I was thinking of going; never been before; what's the best way to reserve tickets from the US-can you book on line? I looked at the festival web site but it wasn't clear?
Any suggestions for accommodation - I'm not set up for camping; any B&Bs-just planning to go for the weekend Fri-Sun;
as there's no reserved seating how difficult is it to get a good seat-or is it the earlier you get there the best seat you get?
Anyone else from the group going? Any of me old buddies from DFNW planning to go?

thanks for any advice,

    Hi there, I'm going for the third time and it's still a bit of a mystery.

    I'd recommend booking tickets - there are two links at the bottom of the festival site, one of which takes you to FNAC and last year I booked mine on line. I had trouble booking the number of tickets for different days so this year it was easier to print off the booking form and post it off to France.

    I realise that may not be an option if you live further away. I'd definitely get tickets beforehand as it ensures you get onto the fsival island and don't have to queue up.

    Accomodation is always difficult and this year might be even more problematic as Le Petite Barbeau site is closed. You may be lucky and find hotel accomodation in nearby Fontainebleau, Avon or Melun but then you have to get from there to the festival site. In that respect Fontainebleau is probably better served by festival buses or there's always the option of taking a taxi.

    If you are thinking of going I'd check accomodation pretty quickly and take it from there.

    always learning

    ha ok...these are the should stay at the camping in the forest,
    (because if u stay at samerau u get the "guys"....with the hair and the moves...not the music real...)
    if u take the time to walk into the petite ber camping, u can meet and play with david...pass stocholo on the way, (and maybe get invited into his caravan), jam with doradao, and meet Bernard and Marie-Joe....
    samois has become, is resisting to become, a festival....the "heads" goto samerau...the musicians, still, go the petite way...
    hope to meet u there!

    It seems that Petite Barbeau is closed this year - so it's Samoreau or Melun or Fotainebleau or wherever you can find a place to stay.

    It looks like Petit Barbeau will be open anyway.

    BTW here's the lineup that seems to be missing from the official homepage; ... ,1227.html
