What's your funniest festival story?
Watching the abysmal Sisters Of Mercy headlining one of the nights at Reading around 1989 and half the crowd were VERY serious and into it and the rest of us were dancing around in big human-trains and smiling and laughing and actually being happy in front of them and all the goths got(h) even more upset and sad and had to apply more make up to comfort themselves. I'm sure all those goths are business executives now.
