  1. Camper van field hell

    Yes it was!

    Yes it was!
  3. Camper van field hell

    Inflammatory topic! I think it was just a bit mad and stressful trying to arrive and leave. My stress was down to the fact I hired the van and had a tight deadline to get out. We helped loads of people get vans on the field too on arrival day. I can see both sides of the story though. We were helped out in the end by a fellow camper who had a 4x4. Truly lovely people.

    Yeah us too,Where we were there was no unoccupied pitches, it was gridlock, right at the bottom. It was rough going.

    Absolutely separate wrist bands needed!! The drug fuelled wolf woods residents target the campers when they get bored and run out of food and booze!
  6. Camper van field hell

    Did anyone else stay in camper field? We were ushered o the bottom of the hill on arrival and knew instantly we would never get out of there!! It took two four wheel drives tied together to get us out. Unfortunately we left on Sunday as we knew we would never get the hired van out on time on Monday. Having a return time and all. I would love to know if people got out on Monday ok? I am gutted to have cut short the festival. Never had to do that before, I'm a veteran of KC. Been since the beginning when it was tiny, and lovely! So sad to say I don't think I will be back. We have done all methods of camping in all different fields before, in all different weather, inc deer lodge. Made a mistake this year bringing a van again. The most stressful festival I have ever been to this time! The walk of hell from camper field to arena took so long we kept missing everything. But what we did see was poor. Boring headliners with poor sound. And I would normally give plenty time to manics and stereophonics but yawn! Best stuff as usual was small lesser known bands. Best time was as always watching gypsies of Bohemia !

    Right, reason I asked is because different campsite traffic s filtered in through different roads. Emperor and posh yurts moving most fluidly. But all the same it is not bad entering in general either, I have never arrived at 7.30 though! So unsure. I have done 3pm Thursday, 10am Friday and 7 pm Thursday. All fine . Also arrived for yurt field, which was a bit like celebrity access! One year they messed up the road plan and it was dire, but they improved it since then. Any other questions?

    It will be busy no matter what the time, but last year things moved very smoothly none the less. Which field are you camping in?
  9. lindisfarne festival

    Hi there, I saw people with full on fire pits, those metal ones which are raised. So I think you would get away with anything so long as it's raised off the ground. It is a lovely festival. Very small and pretty

    Anyone going this year? this festival needs support - it was beautiful last year
  11. Big thumbs up

    It was just fantastic this year. Oh how i long to be back hence browsing this site!! Highlight was Horseman in the ever fantastic Chai Walla! never seen him without Prince Fatty - fantastic set. also the weather - the bars - the sun - the people - loved the extra security, and there defo was a lot less knob heads . Emperor so clean and tidy - excellent loos. Did anyone walk down to the village green? they had top notch facilities there - starting to wonder how Emperor can charge more now!
  12. BUYING OR SELLING TICKETS

    is this because you ended up with one in with your tickets , is it a 'general camping' red hanger? i think i have one too - i got my emperor hanger then hadn't a clue what that red one was for. I will sell mine too if it is defo not needed?!
  13. 2016 - Any help or advice needed ?

    There were definitely showers in deer lodge last year. behind the row of toilets and next to the hairdryer/straightener tent
  14. 2016 - Any help or advice needed ?

    The car park is not far at all from the deer lodge field. The bell tents are closest then a little further up hill to the yurts and tipis. But still not far - but this year they may change the position of them. Cant believe that they have charged for the little pamper tent this year! hiring a yurt is costly enough! Showers were available in deer lodge along with chargers etc. do you have to use the emperor showers this year?
  15. 2016 - Any help or advice needed ?

    I have - its fab. The luxury of not having to put up your own tent , ease of access parking wise - no queue to get in. concierge to help you to your yurt.phone charging available. nice little food outlet on site. Pamper Tent with straighteners and hair dryers included in cost. Loads of room around your yurt, no complete knackers camped next to you as they have been priced out. just fantastic. Unfortunately i'm back in emperors this year.
