  1. Worthy View Review

    It was our first ever time at Glasto and we stayed at Worthy View, thought it may be useful to give some feedback on it for those considering it in future. However, apologies in advance for the length of the review, thought I would try and give as much detail as possible for people considering it in future. We had stayed in Bristol the night before and left Bristol about 08:30 on Wednesday morning, we arrived at Worthy View by 10am and didn't have any issues with traffic at all, which surprised us. We just followed the directions issued by Worthy View. On arrival the car park was still fairly empty and we were parked about 50m from the entrance. I would say the maximum distance people were parked when the car park was full would be about 300m from the entrance. There was no queue to get into the site itself where tickets were checked and taken off us, you can't get them back to keep :-(, and we were issued with our wristbands. Once this was done it was just a case of going to coloured check in assigned to you, where we waited a max 5 minutes before we were shown to our bell tent. There were also people on hand with wheelbarrows to help move your kit, but as you are so near the car park its really easy to make more than one trip to your car. We were in one of the furthest bell tents and this was less than 5 mins from the entrance. I would say regardless of where your tent you are no more than 10 minutes from the entrance. The bell tent we had was fantastic and kept nice and cool in the day and did not leak in the rain. There was space between the next tents so you could sit outside your tent for a drink and most people tended to do this and especially on a morning having a cup of tea. The space between the scout tents was slightly smaller but still ok, although you probably wouldn't get chairs outside these easily. There is a great aerial shot of Worthy View on the Independant website, but I am not sure how to post pictures. If you have booked a yurt be careful, as some of the yurts were not yurts but squirts which are about half the height of a yurt, yet this was not shown on the list of available options on the Worthy View website, naughty! The length of the entire camp was about 1/2 mile from one end to the other. All tents of the same type were grouped together, with the largest amount being the various size scout tents, which did look good. There were portaloos in various locations which were regularly cleaned and were generally looked after by the previous users. Toilets were stocked with toilet roll and hand sanitiser. Depending on tent location you may have to walk a few minutes to your nearest set of loos. Queues at peak would be max 10 minutes, although additional portaloos did arrive on Sunday, shame it wasn't earlier. There were some trailers with proper flushing toilets in them near the main farm house which were fully lit, so ideal at night, and did have sinks with running water, although queues for these were much longer. The showers were also located towards the bottom of the site near the flushing toilets. The showers were open from 7am until midnight everyday and were separated into male and female. There is a communal changing room then the showers are In what look like trailers which are communal type but with plastic shower curtains between them. In the male showers there were 2 trailers with about 12 showers in each and the Mrs advised me there were 3 trailers in the female one. Showers were clean and warm and was great to refresh on a morning. Next to the showers there was also a pamper room with straighteners hair dryers etc, but not sure of cost as we didn't use these. Longest we waited for a shower was 10 mins at peak time in the morning. There were also a number of sinks and water points scattered around the site. On site there was a little shop for essentials, a camping supplies shops and a few food / drink places. At the bottom end of the site, on the way down to the festival there was also a bar, and a number of food / drink outlets. These were busy on a morning and queues would generally be about 20 mins to get breakfast or a posh coffee. Now the downside, there is a steep hill down towards the festival. This isn't too bad on a morning going down to the festival but at 2am in the morning going back up is a killer! There are concreted steps for half of it and hand rails but it is steep, however the hill is worth it for the facilities at Worthy View. When getting to ring of steel (near strummer ville) there was also never a queue to get in , where they would just check your wristbands, One of the things we thought was great at WV was it was generally quiet so you could get some sleep on a night. It was also great that people had respect for the camp and kept it clean and tidy, we rarely saw any rubbish on the floor and on the last day you could see the tents had been emptied and people had cleared up after themselves, which seems the opposite of some of the main camp sites. With regards to security we had no problems with leaving stuff in our tent, there were a number of security towers around the site and regular security patrols. The site itself also has its own ring of steel and to get in you need to have a wristband which they do check. We left about noon on Monday and it was easy to get out of the site, although we did get caught in the other festival traffic once on the main roads. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone, we will be trying to stay here next year, if we get tickets. Would be happy to stay in any of the tents on the site as the convenience plus luxury of showers is well worth it. If anyone has any questions, let me know.
  2. Boomtown Fair 2017

    We have never been to Boomtown Fair before but the tickets go on sale for 2017 this evening. I have been looking on the site and been unable to find out if the tickets for the camper van on sale at the same time as the main tickets or if these are sold later. Also, has anyone ever stayed in the campervan field at Boomtown before? If so what's it like, although we will be taking a caravan rather than a camper van.

