"I have been to homelands for the last 2 years now and have had a variable experience of the festival scene. There are various tents from various clubs reflecting a huge choice of dance music from Drum n Bass to tribal Trance. The cost is around £45 a ticket plus with Ticketmaster (I hate them) plus booking fee. Getting to Winchester by car is simple and the directions are labelled on route, parking the car was easy as well. There is a big ..." Read review

Muddy Marvellous!

AdvantagesMusic, crowd

DisadvantagesMud. Buses back to Winchester. Mud. Weather. Did I mention the mud?

"Music festivals, on the whole, have three stereotypical factors year in, year out - excellent music, an audience that knows how to party,and mud. This one was no exception. Homelands may not be Glastonbury or Reading, but to dance music fans it is the nadir of this generation's culture. The rain started at about 4.30p.m, and boy, did it rain!

Homelands we miss you

AdvantagesAll of it

Disadvantagesit's gone now

"I know that Homelands is no more but still feel that it is necessary to review it for my own sense of satisfaction. Homelands was an amazing festival, it kick started the festival season and was always set to be a good one (regardless of weather). I went in 2001, 2003 and even when it changed to Hi-Fi in 2006. The setting of the festival was perfect. Once you had walked up the big hill, not really sure where exactly it was leading you, you reached ..." Read review
