  1. After a bit of advice, after getting tickets for next year and if the weather gods are kind we are contemplating bringing our 4 year old for a couple of days (Wed-Thurs) before off loading with grandparents once the festival gets into full swing. My query is where is the best place to advise grandparents to go to meet up with us and collect said child?

    The Good People

    The lovely Irish guy in a tie dye t-shirt who gave me a can of thatcher's just before Justice started. Hope it blew his ears off as he was hoping for.
  3. I live around this area and the diversion in place is along the A38 through Bromsgrove and Droitwich. My experience over the past 12 months of these night diversions would be to expect to add around 30 minutes extra to the journey between these junctions during those hours. The traffic has always been flowing an no massive hold ups.
  4. I think the approach in regards to the cars/campervans/caravans will be similar to what I have been through at boomtown previously. Basically the vehicles are held in bulk in a large holding area (similar to the ferries). Explosives dog checks will be tier 1 screening (undertaken by the police/armed services) next will be the festival security checks (glass & sharps searching). I would expect then further random/profiled searching on entry through any pedestrian gate.

    Baby transport

    we did a smaller festival last year with our little boy who was 10 months then. We too used a bike trailer (with the front wheel in place) it was brilliant, What i did do though is put a board across the front of it (cable tied in place) this stopped him from climbing out whilst on the move. It also had enough room to load with pillows and blankets to make a bed from him to get his head down when he was tired. There was also enough room to carry all the "baby paraphernalia" that is required.
  7. My wife was 7 months pregnant when we went in 2015 and had a fantastic time. We hired a caravan so had our own toilet and shower which made it much easier for her during the night and in the mornings. The 4 things that made it much easier for her once inside the festival was:- 1) Shepee 2) We bought Helinox folding chairs - So light weight and fold down into the size of a football boot bag so fit into any backpack so cost about £70 3) Decent set of walking boots and walking poles (used when it got a little bit muddy & slippery) 4) Carrying flap jacks or cereal bars as their energy levels will just drop suddenly and these are great. Dont expect to be hitting the late night areas til the early hours. We did see all the headline acts but then just had steady walks back. Oh and expect to eat lots. We tended to stay on the edges on the larger stages, However we had more room to dance about. We were in a group of 6 and the other 4 were all fine with it. The one guy was flat out (high all weekend) and wife completely sober and they got on great it was funny to see two people at polar ends of the spectrum.

    WOW they are sounding strong - I will be gutted if their not there in June. My whole bargaining piece to my wife to go this year (without her for the first time, she is in the middle of exams) was based on the Daft Punk rumour/possibility from this message board. Then when these popped up as a strong possibility it took the sting out of the disappointment ive felt every year with the daft punk rumours. I just hope there is not a Justice vs Avalanches clash that would be catastrophic!!!
