Tell me more! I missed last year, but going back this year. What do you do, bring along your beer and swap it for the sponsors beer? What beers did they have?

You've pitched your tent, you've got your best mates close by, you have an abundance of toilet paper and your fave band are about to come on stage, life simply can't get any better - and it's at that wonderful moment the terrible realisation hits you - your beer is warm.

Carling shares your pain. We know there is nothing worse than warm beer at a festival. At Carling we hate warm beer and this year we have decided not to tolerate it any longer - so we've declared war on warm beer. Carling will be operating a 'Cold Beer Amnesty'. This means Carling will replace any unopened can of warm beer with a cold can of Carling - free of charge!

surely that speil from carling is pish. how can you trade in your warm beer when your favourite bands about to come on stage, if you cant take your own alcohol into the arena.
