  1. Electronica/Dance

    What was the heat like in May? We were there in late Aug/early Sept and it is was close to unbearable. Can not imagine outside clubbing in that heat! Went to a dance night at the Sky Club which was good but some things were missing
  2. Getting campervan sticker off

    WD40 just worked a treat - many thanks
  3. Electronica/Dance

    Went to the Pickle Factory, Bethnal Green last night for Secret Sundaze. Small venue but nicely busy till 4am. Giles Smith and James Priestley played some really good house music. good vibes-would go again
  4. Which festivals will sell out quicker next year?

    Beatherder As much as you want in the campsite, however they did try to restrict to 2 or 4 cans per journey in because of pressure from the council. It is only a small festival so problem going back to tent/camper for extras. I took a few plastic bottles of spirits each day with no bother but got stopped with a 10 pack of cider which I was genuinely trying to bring from my caravan for a friend who was arriving late to the campsite.

    Looked at Lost Village after it was mentioned on here, looks good and similar to our local festival Beatherder. Lincoln is easily doable for us but it is too close to a pre- booked holiday. Going to look at it again next year. Interested to hear how it goes
  6. Glasto 2017 from the eyes of a first timer

    Good read Nimrod - sounds like you enjoyed it! Age is only a number The 50 odd year old who came to his first festival with me said it was the best holiday he'd ever been on and wants to come again in two years if we are lucky enough to get tickets!
  7. BBC Music to run nationwide "Glastonbury replacement" in 2018.

    As a young teenager Love Parade in Leeds was buzzing. Introduction to dance music that has never left me
  8. First festival advice, not Glastonbury

    Cut your toe nails before the festival, seems obvious, forgot before the festival I attend last week and will suffer with a big toe injury that I am sure was related. Take a bin liner to sit on if it's muddy, take plenty of them- mucky wellies, rubbish, wet camping gear and to hand to neighbours. usually lots of room down the side/front when busy at the entrance. Explore and enjoy
  9. NYC Downlow

    Certainly clubs in the village that play dance music. Can't name them but many also play the cheesy crap
  10. NYC Downlow

    I went into NYC not to watch the LGBT in their club, I went in to listen to the music - in the same way our group went to the gay centred clubs in Manchester's village early 2000's because they hosted the best hardhouse music. I hope people didnt go in to take the piss. The queues were a joke though. A green friend asked to go in the dark room, had to explain what could be happening in there, he said he didnt believe what he had read about the going ons in the Berlin clubs...I assured him it was true.
  11. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    Just had a look at today's Daily Mail whilst having some food. Hard left this, hard left that - you feel their pain at Thatcher's statue being put on the back burner. It is refreshing to see the left of centre views on display at Glastonbury.
  12. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    I disappinted with the Tory bashing, very little in Shangri La, good effort in block 9. Didn't see any Thatcher is still a... T shirts The Corbyn chant got slightly annoying but we have to listen to the right from all angles very day
  13. Electronica/Dance

    I think I know where you mean. Where the moustache queue runs alongside it. When i walked into NYC I did think the open seated room to left didn't take as much space as the building outside. thanks again
  14. Trailer Tents in Camper Van fields?

    I have taken a trailer tent in the campervan fields. Ours had two small doubles, two bench seats next to the beds, extra storage and a massive awning, possibly 1 and half times the bed area. It has a sink and cooker that pulls out. it is a step up from tents but the toilet in a caravan/motorhome obviously trumps it. Our caravan cost £300 p/a to store, the trailer fits on a small drive. The trailer is a doddle to tow and very easy to put up - the awning not so because its size! The folding caravans look interesting. We will have both at a festival next weekend and probably use the awning on the trailer as communal area compared to the caravan awning.

    So near the cut through to the common, to the right of the Genosys? Cheers