(Won't let me upload a profile pic from my phone, but I'm happy to swap Facebook/Instagram/whatsapp if you feel like you'd like to get to know me first!)

  17. Hi there, as this year there are so many people attending all by thereselves i want to introduce you to our Creamfields Camping Group called "CampSheen": Originally this group was founded HERE on efestivals in 2010 by some guys, like you, who came alone and were looking for camping buddies. My own story is, that i wanted to go to creamfields for a veryy long time. But i live in germany and didn't know anybody in the whole uk and none of my friends here wanted to join me; so in august 2012 i was looking for camping buddies. I searched everywhere and finally i got here to eFestivals, somebody told me that there is a group at creamfields who calls themselves "camp sheen". So i got in contact which those guys, bought flight & festivalticket next day and what more should i say that this year it's my sixth time in a row <3. We have even meet for other festivals like Wearefestival, Sonar Barcelona or Steelyard London in anticipation for next creamfields We are a group of about 10-20 people. We are e.g. from England, Scotland, Wales, Germany & Spain. We are of different ages, but mostly in the middle to late twentys cuz we are creamfields veterans . There are always some younger sheeners (thats how we call us ). Every age is welcome here. We do have some rules here. Mainly is to respect every person in the camp. We do decorate our campsite with all kind of stuff we made by ourselves. Do respect what we brought here to make this weekend as remarkable as possible. A quote from our unwritten rules says : "No neds/ chavs / scallies / top-knot shufflec**ts / ket wizards" If you can deal with that, you are welcome here! You can find us in Standard Camping, last year we were in Red Camping. Some of us are attending on Thursday as early as possible to find a good spot. If you arrive on thursday come asap to help us to set up Look out for the yellow smiley flag with #campsheen print. If we got the flagpole in, it should be as 4.5m high Get in contact with us via facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/317548248334049/ my fb https://www.facebook.com/mimamatze And follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/campsheen/ Or just https://goo.gl/9zGykJ Have a great creamfields! If you don't camp with us, feel free for a visit while the arena is closed. As you might know there is also a "Creamfields Solo" Group on FB

  23. Download festival quiet camping

    Me and my friend are going to download festival this year and we have quiet camping, I read about it online but only realised it says that it has a curfew, is this curfew for playing Music or making noise or is it that u have to be in quiet camping by a certain time, for example the curfew was 12, would you have to be at your tent by 12 or is it just the noise and music thing and you can stay out for a longer time and go back to your tent whenever??
  24. Worthy View

    Hi! I really want to stay in Worthy View but missed the sale and keep looking but never see any tents come up on the see tickets worthy view site! Any advise on when I can expect to see a resale, so do you think I should plan for elsewhere. If I can't get Worthy View does anyone have any Glamping recommendations? I'm fine with camping but my boyfriend is a bit of a clean freak and wants hot showers, a slightly nicer loo and some security. Any advise would be muchos appreciated!!!
  25. I'm planning on going to Balaton Sound with a friend, and was curious if anyone had any experience with their beach camping? Some of the festivals I've been to, i.e. Roskilde, camping was absolutely amazing, an essential part of the festival itself. Others, i.e. Tomorrowland, it was very "secondary" and quite uncomfortable, thus easily skipped. We're debating if we want to camp at Balaton or just rent a room/apartment in Zamardi, so if anyone's experienced this festival before, I'd love any feedback you can offer. For example: What was camping like? From a social perspective, comfort, etc? Would you do it that way again? While a room would obviously be more "comfortable," we're just not sure if we'd be missing out on a great part of the event by doing it that way. Thanks in advance!
