  1. Glasto 2017 from the eyes of a first timer

    I wouldn't be worrying about that There are some people who just aren't bothered by it all, but if it presses your button it stays down for many many years. Lovely read - next time the fling will turn into a love affair - hope you make it!
  2. Boomtown?

    They've never sold out quickly before - with the lack of lineup at release and it being out of the mainstream pop music thing it's appeal is limited
  3. Boomtown?

    This is a blessing - the place can be a nightmare when you've actually got a full line-up to see and rush around! There are too many crazy distractions to actually manage it and you'll miss loads There are people who go just for the games.... I have never found the time but the space kittens from our group who did were loving it
  4. Boomtown?

    I used to think you were such a nice chap
  5. Boomtown Fair 2017

    Back and very broken from a rather harder work Boomtown... that was rough. My feet feel totally pulverised and I've done something awful to my left big toe, but reality is starting to creep back in. Seemed like it took a day longer than usual for the vibe to really settle after the unfortunate queue chaos and mud-shock - was just incredible how many people had turned up in their nice white trainers considering the obvious weather issues, but by Saturday almost everything was completely solid again and all the colour came back The scanners failing on the public gates is a curse and blessing. After that happened all new supershiny scanners that worked FAR FAR better than anything we've had in the past 5 years turned up - it may have been enough of a whoopsie to kick The Ticket Sellers into action and could well mean it'll all run more smoothly next year. The new bar folk seemed to run things better too but no Black Rat to be found anywhere sadly. Friends who played through the game/story stuff said it was great fun and had a variety of mad experiences, seems it could end several ways - still failed to do it myself though! All the BHI stuff was very slick with the ads and videos all over. Great step up from last time The Jolly Dodger was missed apparently it had rot. Seems there might be big changes next year with full on redevelopment of Mayfair by Banghai Industries, the Lion's Den having an entire new crew and threats of Oldtown getting bulldozered. The next chapter title has been revealed as "The Machine Cannot Be Stopped" 16th - 19th Aug

    It's been hammering it most of today... Production side is a bomb site, public areas not so bad as folk have tried to keep off it. It's all gonna be down to when this stops and how quickly it all drains. Should be walking boots stuff.... Will go have a look in the bowl later and report back

    Ah don't sweat it, not the world's biggest deal just a bit more fun. Sorry if it came across harsh

    Please don't post spoilers or build pictures - they specifically ask all over site for no build pictures on social media and it spoils a lot of magic and surprise for newbies. Maybe provide links or tell people how to find them if they can't help themselves, but give folk a chance.

    Yes, and yes and no and no.... There can be dogs at the staff gates too. Booze limit is more relaxed but don't take the piss and still no glass etc. The crew camping <-> festival gates have a security on them checking wristbands but that's it.

    What are you imagining when you say "in case the worst happens"? As a glasto person I'm thinking you mean weather and r*in. The ground there is a few inches of soil then chalk - it doesn't really do mud. Some of the low points in the bowl can get briefly flooded in a proper downpour but it drains away very quickly and even when it's been hammering it down for ages you only get a few inches of mud max.
  12. Boomtown Fair 2017

    This pretty much sums up my feelings about this year - with that and what appears to be a much deeper commitment to the already fab street theatre/theming/alternate reality playing stuff I'm bracing for some more moments of genuine hysterics at the madness of it all. Dare I say it the weather looks like it'll be good too
  13. Boomtown Fair 2017

    OOOOH that's so very exciting - you're going to love it tommywillo! To nab one of their page's posts.... Who's excited to see what's gonna replace this?
  14. Boomtown Fair 2017

    YAH BOO SUCKS No it's kinda true. I'll be 41 there are a load of younger efesters though, maybe less vocal on the boards but they read it still and a few of them turned up last year, we're far from all old gits. The average age at Boomtown seems to have gone up a lot, nearer 30 now I think
  15. BoomTown 2017 alone!

    I still have an efests boomtown flag somewhere if people want it for a shared camp? No spare pole anymore though
