aj - try providing some relief by allowing us to buy full strength beers at reasonable prices instead of forcing us to drink that mid-strength shit.

i think the drink selection is more a licensing thing than aj's choice. we have full strength beer at the adelaide show.

I really wish people would start taking more responsibility for their choices around the carbon tax.

It's not

"Prices are going to rise."

It's

"I am going to raise prices"

And then you back it up with reasoning. If the reasoning isn't enough to convince people, then maybe you should be thinking about why you're doing it.

The price of everything is rising, of its own accord, instead of being increased, by people, by choice. It's such passive aggressive bullshit.

If you actually properly calculated the impact of the carbon tax on a music festival, it wouldn't be very much.

There is about an 8% increase in electricity costs and somewhere between 2 and 5% for travel costs.

The biggest cost for the festival will be artist fees which should be completely unaffacted therefore the impact of the carbon tax would struggle to be 2% I'd estimate.

as hellboy1975 has already said, promoters are so quick to raise the prices when the dollar is low, the carbon tax comes in, petrol prices rise. but when our dollar was doing brilliantly we didn't see any drop in price. maddah should stop his whining when he is part of the problem.
