GreenZone Military Festival - Dont worry its not like the other shit!

#1
I realise I’m probably gonna get beasted on here for this whether you like it or not but here goes.

I want to tell you about a new music festival for the Military called GreenZone Festival, it’s a 3 day camping event held in Loughborough, Leicestershire over the weekend of June 29th 2012. The line-up includes bands like Reverend and The Makers, The Sunshine Underground, Little Comets, Dirty Goods plus loads more. Our comedy stage is being headlined by Dirty Sanchez`s Pritchard VS Dainton plus loads of comedians and live acts covering the weekend (it will be like 18-30`s meets a festival). Plus the usual randomness (like midgets with water pistols full of tequila) that you would expect a squaddie to come up with when asked to plan a festival.

I left the Army last Aug after serving 12 years to set up a decent event for the lads/ladies. Every Military event I went to, be it a camp families day where I spent the day drinking warm beer out of a 9x9 dodging shit jobs whilst planning my getaway down town or a Military festival full of civvies where the star attraction is no doubt the kit you work on all day, and more recruiting trailers than bars. ### I am not knocking them too much as I know they raise loads of money for Military charities ### but they were not what I liked to do in my time off.

GreenZone is different! We are proud to say "the only Military thing at our event is you". We have linked up with Forcespenpals.co.uk to stop the usual sausage fest you get at these things. Further to that we will also be donating 10p from every £1 profit to H4H, ABF and Cash 4 Commandos. The event is open to all serving, ex serving and their supporters.

I would love to hear what you all think. Plus we still have just under 3 months to the event so tell me what you would like to see there!

Let the beasting commence.

at between £50 to £120 to attend a work themed party with my family, and stay in a tent I have to erect myself. Bargain.

I'm disabled, as my organ of olfactory sense was shot off during the battle of Jubilee, can I bring my smelling-nose dog?

Dunno, but it will cost you £50 quid advanced ticket to find out, or £70 on the day.

I've quickly decided to remain ignorant of the line up.

Is a busload of nurses coming to your event?

Forcespenpals? Are you going to have letter writing tents and posties as the QRF? If you get a few lady Navy seals, the Walrus might be interested. And what's wrong with a sausagefest? US politicians love' em.

With the greatest of respect £84 for a "full" ticket!?

Yes I know that other festivals are double the price, but they have a slightly different class of line up.

Don't get me wrong, I hope your festival does well, but I think the pricing may be a just a little bit out. £45 tops for the weekend would be reasonable, £84 when booked in advance just isn't.

"Forcepenpals are attending to stop the usual sausage fest."

Decodes as - "We've invited loads of fat, lonely fuckers that smell of cats and despair, you're better off going on the pull in a hospice as they wont bug the fuck out of you for the next two years."

There must also be a question mark about presenting such a "target rich environment" for those in the world that do not generally share our views?
I assume Site Security will be robust,and not a couple of the OP's mates doing it to get a free pass?

PS I don't like your website either.

I'm all for charity bashes - or should that be bashas? - but this will be a magnet for Walts. I can't think of anything worse than listening to a spotty youth on at least 1.5 Pints telling me about Bosnia/Hereford/Basra and how it's all changed. I went to some airshow out in the west country and it was awash in blokes with craphats listening in to ATC and aching to be fighter jocks etc. Wannabees make my blood boil.
