I went to this a couple of years ago when it was Foals (i think) who played. 

I was already planning to be in the area and hadn't been to the festival that year so it was a lovely much needed Glasto fix.. wish I could go again in September...

I loved that Foals set, but friends weren't that impressed for some reason. Philisitines!

I can't really remember too much of the set but I remember just the general feel of the place was great and I think the weather was good too : )

I've been going on and off for quite some time and have seen PP grow and grow, all be it very gradually. 

As we all know, there have been rumours of an alternative to Glastonbury elsewhere in the fallow year, that could be a trial run for something else.

 EE is an events promoter not a farmer

This year, invoices (definitely some, if not all) had to be made out to Glastonbury Events

LTD) rather than GFL.

I might be putting two and two together and making six.....

I love Pilton Party but am sad at how it has changed.  I know things change but it was so like the festival years back when it was in the football field.  Now it feels like it's getting too big for its boots.  Perhaps I'm old fashioned but I want it back as it was!!!!!

I agree with this wholeheartedly it's got very popular since Jo Whiley intervention. I was actually shocked at the length of the queue outside the ticket office on Saturday. They definitely sold well over 1000 on Saturday I would guess closer to 2000 I don't know what the capacity is for PP but there wouldn't have been too many left over

it's got to be at least 8k, surely, from the size of tent they use & crowd they have.

It's 5000

I had that figure in my head but that was from about 5 years ago so I'm unsure if capacity has been increased

Does anyone know of camping within walking distance of Pilton Party? Ashcombe farm is full.

This one doesn't appear to be too far a walk from Pilton. I know nothing of the Pilton Party though so don't know where exactly it's being held.

I've been invited by a friend who's local.

Where abouts on the festival site is it held? Being from the North I probably won't get a better chance to walk round when the actual festival isn't on so hoping to get on the site on the Saturday..

I think it's in the same field as where the John Peel tent was this year.

Although it may be different depending on how the ground has recovered I guess?

Oh I thought they left the JP tent up since the festival for some reason.

Sadly, from that photo alone I can tell that it's a different tent to the JP/
