With people flying in from all over the globe 11 days notice is not good enough! For many of us the festival was over when Marilyn Manson cancelled his appearance. Personally all I want is my ticket money back. Like many others I only booked tickets because I wanted to see Manson at what would have been his only UK show.
The biggest fear is the show will go on with a half-assed setlist, far short of the 180 bands across 7 stages we were promised. I know I won't be attending that Pity-Fest. With thousands of pounds already spent on non-refundable hotels and flights the most welcome option for many of us would be to call the whole thing off and give us our ticket money back. It wouldn't be much, but it'd be better than nothing.
Unfortunately there'll probably be lots of hotel rooms going to waste this August, but in case you didn't know a lot of airlines allow you to change the time and destination of your trip for a fee. I've already planned a break in Paris where I'll find it a bit easier to mellow out about this whole disaster.
