  1. Tickets Despatched!!!!! glast-GOOOOO!

    Finally received mine this morning. I can now believe I'm going!
  2. Electronica/Dance

    Hello, looking for some tips and I think this is the right place to ask I'm not big into dance music, but I do like a bit of a boogie - especially at a festival. The dancier stuff that I do tend do listen to is along the lines of Justice, Crystal Castles, Simian, CSS, Sleigh Bells, SBTRKT, Caribou, The XX etc, so I guess pretty electro-pop/indie/house kind of stuff. I was wondering if anyone can recommend me a few acts that are on this year in places like The Common, Shangri-La, Block9, Silver Hayes etc that I might enjoy based on what I've said above. I feel like I always miss out on a lot of SE corner action because I don't really know any of the acts, but I'm sure there would be plenty on I'd love if I knew what to look out for! Any help or advice would be appreciated!
  3. Personal Worst / most embarrassing event

    Nowhere near as embarrassing as some of these but I fell asleep outside my tent on Saturday afternoon in 2013 wearing a crochet dress. Got sunburn through the crochet and spent the next few weeks with a flower pattern branded onto my skin. Terribly irresponsible I know, but I had set up my umbrella along the side of my tent to keep me in the shade, but that dang sun just kept on moving!
  4. box of red wine

    I'm planning on taking a couple of boxes of red from Aldi and whenever it's super hot and sunny in the day time (which, of course, it will be) I'll buy a bottle of Sprite and make myself a refreshing tinto de verano.
  5. What dry shower gel type things does everyone use? Anyone know if this one is any good? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Muc-Off-Dry-Shower-200-ml/dp/B009IUT4EQ/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1463212221&sr=8-5&keywords=dry+shower
  6. This is great - thanks for sharing! Have been looking for a cheap double airbed so I might have to snap one of these up
  7. Sziget 2016

    Thanks very much for this! I did try and read the blog earlier but I couldn't load it up at work. Now that I'm home I can sit down and have a good read
  8. Sziget 2016

    I'm thinking of going to Sziget for the first time this year with a few friends. I've read over this thread but I've got a couple of questions We're thinking of staying in a hostel and just doing a day or 2 at the festival. How do you get from the city into the festival and back? I'm guessing I should be looking at the Citypass? And will we be able to stay late enough to experience all the late night stuff? We're thinking of getting tickets for the Monday and potentially the Sunday - will there be plenty going on these days? Can anyone recommend any good hostels to stay in? And just generally does anyone have any tips for a Sziget newbie?
  9. new here? introduce yourself

    Primary - KS2 focus. How about you? Can't wait to get stuck in!
  10. new here? introduce yourself

    I'm starting teacher training in September too, going to have to find some new festivals in the school holidays for the future! I absolutely loved 2013 too, had a great weekend - and we got a decent amount of sun!
  11. new here? introduce yourself

    I only joined this year as my friend who somehow always had mysterious Glastonbury information before anyone else admitted that he got it all from here. Have since whiled away far too many hours on the forum!
  12. That's a great plan! I went to a New Years Eve party that culminated in a big outdoor display and the venue gave us all space-blanket-poncho things to keep us warm and dry. Might try and find a few of those as I could pop them over my whole outfit whether I'm cold or wet and still look jazzy!
  13. Adele

    I personally won't be going to see Adele and I'm fine with that - there's plenty to see and do at Glastonbury. Musically I think she's a great booking for the festival - she's a new headliner, she's current, popular and relevant and there are a lot of people who do enjoy her music. I do, however, find it a bit jarring that she's playing a festival like Glastonbury given her comments on things like tax in the past. She seems to have this 'regular girl' type image going on but then complains about contributing to the state. If I'm mistaken feel free to call me out but I've tried to do a bit of research and keep finding that quote from a couple of years ago about her not being able to get on a bus.
  14. Adele

    In my experience Primavera book a lor of new and exciting bands and also have great returning artists. Saw Kendrick in one of the 'headline' type* spots a couple of years ago and he was incredible, which is what a lot of people are keen to see at Glastonbury. Perhaps some of their bookings aren't what everyone is expecting but that's one of the things that makes it so good *line up is done a little differently with the festival going on so late
  15. Anyone got any input on portable phone chargers vs spare batteries? I have the Samsung S4 so thinking I might buy a couple of spares and take them with me.
