  1. What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    We're doing Bluedot again this year and venturing to Bearded Theory for the 1st time, as been wanting to go to that for years Small local festival called Cotton Clouds also lined up, quite looking forward to small festivals only tbh
  2. Blue Dot Festival

    Yeah remember the Transmission gigs as saw New Order there.... so when Bluedot was born a few years ago was definitely excited as the venue is amazing
  3. Blue Dot Festival

    I’m actually quite pleased with that initial lineup, can’t wait to see Flaming Lips in that setting
  4. Bearded Theory 2018

    I would be made up if The Sisters of Mercy played
  5. Got any gigs coming up?

    Did anyone go to see Sigur Ros over the weekend at Manchester? Saw them for the 1st time on Sunday and it was absolutely beautiful!! can't believe I'm so late to the Sigur Ros train tbh... No gigs until November now, which are The Moonlandingz and Royal Blood
  6. Neighbourhood Festival, Manchester

    Is there going to be any more additions? Venue splits were quite late last year but as long as you get them before the day it shouldn't be an issue, they gave out a free flyer when you picked the wristbands with all the stage time last year and I'm sure it was the week before on the website
  7. Bearded Theory 2018

    Bought ticket today on payment plan, finally getting round to going
  8. Which festivals will sell out quicker next year?

    You are not supposed to bring booze through but soft drinks and food okay... checks were lax though agreed but that's fine by me
  9. Neighbourhood Festival, Manchester

    it was great last year, total bargain for the price... definitely look to go again this year
  10. Hope and Glory Festival Liverpool

    What a pile of whinging drivel!!! they are getting crucified on social media for this pile of sh*t statement and rightly so!!
  11. Lack of facilities and end of Gate D hell

    This is not the case at all - My situation from parking up until getting through gates it was 5 1/2 hours - it was too long in the heat and it was hot (as it was across the site) and I got heat stroke despite taking precautions, which screwed me up for the rest of the day... but I'm not allowed to complain or anything am I? I am not blaming the festival however, this year they had 2 different Alton tower queue systems which was more than usual and it wasn't needed IMO, it just added more queue time (which was a killer in that heat). The stewards at the road as your crossed from pink also sent everyone up the hill to right saying that was for gate D rather than straight on, this then went up the hill and down again which joined the same queue at the bottom. Whether this was intentional (which it probably was) I don't know but it added another hour to your queue time There was also lack of steward about around the queue bet 9-12 - now I do think people should take responsibility, but if anything did happen there wasn't a lot of stewards to flag an issue up. We found a guy collapsed in the sun around 10.30-11am who had been left by his friends who had obviously on the beer, yes it was his fault for drinking but leaving someone in that state was not good and it took 8 people shouting over at a steward from the zig zag queue to come over (who was going to walk away) To me gate D was not as good at organisation as gate A (which always seems to be better) can't comment on B & C as never used them
  12. Lack of facilities and end of Gate D hell

    I mentioned it a few times as we do this every year I have to say gate D queue was awful as we joined queue in pink at 7am it was past 12 noon when we got through the gate.... I was dying and certainly suffered heat stroke despite wearing hat, Sun lotion and drinking loads of water (that we brought) I was give a bottle of water by steward as passed the start of the 1st Alton towers queue, but these were not obviously given out but I was bright red so probably pity taken lol The spraying folk down and handing water out certainly wasn't in D before 11am, as quoted in the press lol That 2nd Alton towers queue broke me as didn't realise there was a 2nd queue. Nearly burst into tears when going through that white arch/tent thing realising there is another 1-2 hours queue time Wednesday was ruined for me as trying to put tent up in 31 degree heat after 6 hours from car parking to tent spot was not fun. Seriously couldn't cool down until about 7...
  13. Blue Dot Festival

    Totally in spades!! What made me laugh we were talking to this obviously middle class couple on the Friday, wife was getting rather merry and husband had to drop the teen kids off back at the tent before coming back for his drink. He was like I'm not enjoying it as too middle class and not edgy, which we were like what did you really expect?? it was funny as he was the typical target audience - middle class family lol
  14. Blue Dot Festival

    It's like the lockups too, which close about 30 minutes after the headliner on Sunday!! which is no good for people in weekend camping as have to carry all your keys and stuff from lock up on the Sunday. Why can't they least have them open until Monday morning?
  15. Blue Dot Festival

    As per comment I posted from Bluedot they decided not to offer discount for pre sale, which is nuts tbh as most people will think what's the point and wait now I reckon I've bought tickets so I can spread the cost better and I do like it as a festival, but if it keeps going up year on year I'll most likely stop going
