:lol: Reckon I'll be the one that's pretty fucked by the regular climb out of the bowl by the Monday given that I'm 44 and the average age of Boomtown punters is, what, 24 or something like that?

YAH BOO SUCKS

No it's kinda true. I'll be 41 :( there are a load of younger efesters though, maybe less vocal on the boards but they read it still and a few of them turned up last year, we're far from all old gits.

The average age at Boomtown seems to have gone up a lot, nearer 30 now I think

Met Office Latest:

The overall picture across the UK showed July was a wet month, receiving 22% more than the July average rainfall. Northern Ireland experienced the most rainfall with 113.1mm, 39% above its monthly average.

Hampshire received 118% more than its average rainfall for the month.

This summer’s changeable weather looks likely to last into the weekend with showers or longer spells of rain mixed with drier weather and some sunshine, the Met Office said.

Next week high pressure is likely to build from the south and should bring more settled, drier weather, although there may still be some showers at times, particularly for northern parts of the UK.

 

Here's hoping....

I intend on heading to the meet up, I briefly met @deebeedoobee at the Glasto meet up (you kindly allocated me a sticker but I didn't want to intrude on your conversations too much) so hopefully I'll be able to locate you all!

First Boom for me so will be nice to share excitement with some newbies and some more experienced efesters

Hey. I just posted on another page about going to the festival alone (thanks Paul for your reply). Looks like this page is a bit more lively so thought I'd say hi. :)

This will be my first Boomtown and my first time going alone to a festival so I'm a bit nervous but mostly really excited! I'll definitely come to the meet-up but was also wondering if I could join a camping group too? I'm a nice lass from the North East and I come with my own tent and booze. :D

This pretty much sums up my feelings about this year - with that and what appears to be a much deeper commitment to the already fab street theatre/theming/alternate reality playing stuff I'm bracing for some more moments of genuine hysterics at the madness of it all.

Dare I say it the weather looks like it'll be good too

Hello! 

My first one too so I'm not sure where we're camping but we're going with a friend and their friends as guides! 

Have you tired the Facebook page for camping groups? Sorry I can't offer more than that really as I'm not sure what I'm doing!!!

It`s only a number and from what i remember of you Dee you was full of love and life and would give most of us/them whippersnappers a run for our/their money in anything we/they do (i`m 36, don`t feel a day over 21).

 

Cannot wait!

Ah no that's fine; feels a bit weird asking if I can tag along with people. Haha. Thanks for the tip on the FB group. I might just put a shout out up there too. :)

Don't feel weird!! Efests is a great community, get stuck in and ask away! :) You might find a group of solo campers that can all meet up, you never know!

Last year's weather was awesome. If only we could have that again this year.

i live by the saying "you have to grow old, you don't have to grow up"

although a few years ago when Boomtown had a very young demographic they thought I was either a dealer or undercover copper. Had a great time winding up the yuof
