  1. HASFEST 5 is fast approaching , so here is a brief rundown of planned events and details for all you good folks
    Hasfest will begin on Friday night with the opening party. For the past few years this has been quite a bangin affair , however this year the plan is to take a different route opening the weekend with a sonic earth ritual based around bass, beats and fire, expect heavy dub blissed out beats, out law space cadets and of course the unexpected.
    The party will be held in and around the grove from 8 pm
    Stalls …. A fine array of quality and shiny goods for sale
    workshops …..Fantastic workshops this year including journeying , belly dance and a host of pop-up workshops and events to cram in
    Goddess and Blessings tree – fly your libations , blessings honouring and wishes
    Following on from last years awesome success on Saturday afternoon we will be staging another SONIC JAM
    The mission is to put the Rock and Roll into Hasfest, everyone is invited to come together with drums instruments or voice and create a massive noise . Last years sonic Jam was described as a dark tribal Joy Division – which is cool . some amps and guitars are available so come along and let’s get it on.
    Belly dance performances from HIPSTERIA , BLACKART BELLES and TERRA VON DARE
    8pm onwards Burning Man followed by fireside drumming and dancing. For some of the highlights of the weekend the primal fusion of rhythm flame and togetherness, bring drums rattles didgeridoo s etc
    For anyone wishing to camp at Hasfest please be aware of the following
    Camping is free but basic
    Toilets are only available during pub opening hours
    There is no stand pipe or provision for drinking water so bring enough bottles to last you
    Sinks are available in pub during opening hours
    There are no showers
    Because Hasfest is not a ticketed event the number of stalls and people wishing to camp is a bit of an unknown until the event is running. We will always endeavour to accommodate everyone, but please be aware that space is limited and pitches may become cozy
    Please be polite and courteous when pitching as it is only for one or two nights
    Anyone with a large tent caravan or motorhome please see a member of the crew before pitching
    Stallholders, please see a member of crew before pitching so that we can provide a good position for trading
    Please be aware that if space becomes a problem we may ask that vehicles be parked off site
    All rubbish/waste must be taken home with you
    Campers must leave the site by 4.00pm Sunday.
    Once again the owner and staff of The New Inn have allowed this event to happen for free, and shown tremendous support and respect. So please support them by taking advantage of their fine beverages and well priced food
    Hasland village is situated under a mile from The New Inn. There are a large number of shops a late night garage and fast food outlets
    If you are camping , please bring adequate drinking water and it may be wise to make some consideration towards toilet functions, also please remember bin bags as all rubbish must be taken home.
    Please please please have a good time but be responsible, not only for yourselves, but also for your children and animals, please show respect for the area , the local residents and our hosts The New Inn, and please be polite , courteous and tolerant with fellow Hasfesters . the crew give up their free time and money and work hard each year to ensure we all have a free, relaxed, awesome weekend. Please help them to make it happen.
    A big, big thanks to them all
