Crunch 11 preview
Crunch 11 is happening from the 18th to the 20th November in Hay and it looks pretty amazing. Amongst the impressive looking lineup includes British Sea Power playing an 18th century chapel, 65Daysofstatic's Polinski playing a much awaited set after his aclaimed debut Labyrinths and Franz Nicolay, formery of Hold Steady, playing some of his fine solo work.
On top of that they've bagged DJ Scratchy - one of the finest DJs from the punk generation who introduced a lot of the late 70's to reggae and hottly tipped Beaty Heart who are said to be an amazing live spectacle.
The best bit about it is that despite being multi venue, you don't have to pay for all the stuff you don't want. That means you pay for what you want and not for what you don't. Seems like a good idea! You can still buy a whole festival ticket however and these are only £62 if you're quick (or £96 if you're slow...). For more info on tickets check out the website.
