Reef and Toploader to Play Godney Gathering

Posted on 20 January 2011 by Joe

Recently reformed 1990s indie rockers Reef and Toploader are headlining a festival taking place in Somerset this July.

The one day Godney Gathering, taking place at Godney Farm near Glastonbury on July 16, is dominated by indie rock acts and also features The Joe Public and Rude Tiger.

Others appearing are StringerBessant, the surf folk project of Reef’s Gary Stringer and Jack Bessant, and ska punk act Shoot The Moon.

Organiser Academy of Carnival has pledged to keep prices low at the event and Somerset residents are being offered the chance to get early bird discounted tickets. A maximum price of £2.50 has been set for all beer and cider sold at the event.

A spokesman said: “There was no way I going to make any of the prices for the event over the top and that’s why every thing will be as low a cost as possible to the public “

Early bird local tickets costing £15 (plus booking fee, which according to one of our visitors appears to be £1.50) are available from Tor Records, Glastonbury, and Jaywalk Guitars, Street, from Feb 1. Tickets for the general public costing £17.50 (plus booking fee) go on sale from 1 April.

    I have just bought 2 tickets from the local supplier in Glastonbury, paid cash but was told there was a £1.50 per ticket charge on top of this, which the storeholder assured me wasn’t their fee. Surely this means the price of a ticket is £16.50 and not as stated £15!

    thanks for alerting us to that. I’ll amend the story and send your message on to the organiser. It does say £15 on the website, but does add “plus booking fee”. There certainly do appear to be question marks as to what that booking fee is for and whether it may be more accurate for the website to say tickets £16.50 as well.

    Michael, we are nothing to do with the event, we are just a music blog writing about it. You need to go to the organisers direct…there’s a link in the story.
