I know you don't mean to, but that to me is rude. Calling J2 the KFC, cheap and nasty essentially, of festivals is disservice to the effort Paul and the team have gone to to create a European style day festival in the UK.
I wouldn't try and compare it with a camping event that will go on for days.
The production designs, levels and attention to detail are better than anything else I've seen in the UK.
A lot of stuff overseas is cheaper, which is frustrating, but everyone seems to charge more for coming to the UK. I blame Brexit.
Totally the opposite dude. I fucking love the Colonel, just not as much as Nandos. If I was looking to insult it I wouldve said its like Tennessee Fried Chicken, now thats cheap and nasty. Its a matter of opinion and I 100% stand by my comparison like its your opinion on how you read it, but you are wrong as im not calling j2 cheap and nasty. Im sure its decent, but its no Awakenings, Mysterlyand, Tomorrowland, Nature One, Time Warp...
Paul (who I also know BTW) is doing a great job and without a doubt, working with Adam Beyer to help bring the quality of Europe to the UK, finally. But its in its infancy, Awakenings just had their 20 year anniversary this year, so yes, J2 is great, im sure, but its not at a level that is a European festival, not yet. You may not like what Im saying and getting really defensive but its true. Not saying its shit, I am definitely not saying that, what I am saying is there are better parties in Europe. Questioning that would be folly on your behalf especially as you dont go to European parties, ie I would take the award off you in a shot as I would do the UK parties you go to, plus a whole lot more around the world. The quicker you accept this fact, the happier you will be
Now on the price, dude, its fuckign insane. I went to both days of Awakenings this year for the cost of J2. I blame the councils and extra policing that is needed because it the UK, there is always that chance of idiots causing shit when drunk. I havent seen one policeman when I have gone abroad, which is about 20 odd times now. The councils rape promoters because they can and therefore the cost is on the ravers. Its so shit but not much else you can do
