    I fancied going along to the Sunday of this year’s upcoming Forever Young festival but saw that a Sunday only ticket is €132.50!

    Am I completely out of touch or is this what you would expect to pay?

    Pricey alright maybe you could volunteer for it and save yourself the cash.

    You can only do that through the Forever Young resale page. Names need to be changed.

    I was only there on Saturday but Forever Young was absolutely brilliant. All the 80s acts were amazing . Nothing beats the pounding of an analog synth. Great to see and hear Holly Johnson looking so well. Only gripe was the food queues - an hour! Great atmosphere lovely crowd sparkling weather I'm sorry I didn't camp and go the whole weekend.

    Just back from Forever Young, camped for the weekend this time. There were definitely some issues and things that could be improved, the bars on Friday night had big delays, food queues were very long over the weekend, toilets were hit and miss, queues for coffees and brekkie (in the campsite) were crazy. But overall a great experience, location is brilliant, the crowd were brilliant all weekend, the outfits were fantastic and the general atmosphere was amazing. Can see it selling out going forward as more people get to experience it. A lot of music highlights, from Marti Pellow and Paul Carrick on the first night, to Nik Kershaw, Nik Heyward, Tony Hadlee, Holly, Bad Manners, Bananarama and to finish the festival OMD were great. Sad to see Paul Young struggle but the crowd still showed him the love. Roll on next year.

    I was there Saturday and Sunday. Great relaxed vibe in the Sun. Holly Johnson knocked it out of the park without even trying. All the performers I saw genuinely looked like they were having a great time. Carol Decker and Tony Hadley were solid gold, Nik Kershaw rocked out and Nick Hayward had the crowd in the palm of his hand by the end of his set. Fantastic Day indeed.

    Was really excited to finally see OMD live and they were excellent. Sound was a bit muddy in front of the stage but their set was great. I thought Andy McCluskey was going to do himself damage at the end.

    Lowlights. Limahl strung out his set with a Powerpoint, bit lame. And brutal as it sounds Paul Young's voice is shot, really sad to see.

    Organisation was excellent. I've never seen toilets so clean at a Festival!

    Did anyone see the U2 tribute act on right before Holly? They were fkn incredible! I was in tears laughing, yer man had Bono down to a tee, even the reverb on the mike was bang on, all the cheesy one liners and all the political screens at the back. There was a big surge out of the camping chairs and down to the stage when a number or two in it became apparent how great they were. Even better than the real thing (ba-dum tisch)

    Have to agree with all the above, went both times now and very well run in comparison to other festivals, demographic has alot to do with the atmosphere so hope it doesn't get hi-kacked like others things once the good word spreads.

    One criticism id have is the bar queues would need sorting for next time and you have to have a "cold" festival beer on draught, not what we got at the weekend, thumps up for all who staffed it, very friendly which what you want..... roll on next will sell out.....

    They were good, better than Holly Johnson whom I'm no fan off think he perhaps was misplaced as a headliner. It is a great festival though.

    Hopefully it keeps the older crowd which makes it, be crap if it became flooded with youngsters and yip yops coked off their mind wandering around in their glowsticks. It just isn't that kind of festival.
