That’s it, I’m done with Rainbow Serpent Festival. I’ve gone to probably 10 or so of them since 2006 and it’s unlikely I’ll return. The catalyst was another festival I went to at new years: Tanglewood. It was small, friendly and clean – attended mostly by hippies and outdoor doofers. They kept themselves nice and just as importantly, they picked up their rubbish and left a clean site. The contrast when I went to Rainbow a month after was enough for me to understand how much the crowd has changed for the worse. Also, looking through my previous blog posts, it seems that Rainbow has quite often been an iffy prospect for me and yet I still keep going.
