    Local detractors should remember the festival is but once a year and has raised $2M for local and NZ charities over time. They should note that Sunday has evolved into a great family day, with a smaller crowd, and so an enjoyable opportunity to see many musical acts for a rediculously low price. It’s not the only event that causes congestion and inconvenience – remember yachting events, New Years Eve and sporting events, with 2am traffic jams. Where local energy is really needed is complaining to council about the failed implementation of cycle lanes on Lake Road and the daily/weekly inconvenience that I suggest is driving residents and visitors away from Devonport.

    pity about Platters window tho…. Maybe the aftershow rave at the Masonic had something to do with it

    I think the whole concept is old fashioned, stuck in an 80’s or 90’s groove and needs an overhaul. It’s great to have an annual Devonport event, but I don’t think the current festival reflects the community. Back in the hay days it did, but now it’s just not a fit. Why not up the sophistication and up the tone? Cool down the music and attract ‘jazz festival’ crowds. Tauranga jazz festival is one to emulate.

    Stunning Day. we didn’t make it down to Windsor but it must have been fantastic. Let’s hope everyone behaves…

    But it’s all boring and the same as ed, drunks everywhere and glass left behind, alot of us don’t care anymore about the whole thing.
