Well, I meant those little programs that fit in your money purse, nothing really fancy.

Urgh, okay, that is really a rip-off then!  :pouting-face

Not true. It is free with some; depending on the festival or program size (sometimes it's more like a "book") it can cost.
(Just like some bands do sell "tour program" books at their shows.)

Well, I meant those little programs that fit in your money purse, nothing really fancy. I didn't mean a book program or a program such as the one The Cure was selling in the European 2016 Tour - which I was happy to pay 10 EUR for.

You're right with your criticism of the money-grabbing nature of many festivals these days.  :1f62a:
Which is why I don't go to many of 'em!

£ 5 for the festival program (which is normally free in any other festival)

My impression is that he couldn't say "no" to the whole Meltdown thing

Of course he was honoured to be offered this opportunity. And then he realised that he'd agreed to an "only show" deal with BST, which was unfortunate. So he thought up the "Cureation" thing to avoid any clashes... however, in my opinion, he really could've done something different for that one.

Btw, everyone seems to read something different out of an interview, I didn't sense "sarcasm" there. But each to their own etc.

Hey,

Wie gaat ook naar het feestje van The Cure? Dit wordt mijn 1e Cureshow en ben massa's enthousiast! Ik hoop op een intense trip! Zijn er nog die voor de 1e keer naar The Cure gaan komende zomer?
Of voor de gelukzakken die ze al live mochten beleven..wat was het beste optreden?
Hallo helloimageifonly,

Ik zie nu pas je berichtje. Gelukkig liepen we elkaar tegen het lijf in Londen :) Wat een toeval een Belgische curefans.com member tegen te komen om dan zowel het feestje als het concert samen te beleven. Hopelijk was het voor jou nog beter dan je had mogen dromen  :)
Ik vond het in ieder geval, top!
Op naar de volgende concerten ;-)

Cure fans were building the hype from the moment both events were announced,...

I'm sorry but this is a lie. One member of our staff wrote "Let the speculation begin".
There's nothing wrong with it. We didn't generate a "hype" - we offered our suggestions,
especially cheyler and me. Robert gave two interviews. Both were, for my taste, indifferent
and a bit sarcastic. We can't expect anything! Everything depends from the good will of The
Cure and their former members. Is that clear enough??

I did something similar to this yesterday, minus the beef. It’s my Chilean friends recipe for what he calls his chilie. Had the hardest time finding coriander here! Which is so very odd to me. I eventually tracked it down, after searching loads of shops and St Josephs market, in a French supermarket.

He tells me that every South American country has it’s own version, so it was nice seeing yours :)

I landed in Espania with no books. Luckily I found a little market in a town outside of Barcelona where they had a donation stall with some English books. I picked two up and I just finished reading the first one called “nobody true” by James Herbert. I had not prepared myself for it’s content. It’s not the kind of book you read on the beach in the sun...it’s a night book, for when everyone is asleep and can’t see your face twisting as you read the words, asking you ‘good book?’ in the process, only to be met with a silent nod.

Asides from that, I recommend it. To those with a strong stomach :)

If Croatia is going to overcome the final and win to France...

Sadly, it wasn’t to be :(

Still, the Croatian PM is the most loving and happiest person I’ve seen in a long time, she should be given the trophy.
