Attended the George Ezra concert in Dalby forest, George was ok but the traffic management ridiculous. The one way system actually caused delays, took over an hour to move 3.5 milesthen on way out why on earth traffic wasn't directed two ways, one the way we came in and one the other god knows, took an hour to move 200 yards out of the field then another hour to get out of the forest. I'm not unrealistic, I expected queues but this bad. One good point, well done the guy directing cars on the bottom gate, he was best organised letting one car at a time filter into the queue.

Sadly shan't be back any time soon.

Ive just been to see George Ezra @ Dalby Forest tonight & having been for 7 years running have never had quite so much hassle from the security/ parking staff! Its really spoilt the evening. Too many times being told not to stand here or there, stick to the footpaths on entering & exiting the arena...it was ridiculous! I went with my husband & 2 sons as always & over the years have really enjoyed listening to the live performances but never had so many rules & regulations to follow...a real shame & need to learn to live & let live & just chill out & not be sooooo bossy!!!

Fantastic Rick Astley concert. Me and the missus enjoyed it immensely and we thought how well organised it was. You can't help traffic delays with everyone leaving at the same time. Will be back for more next year, keep up the great work Forest Folk........

Just attended this event for the 6th year running - it really is something special and if you haven't been your missing out! The local camping and apres concert atmosphere adds to a great experience that offers everything from quality music to escapism from modern day trappings!Roll on next year!

great time in a beautiful environment. Just wish you would ban smoking at the park or just give smokers designated areas.

Amazing venue for Rick Astley concert. Really well organised venue and facilities and helpful staff. Concert was amazing and tickets much cheaper than larger venues making this venue far easier to see the reason you bought tickets. Looking forward to oming to Dalby Forest venue again.

Looking forward to Elbow this weekend. We enjoy the gigs but please can you organise some traffic control when we leave the venue, it's always chaotic and stressful getting out.

Guy Garvey was awesome last year, probably the best gig I've ever been to. Such an atmospheric venue! I was more than excited to see Elbow is doing it this year.

We are regular visitors to Dalby Forest & we have always loved our visits to the Courtyard Cafe but over the past few months we have noticed a big difference in the cafe. We visited the Courtyard Cafe a few weeks ago and was served instant coffee...this is completely unacceptable and I was appalled that this was being sold. The quality has declined immensely and we are very disappointed to say the least!

Erasure were awesome , along with Paloma Faith , world class

Tony Logue , 23/Mar/2016

An amazing venue. We are so lucky having such a stunning place right on our doorstep. Paul and Jacqui were great last year and I loved Paloma. This type of act (Will Young included) lend themselves so well to the feel of the forestry. I never would have even thought of going to an Erasure gig and that was possibly one of the best acts I have ever seen! The staff are a credit! I look forward to the acts every year!

Paul & Jacqui. Absolutely amazing. Live nearby, use the forest regularly, never been to a gig in the forest before though. Been and seen many great bands over the years. Always loved The Beautiful South, never had the opportunity to see them though. Totally blown away. This was my Christmas present so had a long wait but so worth it. Great venue and can't wait to go again

Had an amazing time watching James Blunt at Dalby. Me and my boyfriend are big fans and it a was a fantastic atmosphere. Very well organised and friendly staff. Had a romantic walk to and from the concert area and had a lovely late night picnic under the stars at our tent.

Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott were great/amazing -- they clearly loved singing to a crowd ---- Paloma Faith was good but was keen to escape --- her support act was terrible- rude and he did not deserve a break! There are always plenty of toilets and a good atmosphere! Looking forward to hearing who is playing in 2016
