Hello everyone!

Less than a fortnight till Rockfest! It's time to start getting organised, so there are a few things I need feedback on :)

If you haven't already, please see this thread and choose your font for the poster that the Rocktastic Zedrock is putting together.


Also, if you get a chance, please head over to the Ale House in Thorins Gate (small door to the left before entering the large Thorins Hall gate) and let me know if you like this for a venue. I have gone off the original venue (in Falathlorn) as it's just not rock enough! I will make a final decision on venue before Zed's posters go out, hopefully before the weekend. Of course if you have any ideas for venues then I am open to suggestions :)

Thanks!

ETA: Post edited as we now have a full line up!

I am not sure if it is wise to change the location so drastically while publicity for Falathlorn has allready been made.

I discussed this topic with the other Ladies and we inspected the Ale Hall..

There might be the danger of layering in that place. Furthermore it has no clear central spot/stage suitable for the bands to line up. Winterstock is allready situated in the Dwarven parts of Ered Luin. These lands have an overall wintery feeling over them... Visitors travelling to the Summer Rockfest might be witnessing snow falling...

Many Summer Rock Festivals have nice outdoor locations, be they 'rocky' in themselves or not...

Sticking to Falathlorn there is a beautifull location in Celondim that seems made for concerts, in fact I remember The Shades having performed there and when I was younger I used to meet my Lute Teacher there to practise songs.
It is easy to find, close to a stable, accesible for all levels, no disturbing npc's, pretty at night and at daytime, plenty of room for a crowd...

I will try to link to some paintings of the location later...

With warm regards,
Carthien Merilin

Some good points Carthien, thanks, and the spot you mention sounds good, if you could link to a pic or even just directions to get there that would be fab!

I have put Lady Ithillameth's paintings of the stage here:

At the milestone in Celondim follow the path that goes first south-west then south. You will see stairs and a large gate. Climb the stairs, on top follow the path to the south untill you cross a small bridge. You should see the stage area by now.

Radar location is: Falathlorn 29.4S, 92.7W

Warm Regards,
Carthien

Ah yes I know the spot, it's very similar to the current venue which is a bit closer to the stable :)

Ok so...
May be a good antithesis opposite of what music we will play, as you want to precipitate the departure of the Elves to Valinor i presume :)

* tries to hide that she is laughing at Master Zedrock's wittiness *

...do not count on that Master Zedrock: we had a Metal Festival in a park in our neighbourhood (known for housing mainly young families and oldagers) a few weeks ago and I did not notice anyone pack their bags yet *grins*
