  1. Latitude Festival 2017

    Highlights for me were Public Service Broadcasting, Honeyblood, Goldfrapp, Placebo, Sunflower Bean and Kevin Morby. Succumbed and went to Mumfords and actually ended up enjoying it. Ended the weekend sweating and getting pushed around in Fatboy! Apparently field was half empty for Fleet Foxes. Watched a bit of Loyle Carner before that and he was great. Green camping was great and very quiet, toilets were OK and only broke down a few times but we were close to the campervan loos so used those. Crowds of piseed/drugged teenagers barging around but you get those anywhere, otherwise, was a pure Joulesfest of middleaged mums and dads but not a problem. Drinks in arena were crap and overpriced and was very disappointed with the food - again bland and well overpriced. A few nore independents would sort that out. weather was great which helped a lot. Easy enough to sneak spirits into arena so that helped. Left this morning and was straight out with no queues, about a 30 minute queue on way in Thursday but again, no biggie. What a place to get to though!! Tractors and trucks all the way back to the A1! Would I go back - depends on the lineup. Need to up game for next year to get me to commit on hoping the lineup will be good. Going to wait and see. Friendly place though, and met some nice people.

  3. Latitude Festival 2017

    Still not looking forward to my 6 hour drive tomorrow though. Even Glastonbury looks closer as it was motorway most of the way.
  4. Latitude Festival 2017

    I might not go just to be stubborn and bloody minded. Pop back to the campsite , have a few sneakies then jump back in when M&S are finished and go and freak out in the Hot Dub Time Machine for a couple of hours or HVOB at the Sunrise for a bit. bizarre bit of scheduling. Having said that I really am looking forward to not having to trek too far in comparison to Glastonbury a few weeks ago.
  5. Latitude Festival 2017

    TBH after clocking up around 65 miles according to my FitBit at Glastonbury, I am really looking forward to the somewhat more contained area of Latitude. My old legs can't take all that walking AND dancing. Need to be able to smuggle some gin or rum in though.....Wine bag in my pants??
  6. Lindesfarne festival

  7. Nice Surprises

    Rusty Shackle!! Saw them in the Avalon - they were fantastic.
  8. Dick move of your festival......

    Yep. However, the counterfeit ones had small differences/mistakes, which made it all the harder to check. That looks like a genuine one.
  9. Dick move of your festival......

    We were warned that the orange EPOs were the ones that had been counterfeited the most. Many/most (?) were crew bands but a lot of others also seemed to have them. As to the dicks, thanks to the group of idiots at West Holts for Justice who took exception at the crowd dancing around them who were disturbing their spoons up noses every 5 minutes antics. Take it elsewhere. Thanks (not) also to the various groups of scouse scallies trying to smuggle themselves and god knows what else in through various methods and gates, who decided to start abusing and threatening me for discovering them.
  10. New Quechua "Fresh & Black" Tents

    If you are talking the normal pop ups not the Air, then you would be OK in a 2 man, but I've got both, and the three man just gives you that extra space. If you can go for the three. the only drawback is that the disc when folded is about 30% bigger - not a huge problem though. I used the 2 man last couple of years but now I have the 3 man, would not want to go back if i didn't have to. The three man gives that extra flexibility and worth paying a little extra for.
  11. New Quechua "Fresh & Black" Tents

    I've got one night shift and I'm sure that it will come into its own trying to sleep through the morning after that. The other shifts are a late and an early so no real problems there.
  12. The state of the ground.

    Looking good dated 8/6/17
  13. New security measures in place

    I wouldn't worry. Apart from when he is on the Avalon Stage on Sunday, look who we've got looking out for us:
  14. New Quechua "Fresh & Black" Tents

    Yes, it is a Vango Gear Store. It is not a Quechua bit of kit so not specifically designed for the Quechua tents, but is a universal fit. Got mine off ebay for around £40 delivered but they are around £60 in camping shops opnline and the cheapest i can find now on ebay is £50 delivered: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vango-Gear-Store-small-tent-extension-Cactus-Green-Porch-/331943353085?hash=item4d495d9afd:g:v1cAAOSw6n5XtDRk
  15. New Quechua "Fresh & Black" Tents

    Set it up inside (or tried to) - not really enough room and not pegged out or any guys used so all looks saggy and floppy.Will all tighten up when pegged and guyed. However, bucketing down outside so don't want to get it all wet. However, the Gear store fits the F&B three man pop up absolutely perfectly. There is a guy on the elasticated bit of the gear store that will, if needed attach to the rear of the tent to anchor it, but that should not be needed unless there is a howling wind. The elasticated section on the store stretches to the exact dimensions of the F&B pop up tents. It will basically double the available space in the tent, although you can make it smaller by sliding it further back over the tent if you want. You can easily sit in a camping chair in the extension. Cannot fully stand up, but you can if stooping. No groudsheet in the extension, but just take a big ikea bag or similar to put wet boots etc in. When weather improves going to do a full trial set up so might update then
