Glastonbury for Geeks?

April 23, 2004 at 5:59 pm

e-fest.gife-Festival brings an entirely new concept to computer events in the UK. It is the refreshing change that the industry has been waiting for, bringing the fun and enthusiasm back into computing. ?We reckon it could easily grow in future years into ?a Glastonbury for geeks?,? says MD of e-Festival Ltd, Jeremy Spencer, a veteran of the UK computer magazine industry.

?e-Festival isn?t just for the hard-core enthusiasts,? he adds. ?It?s aimed at families and small businesses who want to get more out of computing ? it?s a festival of technology and its creative application that will include evening entertainment for those who want to stay on site, as well as a 24-hour LAN party.?

What a classic quote!

Despite the self-mocking ‘Glastonbury for Geeks’ reference, E-fest sounds mad; the LAN party will be a 1000 seater; the UK’s biggest so far; I’ve never done stuff like that since my first try; I was playing a gig for the launch of a new cyber cafe in Brighton, and after a few shots of the free vodka, I fancied my chances at a little Deathmatch Quake.

Got the shit kicked out of me multiple times by some 12 year old nerd. I keep my deathmatching strictly between these four walls since then…

Anyway, I might not be able to resist this one, cos I’ll be playing a live set there on one of the evenings; I’ll let you know more when I do.
