  1. What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    Congrats @JoBalls hope all goes well. We are doing Womad next year as our main festival after a few years at GM. we have stopped that because of the distance and the logistics.
  2. 2018 tickets

    3 day earlybirds bought - first time for us. Have also pushed the boat out on meadow camping.
  3. Green Man Festival 2017

    Isnt there a settlers section in the field with the settlers bar and activities etc and then another section beyond the hedge into family camping?
  4. Green Man Festival 2017

    I put one up on Twickets earlier in the week along with all my other tix and they were gone within half an hour...
  5. Green Man Festival 2017

    We might not be going now as the eldest broke his wrist yesterday in a bike accident and might need surgery this week. There are loads of good meeting up places at green man though, the trouble is the weather. In fine weather it could be courtyard or main stage on the hill etc, in wet weather (lots of the time) it is more tricky.
  6. Green Man Festival 2017

    I would be around for an Efests meetup. I normally have loads of free time at GM, and its good excuse to escape the kids
  7. Family friendly festivals

    Correctly stated above - depends how old your children are and what you and they like to do. We have done lots of different types as well as your festival needs evolve as the children age. We are doing 4 this year and they are all different - none of them perfect. At the moment Green Man is our main family festival but teens aren't that well catered for but at least it is small enough that you can let them roam. Latitude would probably be better in that respect but it is too Waitrose for us. You have to choose where your compromises are.
  8. Festival cancelled due to mud

    It would be more useful to have a list of indie festivals that arent controlled by this group and Live Nation - how many are there left?
  9. Cheap BST tickets?

    On the BST thread in other festivals.
  10. Tummy Bug ...anyone else ?

    Yeah it was a really vintage year all round I think.
  11. Tummy Bug ...anyone else ?

    yuck, sorry to hear that @Mardy. You could have taken my sherpa's approach and do the packing up and carry all of her stuff. We do that and I swan down to Gate A with just a daybag and the tent. Did you have a good fest otherwise?
  12. 2017 - The Changes

    I didnt see it reopen and it was very annoying as we use that a lot normally.
  13. 2017 - The Changes

    I really like the new SH cut through and moving the Hare Krishnas there worked really well from a punters pov - not sure how they found it. I'm going to restrain myself from talking about Lovebullets again. Other changes? A whole side of craft village missing replaced with what looked like a car park/dumping ground for infrastructure - very odd.
  14. The Atmosphere at Stages

    Frank carter followed by the Killers looks incredible on the iplayer. We had a lovely bimbling/stone circle afternoon though followed by sampha at the Park and Metamorphosis and it was grand.
  15. Places you never made it to

    Strummerville, cineramageddon and the JP this year.
