Activities to include golf, horse riding, photography workshops, highland walks, watching Ben play the piano and presumably do the other activities. You will be welcomed to the festival by a pipe and dance band!
Prices between $1,999 and $5,899 for rooms but if that seems a little steep then don’t worry, there’s an instalment plan.
Found out about this through targeted advertising on Facebook so I guess I better go eh.
Ben will join us for the first hour of the talent show
Apparently he’s already done something similar in Cuba. All seems like a strange career move. Perhaps it’s a logical parallel to stuff like the Weezer cruise, but the idea of rich ultra-fans forking out for access to Ben is particularly odd.
If you go but don’t get a round of golf with Ben can you sue them?
‘Ben Folds is widely regarded as one of the major music influencers of our generation.’
So basically going on holiday with Ben folds? To be fair - it’s 4 nights stay, so let’s say £600 a day?
Hotel stay - all your food, the concerts and some other itinery bits etc etc
The hanging out with Ben folds bit has I guess doubled the normal cost - and I can’t understand who would want to do that - but I don’t think it’s totally ridiculous ( I mean obviously it is but I think that’s kind of market rates for hanging out with your fave pop star (im seeing Todd Rundgren in April and there where tickets for that if you wanted to go and meet him afterwards which were about £320!!!))
Being nice wasn’t I
Let’s be honest it’s Frank Turners hipster fantasy camp all over again.
The fact that one the 2 gigs is also on sale to general public is a bit duff too. Just go on your own break to Scotland, go to that gig and save
Ben Folds is pretty much my favourite musician, but there’s no way I can afford this even though I fit into the “white/male/40s” thing.
I don’t know. I suppose it’s doing something different, but unless I win the lottery this isn’t happening for me. As someone mentioned above, he did it in Cuba but there were a larger number of potential customers there I guess.
