Curefest is something that a group of UK bands who were influenced by The Cure decided to do for a laugh back in 2000. Since 2000 we have run Curefest in London, Rotterdam, New York, Warsaw, Dublin and Istanbul. This year we decided to get back together and do it in London once more.
The Rocket reunion was started back in 1995 and consisted of 3 bands who wanted to play in the place where their idols had performed their first ever shows. The Pub The Rocket in Crawley has been through many name changes and is currently known as The Railway.
We have decided to run both events back to back this time, allowing for people to have an amazing weekend dedicated to The Cure. Charging £12:50 for the London show should enable us to pay bands at both events some petrol money and allow Free entry at The Rocket. Though you may buy a cemorative Rocket ticket and writsband for £2 (to help toward expenses)
There are only 200 tickets available for the London show and about room for 200 more at Crawley. If you are planning to go and see one of your friends' band play please dont expect a guestlist. The venues are very small and there just isnt room. This night is not being put on to make money, but we would like to see all the bands looked after.
Links for hotels are above. WE would suggest that people book a hotel for 2 nights in Crawley and get the train into London. The premier INN Gatwick charges £29 for a twin or triple room and is 45 min train into Victoria and 10 mins by taxi to The Rocket. For people who want to make a weekend of it we will organise a curry night & pub crawl in Crawley. We always ask that fans are respectful of the various band members' families who still live in Sussex. Any Curefest attendeeds who are found to be disrespecting this rule and Cure bothering will be asked to leave the event.
You may book London tickets below using a credit card or paypal. We can reserve you guaranteed entry for £2 per person (which will go toward PA hire) to the Rocket.
You will recieve cememorative tickets by post before August. Should the event be cancelled for any reason you will recieve a full refund for all tickets. We reserve the right to change the line up or acts due to circumstances beyond our control.
The only rules at Curefest are:
Over 18s only
No Cure family bothering whilst in Sussex
By buying a ticket you agree to the above.
