Three hours in CBMF lineup

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

In re­sponse to how smoothly the Cavendish Beach Mu­sic fes­ti­val went here's my ex­pe­ri­ence. My hus­band and I have faith­fully at­tended Cavendish Beach Mu­sic Fes­ti­val. Fri­day, he left work early as we headed from Souris to Cavendish with our tick­ets which cost us very close to $200.

The lady I spoke to on the phone stated “just have your or­der num­ber and ID and you will have no prob­lem.”

We showed up around 6 p.m. to see Dan and Shay but of course to wait pa­tiently for Steve Earle and then Eric Church. But this did not hap­pen.

In­stead I was forced to stand in an un­or­ga­nized line filled with drunk teenagers to wait for a bracelet to prove I bought a ticket. I al­ready had a piece of pa­per al­ready stat­ing that.

We stood in this line till nearly 9 p.m., al­most three hours. I missed Dan and Shay and Steve Earle which was most of my rea­son for com­ing. We didn't have time to look at any of the booths, re­lax or meet up with any of our friends. I am truly dis­ap­pointed and very an­gry that my hard-earned money and tick­ets were wasted stand­ing in a line up. Holly Gallant, Souris
