sounds like a plan ! the bairns a year older this year so im hoping they explore on their own a bit more, have you managed to get tickets in the pre xmas sale then or are you waiting till the early 2012 offer.
ours arrived last week and have been stashed in the cupboard for safe keeping !
Didn't get any early bird tickets cos we're not sure yet how many we want, and I'm still trying convince a 48 year old festival virgin mate who is the only other Biscuits/Fall/Smiths/Factory fan in the WF8 postcode that its not all rain and blocked toilets.
Must admit I'm a bit twitchy about not having tickets yet, but we need Emperors Field for the extra elbow room, so no doubt I'm have a nervy morning on the internet at the beginning of February.
Just to chuck another couple of bands into the speculation hat, Belle and Sebastian (saw them earlier this year and they were top drawer) and The Wedding Present. B&S nowadays don't tour too much, but if the timing is right they are about the right size. The Weddoes might not be in the spotlight too much anymore, but I love 'em, they've an impressive back catalogue and they have done a lot of the northern festivals over the years
