I went to All Good 2004 had to park in the very back and carry our gear to nearly the very front to camp.
I vowed not to return again unless the lineup was superb.
A few years later we did only to find you could car camp and have been going since.
However I totally agree that I feel 1000% safer at festivals w/o car camping.
I've been stuck in the camping area and couldn't get out on Sunday before where if they parked the cars separately anyone could get out.
The big problem with that at All good is given the number of people it could take you hours to set up camp if they did it that way.
I could see a scenario where they parked all the cars on the steep places and then had about 50 farmers with hay wagons circulation to haul all campers to the flat no car camping areas.
I thought the festival was run well this year, maybe best ever, but I do think they are overselling it to the point they have to cram campers everywhere and don't have enough "public transportation" to take campers to flat areas.
I'd gladly pay say 200 bucks for a ticket if they could cut off sales say at 15,000 people.
My main complaint last 2 years is it's so crowded that it's hard to stand shoulder to shoulder for hours to see the bands you want. Makes my legs sore and you can't set down.
I think maybe they should introduce a dinner break and that would cut down on crowding.
