the fairground stalls - unnecessary and i didnt see many engaging with them as after all we went to watch the bands.

Review of Revival Weekender 2019

The night was poorly ran tokens required to buy drinks; six staff members selling tokens (wasn't required no que) then two people serving the bar que for bar took over 45 minutes. Bands were brilliant unfortunately waiting for their sets to start was awful no music that was loud enough to hear or enjoy atmosphere really poor due to this and also again waiting around 1 hr for the next set.

First time attending event and last time attending.

Bands were great.
Disappointed with the need to buy beer tokens only to find the only beer on sale was watery Carlsberg at 4 a pint.
Limited bar staff meant standing in a queue for 20 minutes every time we needed a watery pint.
Kinda ruined the night. Shame

The bands on the night were very good , unfortunately the night was ruined by very high bar prices for soft drinks, they tried to charge me 4 for half a pint of c**e when a pint of lager was also 4 and got abuse for asking for a pint, also had to queue for 25 minutes to get to the front of the bar,. You had to buy tokens for the bar at 4 each but when I asked for my money back as I wasnt paying 4 for half of c**e the manager told me he would give me 20 back for my remaining 32 worth of tokens as it wasnt policy to give money back for tokens. This unfortunately spoilt the night which should have been a good one as the bands were very talented.
