Not very well organised/ran. Rude staff. Not helpful. Had to buy sheets of tokens to then get drinks with which is inconvenient

Venue too small for the amount of people
Hence no where to sit. I appreciate there will be no actual seats at festivals but the space was too small to sit down especially when this was on for 12 hours!!

We had the worst experience possible,
We arrived at the bowlers exhibition for the "festival" and it was nothing like it was advertised, I had bought the VIP tickets, and on arrival asked when we would be receiving our hour of unlimited rum punch and jerk chicken, no one had any idea what i was on about. We walked into the venue (which was a concrete floor, two tents and a ride) and asked again, once again no one knew. After asking 4 different people and walking around the venue it became very clear that it was very unorganised.
After 20 minutes of being at the venue standing around waiting for answers we were told that the organiser hadn't told anyone that there was any unlimited jerk chicken or rum punch that i have already paid for - there was no line up announced for the Sunday and they were unsure if anyone was even going to play - the whole event was falsely advertised.
After being there for 45 minutes with still no answers, no music being announced, drugs absolutely everywhere, despite a search at the entrance, and nowhere to sit down it became very clear that we weren't going to get what we had paid for.
To top the experience off out of nowhere two people starting shouting abuse at each other right in front of us and were clearly off their face on drugs.
We felt unsafe, angry and ripped off. We ended up leaving the venue shortly after as we were told by someone actually working there that it was only going to get worse as the day goes on!
I will be asking for a full refund as we feel the event was completely falsely advertised and we didn't receive any of the things that we had paid, i left feeling completely disappointed.
