  1. NOS Alive 2018

    Thanks for the reply. Really tempted for the fallow year, and the other big U.K. festivals don’t appeal any more. It’s NOS or one of the smaller ones over here.
  2. NOS Alive 2018

    Just signed up to the mailing list for this, previous line ups look top drawer. Whats the accommodation situation? Do you book into hotels/b&bs? And what about booze? Well priced? Can you drink in the arenas?
  3. Kate Tempest - Extraordinary

    Just watched it in iplayer. Relentless. So powerful.
  4. Dick move of your festival......

    Nah, not bald. There were two blokes, one woman. One woman had short blonde hair, one bloke had big curly hair. They were nice people, all having good banter until it kicked off.
  5. Dick move of your festival......

    There were punches swinging from both sides, don't think any hit. Then I thought it had calmed down but he went up to the side door. You're right though, the guys in the toastie van weren't waiting for him to land a blow first. I'm glad to hear how it started though, pathetic really.
  6. Top 5 Acts

    1 Flaming Lips - reckon everyone who saw this will have it in their top five. Incredible, emotional, life-affirming, pure joy. And best Bowie cover of my festival 2 Future Islands - I danced start to finish. Great performance and crowd. 3 Foos - consummate festival band. Timed my beer run to coincide with the half hour lull in the middle, which was a stroke of luck. 4 Avalanches - party. Only downside was the didn't have the screens on, so the wife couldn't see anything despite only being a few rows back. Love the personality of the West Holts crowd. 5 - Chic - Start to finish discofest. Joyous good fun. Glass Animals, Justice, Royal Blood were all ace. Enjoyed Rag and Bone Man for his reactions, bottom lip acquiver at anything by the that point. In fact, amazing I didn't bawl at Bazza or Niles. Didn't see a bad band all weekend.
  7. Food offer 2017

    Squid was the best food of the weekend for me, and all the best food was round the eastern end of the site. Ive learnt to avoid the stalls nearest the campsites. Poor pie in the campsite up near Arcadia, lovely one near the pyramid. Stingy burrito near the camping by the Beat Hotel. Much better and more generous one in Silver Hayes. Still think there was better to be had elsewhere though.
  8. Dick move of your festival......

    I didn't see anyone pissing on the land except for at the urinals by the pyramid on Sunday for Biffy. And only got pushed in at at the bar once all weekend, also pyramid Sunday at the Mandela bar. No need. Only true dickhead was a scouse lad at the toastie van up from Beat Hotel about 3am Saturday night. To be fair, the guy making the toasties was mashed and struggling with the complexity of the toasted sandwich maker. Missed the initial spark but the scouse lad got really angry, started swinging punches over the counter. His girlfriend was trying to calm him down but he broke free, stomped to the side of the van and went up the steps to go in the door punching and kicking. Think he took a few kicks and a head butt before he was dragged away by a mate. Seemed really out of place, and no need, whatever was said. Complete knob. Must admit I enjoyed the spectacle though.
  9. West Car Parks - updates...

    Even in this, everyone is so nice. Except the twat in the van.
  10. West Car Parks - updates...

    A couple of people have just come through West 55 saying that another gate will be opened in 30/40 minutes. There is hope!
  11. West Car Parks - updates...

    Apparently there's also an accident on the northbound M5. Wouldn't be surprised if we're being intentionally held back because of that. Either way it can't help. Just had a dirty burger though, which has improved the mood in this car.
  12. Fatboys 2017 secret sets

    Not when I was there.
  13. Confirmed secret sets 2017

    And what's going on up The Park now?
  14. The Silence of the Longdrops

    Can anyone link to that picture of the long drops from below? (For a friend you understand). Been searching but can't find it on the recent threads.
  15. Missing

    Not mentioned on here but I thought Tall Ships would be there. I really like that first album. And French and Saunders. And was hoping for Boxed In. Still, I'll get over it.
