Yes, I went this year, and will be heading next year as well. It is a great convention, with a beautifull location. I think it's worth the travel, because it's  a weekend, the 2nd day Circusplanet will organise a meeting. You have to find a place to sleep yourself though.

Last year the MFP was invited as one of the guests (Priam, Eric, Antonin, JiBe, Baptiste and Trash). There were a LOT of diabolists there. This year, we have other guests (including Norbi, which went this year as well though), and it's going to be awesome! Definitely worth it.

So, see you in February then maybe.

As Tijn said, i went last year. It was awesome, really really nice space on the first day (and Daan said they are trying to get the space again for the second day too, sweeet) great show line-up, and great people, definately worth attending.
As Tijn also said, i will be there again this year, and i'm really excited about that.

See you there.

I wouldn't count on the MFP in Ypres if I were you. For now, the only name that's officially announced is Norbi's. Other names of guests will follow. The information is on www.ieper.circusplanet.net but you already said that yourself. There's an English version of the site.

I was there last year, and it was great! I'll be going again this time. :)

The MFP won't be coming this year. They were a guest last year, so it's about time for some new ones :wink:

More information will be available in the next couple of months... just be patient :)

There probably will be a section on the website soon, with a list of hotels, B&B's etc. Last year we had a list with that stuff on the website... Please be patient :)

And other news, it's now officially confirmed that Stefan Sing will be there as one of the guests! Isn't that awesome? :D

He's one of world's famoust 3 ball jugglers. From rec.juggling:

Quote from: Top 40 most favourite/popular jugglers
- Voice over: 8
Stephan Sing climbs 6 places to number 8. This year the ball manipulation
master has performed around his native Germany, including the Berlin
Juggling Convention. He stars in a new instructional DVD produced by Alan
Blim and also teaches at the Juggling Katakombs.
Online he effortlessly keeps a high profile by the old video "Bremen 3
Ball Improv" which remains a strong favourite among 3 ball jugglers
everywhere.
At the moment Stephan's wife is expecting a baby and has convinced
Stephan to start growing his hair again to look more like a responsible
father.

Cut to interviw with Philip Meyhoefer, Stephan's juggling partner:
"Our new act will use over 40 different kinds of juggling balls, from
saggy beanbags, through footballs, and all the way up to walking globes.
The final sequence involves fire juggling balls too. You'll see it next
year in the EJC gala show."

And if you take a look at www.ieper.be (change to English in the right topcorner), you probably can find a few hotels and stuff. Good luck!

First of all I apologise if this thread is a repeat of another similar one. I knew someone had probably started one like this but I couldn't find one using search. I don't think i missed one. Sorry if I did.

I just want to figure out who's going and who's not and i could do with some more info as I found it really hard to find much info in English.
