In just a year or two, the concept of chucking powder paints at your mates en masse has gone from fringe pursuit of highly strung people who own too much powder paint to something everyone wants to join in on. In the main arena, there were three paint fights on day one. For the rest of the day, those who’d joined in could be easily identified by their orange and yellow glow.
And now, with the tenth anniversary over, Andy and Ben and everyone on the team would like to take this moment to say a very special thanks.
“From that first tent-pole climbing high-wire act at Abbot Hall Park in Kendal a decade ago, we never believed it would turn into what it has. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to every single person who has, by coming or contributing, made this festival with us.”
See you in the fields for another ten years.
