Review of Summer Gathering Festival 2016

Overall rating: 4

Normally i really enjoy Summer Gathering but on this occasion the setting was amazing but the organisation on the day was very poor as there was no information about event or artist set times available before the event. And as for the silence rave situation OMDZ sort it out you go to a festival to listen to quality music all night but actually your forced to cut your night short because the event organisers could not be *****d to secure a late event licence and NO im not paying again to continue my night and be listen through headphones. WTF JOKERS it was bad enough the year before but at least the loud music finish at 4am. Im absolutely gutted that this years Summer Gathering was a let down and i will be investing next years funds into a different event. Sorry but its to avoid more disappointment.

Best time ever!
Lovely people and quality music. Tents were good and forest stages were incredible
Only downside was music was cut off to silent disco at half 11 at night! :(

Review of Summer Gathering Festival 2016

The set up in the woods was amazeballs. Not too sure about the mix of music genres but on the whole the atmosphere was electric.

The venue was good expected more for what it was.. Funfair- WHAT FAIR!! There was 1 ride!!? The tokens you could use instead cash were advertised for food, drinks and merchandise but we were only able to buy drinks.. we were told that straighteners and charger points were there for use.. they were nowhere near where we'd need them and were not told they were charged.. would have been nice to be told. The fact that the mc's and dj's stopped at 11PM was rediculous! The only option we had was the silent party in the woods with headphones... and you had to pay for the headphones?! We didnt so we had nothing else to do after 11PM. The event was falsely advertised as 4am finish!!? We paid VIP and got the same treatment as standard campers they also had showers and had access to our 'VIP bar' and the 'secret forest' locations
Also unsure why happy hardcore was mixed with Drum and Bass, Summer Gathering is based on drum and bass but yet there was more option for happy hardcore. 3 tents 1 of which was DnB, 3 'secret forests' 1 of which was DnB... we spent most of the weekend confused about the whole venue... apart from that the music, MCs and DJs were on point.. just a shame it was so minimal and cut short
