  1. Lateral flows only last 48hours for Latitude but 72hours for Leeds? In true government fashion, even Festival Republic are making it up as they go along
  2. So Leeds festival have just updated their covid-19 requirements, and it also mentions that lateral flows only last for 72hours, advising everyone to bring spare tests with them to the festival. I know a few on here suggest that theyre only needed for those leaving the site, but it certainly doesn't read like that to me? "If you are using an NHS Lateral Flow Test to demonstrate your COVID Status, this will remain valid for 72 hours from the time you took the test. You will then need to re-test on the expiry of the initial 72 hour period. DON’T FORGET TO BRING SPARE LATERAL FLOW TESTS WITH YOU FOR THE WEEKEND!"
  3. Good point! Never crossed my mind as the last place id want to camp at a festival is next to a young family. It does say that you wont be allowed in unless you have an under 16 with you, whether or not they police that though is a different matter.
  4. Yeah i initially thought the same, but then surely they alter the designated camping sections based on the amount of tickets sold? Which would indicate however a lot more families have bought tickets than a few on this forum had suggested?
  5. Nope, all I’m getting is this
  6. Mines just showing stages next the A12 and A145 roads? The one on the coop section looks more promising, but that sends me back to a google road map as well…?
  7. Tickets are on sale?!? Where have you seen this? Just seen, shame its the weekend before Glastonbury which means im out 😞
  8. I got a reply on Instagram saying they’re aiming for 9,000 capacity (both public and crew)
  9. Anybody aware of any big outdoor screens for the semis or final? Im sure i read somewhere that there was one outside Wembley stadium as well?
  10. Yeah i've personally lost about £50 just in booking fees this year where it wasn't reasonable for me to carry over tickets, so i cant blame them for holding back. It was hard enough to convince a few mates that Latitude was going ahead even after it was chosen as a pilot event. Must admit, if i hadn't of been at BigFoot festival last weekend i dont think i would have been as optimistic as i am now! But yeah, £220 with no idea of the calibre of acts Boomtown are going to book is a big ask. No doubt itll sell out eventually.
  11. Was planning on it but the few friends id rounded up all bailed last minute. A few have booked Y-not but said they'll commit once it officially cancels. Thankfully there's still tickets left but not sure how much longer they'll be available....
  12. Got myself a coach package with BigGreen Coaches to save the absolute ball-ache of travelling from Manchester. Just had a look on the Latitude website and it says that those travelling with BigGreen coaches get dropped off 'inside the gates'? Now i know those travelling via coach usually have their own shorter queue, but being dropped off inside the gate surely isn't right? If it is then i may even chance my luck and see if they'll drop me off at my chosen camping spot!
  13. This is my thinking. My usual interest in Latitude goes no further than checking the lineup out, but with options to party limited this summer i've ended up booking with a friend! Must admit theres a lot more on the lineup than i originally expected from a Latitude lineup. As long as theres a few late night areas i'm sure ill be more than satisfied with whats on offer!
  14. What exactly didnt you like about it? Reluctant to buy a ticket for a festival that id never normally consider, but under the circumstances i think ive got take whatever i can get
  15. Good thing about Latitude is that big green coaches are doing return buses from Manchester so thats that issue dealt with. Part of me feels that the crowd this year may be slightly different at most festivals, with the majority of people attending because they're getting their festival fix over usual return attendees.... Ill see what my group is saying today. The Latitude lineup is certainly a lot easier to sell!
  16. Thanks. After something a little bit more lively but the pool of options is diminishing by the second... May hold on for another week or so to hear a little more about Boomtowns event or Standon Calling before committing.
  17. Looks like I’ll take a punt if it is a test event. Anybody who’s been tell me what to expect? Much going on late night? Family orientated or people there for a party?
  18. Even though there’s already a dedicated family area of Boomtown, I seriously cannot imagine any event that Boomtown puts on being predominantly “family friendly”. They’ve announced the forest parties and village centre will be there which is enough for me! Hoping a few users from here who seem to be in the know can provide a bit more information?
  19. Posted this in the Boomtown thread but just incase anyone else hasn't seen; Boomtown is putting on a smaller festival this year named 'Boom Village' taking place over the usual Boomtown weekend. It was originally going to be held for locals only and at a capacity of just 4000. However, i've just been reading through the FAQs and had a look on their socials, and it appears they are now opening this up to the general public as they're confident all restrictions will be dropped in time! " I thought this was a local event, why have you opened it up for anyone to buy tickets? We initially launched Boom Village as a locals only event when it was still unclear as to whether we would be moving into Stage 4 of the government Road Map. However, it is now looking increasingly likely that by the time of the festival we will be in Stage 4 and most restrictions will be lifted, however we still plan to keep the festival small and intimate but just open it up a little wider. After offering those who live nearest to the festival site the opportunity to buy the discounted tickets first and a month to purchase them before opening up wider, as of Monday 28th June the tickets will go on general release. At the heart of it, Boom Village is still going to be strongly focussed on the local area with Trinity Winchester as our main charity partner, as well as partnerships with Winchester Uni, outreach to local families and local entertainment offerings. We are in discussion with many local traders, crafts people and much more to ensure that it absolutely is a local, family friendly, small and intimate festival"
  20. Just seen this on the Boomtown website in regards to BoomVillage "I thought this was a local event, why have you opened it up for anyone to buy tickets? We initially launched Boom Village as a locals only event when it was still unclear as to whether we would be moving into Stage 4 of the government Road Map. However, it is now looking increasingly likely that by the time of the festival we will be in Stage 4 and most restrictions will be lifted, however we still plan to keep the festival small and intimate but just open it up a little wider.

  21. Yeah my mates been pinged, with the remaining isolation time suggesting Sunday. Strange as well as we all stuck together on the final day yet he's the only one who's been notified? Also, my friends just said he's seen a few people on the Bigfoot facebook group saying they've all been contacted!
  22. Any reason why this hasn't cancelled yet? Could this possibly be one of the next round of pilot events? This is my final hope for a festival in July...
  23. Well that was absolutely incredible! All expectations were blown away - no masks, no distancing and an all round friendly crowd. We had some serious reservations last week but thankfully none came for fruition. Ive been trying to explain to friends back home what it was like / similar to and i honestly cant say. Also got the impression that quite a lot of people were there primarily as an an excuse to party, as oppose to wanting to be at a craft beer festival? Anyway, here's hoping that next years festival is brought forward a weekend so it doesn't directly precede Glastonbury. Sitting here working from home with a huge smile on my face, knowing that i haven't lost my love for festivals and partying all weekend in the rain.
  24. Just had my negative result back from my covid test! Must admit i was a little nervous after the scenes in the pub on Sunday watching England!
  25. As in cans? Where have you seen this?
