It seems the weather is holding up just now but looks like this might fade away and disappear leading to a pretty stormy situation. On Saturday it's supposed to rain all day and looks like Sunday will be the same, lets hope its not half as bad as last year's Sunday!!!

Wellies...check. Waterproofs...check. I'm anticipating a repeat of 2000 & 2001 when it rained non-stop all weekend. Good job there's lots of good bands in the Transmission & T Break tents.

If anyone would be so kind as to keep this updated right through til tomorrow night if would be appreciated - leaving early Sat morning so any updates on weather and ground condition would be a boost.

I'm here just now. Not much rain yesterday, but a small bit this morning.

Currently dry.

Stopped going to T a few years ago but got free tickets this week. Look on here for some advice and the forum's gone. What caused that? Was it just general muppetry from posters (trying to sell tickets, abusive language etc) or has Ellis had it pulled for breaking agreements surrounding times etc?

Anyway looking reasonably dry for this afternoon - heading off in an hour.

Oh, you've gotta feel sorry for the folks who've parted with their cash only to be greeted with, well a washout.

Lets hope other major festivals in August are dry!

I think T might get off lightly compared to some. I've just seen some photos of Wakestock, here:-

As I'm organising the Wickham Festival in Hampshire from August 2nd to 5th I echo that!

I got seriously sunburnt at Off The Tracks, Shepley and the Acoustic Festival of GB one weekend in late May. Another sunny weekend would be very welcome!
