    Whereabouts is the campsite now, I hear it has moved since I did it. In answer to the above we took a camper van into the Oxfam camp site a few years ago, was decent

    When I did bestival years ago they were understanding that my friend had to be with me as a nominated carer to support his mental health fwiw

    With Oxfam you also swap, so if you get a shift at the time of a headliner you really want to see there is a decent chance you can find someone to swap it so you miss a different headliner

    Thank you I feared as much. The build up is such a big part of it - i’d do pretty much anything to get that feeling when you know you are going!

    Don’t think here is a thread for his yet... Will be trying to do this for the first time since 2013 when I was with Oxfam. Waking around the empty site on tuesday and welcoming arrivals on a gate Wednesday morning are still two of my biggest highlights ever. Any tips, experience or recommendations? I’d rather not wait until Oxfam date if I can get anywhere/anything sorted now.

    I haven't done it since 2013 (Oxfam) but I'm going to this year. Wouldn't mind trying someone different - going to go through the 2019 thread but thought worthwhile starting a new one. I would recommend it. Walking around an empty site on the Tuesday and welcoming people on site on the Wednesday morning at open of the gates are two of biggest highlights ever...

  10. Aww thank you, would love the thought of them going to an fester (or friend of)
  11. Gutted but we can't go because my step-son is ill, so have two 4 day tickets and a parking permit for sale, just want to cover costs and sell securely. Based in the East Midlands... http://www.scarletmist.com/index.php/buy/listtickets/51865
  12. Really wish I had seen them start before Hot Chip, was worried about the HC crowd but really wouldn't have been an issue at all.
  13. I was home back in the hospital with ill step-son first thing Monday, back at work Tuesday including an interview for an internal promotion (which it doesn't look like I have got) received some mixed 360 feedback at work etc. etc. Reality has hit harder than ever before after Glasto this year and I only had beer. Reading what everyone has said on here has been really quite helpful and cathartic, thank you wonderful people of efests as always
  14. Yeah me too... though (because of poorly step-son) I only made it down from Friday at 8 to Sunday at 5. it means that each clash and decision is worse. Wish I had gone for the start of chemicals before hot chip now I know the latter were pretty quiet early on. Not really seeing Foals because of Lizzo...
  15. Did anyone get car directions with their parking permit? Email said they would be there but nothing was included. Mainly looking for if they give a postcode for sat nav and final directions at the end... please and thank you
