  1. I think £5 per ticket is the amount Brixton academy charge for venue hire. Four tet tickets are always £5 (+random fees) too. I wonder if St Albans Arena is more expensive so the tickets were more? I'd be surprised if it's that much more though. I got tickets via a non-internet person in the end
  2. Friday: Bo Ningen, Kate Tempest, Alabama 3, Fujiya & Miyagi, Goldie Saturday: Afriquoi, The Avalanches, Beans on Toast, Dead Kennedys, Factory Floor Sunday: Frank Carter, Dropkick Murphys, Dreadzone, Justice, Jamie XX Good idea btw.
  3. The bigger bands (Napalm Death/Dead Kennedys) have already been announced for the truth stage so maybe the whole venue will be inside the tube train? Assuming its a microvenue, two tube carriages wouldn't be that different to the size of that punk stage last year/the year before..
  4. If anyone has a code they aren't planning to use that you could PM to me that would be excellent.
  5. DC site services are still looking for people I think. Got an email from then the other day to say applications close on Weds 31st. They are good people to work for.
  6. It's wonderful.
  7. Personally I just take my phone, wallet and clashfinder then pop back to the tent after the headliners to get a jumper and some rum. I defo wouldn't want to carry a bag around all day.. Could you fit that stuff in a bumbag?
  8. I have conducted some further research on your behalf. They are these people: https://www.facebook.com/thegtpoutine/ I'm told they are between pyramid and other but I also know how much their pitch was and it seems far too cheap for that location so who knows really. I am apparently doing a pub quiz with half of them this evening so I'm going to find out all about how food catering works at glasto. Very exciting.
  9. It was a shame about la grande bouffe last year. I'm going to give them one last chance this year but I don't have high hopes. Some friends of friends run a poutine stand (canadian chips, cheese and gravy) that will apparently be at glasto for the first time this year. Might be good late at night possibly..
  10. I had one of these last year at two festivals and no one deflated it, though it would be easy to do so. I think most people have better things to do, especially at glasto.. I didn't think it was noticeably lighter and it was definitely bulkier with the inflatable tubes than a normal tent is. Makes sense when you think how big air beds are when they're packed away. You also need to carry a fairly bulky pump with you. I'd probably get a standard version if I was buying again and if they sold one with a porch, though having said that it is really nice to be able to put your tent up in a few seconds.
  11. You will be able to go to the electoral office at your council in person tomorrow and get a new one. You fill it out there and hand it straight back to them. I had to do this yesterday because mine didn't arrive and there were a few other people there doing the same. It'll be too late for you to register for a proxy vote now.
  12. Yeah £10 extra. They have to let people buy parking tickets on the gate or they'd have lots of people driving around with nowhere to go causing problems on the roads.
  13. Well done everyone who got a ticket, some serious commitment in this thread! For anyone who missed out, I got an email from DC site services today saying they still need people to work at the festival. I've worked 3 times and paid 3 times and I think honestly both are as good as each other as you get to see a different side of the festival and turn up two days early. With DC you do 8 hour shifts each day and get paid in addition to the free ticket. The jobs are more interesting than the charity ones available and if you choose to work in the campervan fields you usually get a day off if you want once everyone's arrived..
