  1. Dave is right in what he is saying, the wizard have sound engineers dedicated for each stage and we have to limit the numbers for access to backstage etc. Each band is allowed say 1 or 2 guest passes, if they want sound engineers also then that could add up to 3/4 passes each band.... if each band gets this then thats approx 240 free passes! Anyway, the feedback from the bands/punters has been generally good so far, there are a few things we know we need to look at for next year to improve things. Any feedback please send to info@wizardfestival.com Thanks to all the bands on here that sent in demos/supported the wizard and look forward to recieving your demos around march! Cheers Ben
  2. There will be a limited amount of tickets available on the gate on the day but these will come at a premium compared with the advance prices. Weekend 80.00 Saturday 55.00 Big tents went up today and the site is looking great! excited.com!
  3. All carparking is free no matter what ticket you have! The build up has started, hope we get the weather like we had today!!! Scorchio!
  4. Yes it would be great to have that but until the festival grows and there is more demand this is something we will look at for next year, We encourage people to car share as much as possible to reduce the carbon footprint of the festival.... We are working with Central Coaches & Taxis aberdeen so if anyone fancys organising a bus/taxi then give Cammy a phone on 01224 890089 and mention the wizard festival..... you might get a good deal! Cheers Ben
  5. If theres a few of you stayin over the weekend why dont you book a mini bus together or share a taxi? Think a taxi back to Abereeen would be approx 50 between 4/5?? nae bad at that price! Or if theres anyone on here willing to car share please post details for others! Cheers ben
