  1. Love Fields pitch your own

    Being able to camp next to your car and the extra non essentials which you would be able to bring would be a big plus IMO. Solar shower, proper camping bed etc... But not for £400. I'm surprised that the festival haven't clocked this themselves and allocated a field for it, which they could of course charge extra for. £100 for car and tent? I'm in.
  2. quechua Fresh and black tents

    Yup, worked much better than I was expecting. My tent was always cool even when I popped back there mid afternoon. It was dark enough in the day time to need a torch if the door was shut. They just need to make a sound proof next

  4. Peeing on the land - festival not doing enough

    Can't comment on the campervan fields bit but the rest is a big exaggeration isn't it?
  5. Electric Vehicle Charging

    For anyone reading this thread next year, the facilities are great! You need to bring your 3 pin charger with you (which thankfully I did, although I almost didn't). Knowing what I know now I'd say you're fine to rely on them working. I didn't know if this is official policy or not (I didn't want to question it) but I didn't have to buy a car parking ticket. Assuming it is policy I think it's great that the festival is incentivising low / zero carbon travel
  6. Weather 2017

    I'll take that thank you very much
  7. Electric Vehicle Charging

    Thanks. Unless I get confirmation from someone with experience of them that says i'm ok to 100% rely on the ones on site i'll be making a slight de-tour to the Ecotricity rapids at Sedgemoore services. 68 mile round trip from there to the festival and back again which I could almost (but not quite) do twice. What happens to the battery if I get stuck in 8 hours of traffic is a bit of an unknown at this stage too, I suspect very little but I think it's best to err on the side of caution...
  8. Electric Vehicle Charging

    Yeah I've seen that, just wondering if this is going to work in practice. I.e. Am I safe to show up without enough juice to get me to a charger off site.
  9. Electric Vehicle Charging

    I see that there are charging points run by the AA in the carpark, does anyone have any experience with them? What I really want to know is can I absolutely rely on them?
  10. Corbin Really !!

    Why don't you write a letter to Mr Eavis to tell him how he can tailor the festival for your exact tastes?
  11. Secret resales

    I said this a few days ago and nobody acknowledged, but it remains true - Assuming that you have CheckPage, spending 8 hours a day in front of your computer offers hardly any benefit over just keeping a close eye on your phone - as long as your phone has a reasonable internet connection. People are getting stressed and saying that they can't do this any longer. It's not worth it. Take a step back and just make sure your phone is in earshot and isn't on silent.
  12. Secret resales

    Seeing people are getting a bit stressed! I'm not trying to discourage anyone but if you've get the page checker setup and you've got WiFi / 4G on your phone, being next to a computer isn't going to speed up your getting tickets all that much. Setup the keyboard shortcuts for your details and actually I don't think it will make any difference at all. So basically as long as your phone is on, has signal and is in ear shot - chill out people
  13. Secret resales

    5 alerts in 6 minutes! As this keeps happening could something be put in place to stop the flurries? like an if statement that checks how long it has been since the last alert was sent and if it's less than say 10 minutes it doesn't send it out?
  14. Dolly Parton MIming?

    Who cares? She's 68, there's no way she could have that sort of energy on stage and sing at the same time. When I turned round to look at the crowd at the end of 9-5 I've literally never seen so many grinning faces - what could be more important than that?
  15. Vaping

    To be honest, your best chance of getting something that's going to produce enough vapour and give you a strong enough throat hit to keep you off the rollies is to get something that doesn't look like a ciggy. Looking like a ciggy limits the battery size and that in turn limits the power that it can kick out to get the juice nice and hot. I've got a couple of these http://www.vapeescape.co.uk/joyetech-ego-c-1000mah-upgrade-battery~316 (You'll also need a charger - http://www.vapeescape.co.uk/ego%2Friva%2Fecho-usb-charger-with-cord-%28510%29~144) and I'm very happy with them. Been off the ciggies for well over a year now with zero temptation to go back :-) I'd also start off on high strength liquid - the throat hit comes from the nicotine so the more nicotine the more throat hit you'll get.
