    Managed to get some lucky dips for Stones. Chuffed to bits. This I'll leave LCD for now as it costs a fair bit for the travel etc to London

    Rolling Stones

    Checked again and there were some available without the split warning. Buzzing round the office today

    Thanks There's only chances of spilt tickets? Has anyone gone for this already? If so where you sat together?

    All Points East Festival 2018

    This. They basically have to have your permission to search you in that detail. If you don't give you permission they can refuse you entry. It's the same as searching bags going into events etc. They can't force search you but they can make it mandatory for entry.

    Yeah, it's just the travel and the booze that makes it add up. I'm thinking Stones especially could be done on the cheap if I can find someone else interested.

    At the moment I don't have tickets for either Rolling Stones next week or LCD Soundsytem at APE on Friday. I know I shouldn't be going to them through saving cash and leave but dammit I want both so much.

    Boomtown 2018

    I bought a bog standard weekend ticket a few months back and now want to add a shuttle to/from the train station. I might be being thick but can't see one on the website unless it includes a Weds entry. Does anyone know if they are available or if you can get them on the day? EDIT: Sorry found this right after clicking post: I'll leave it here just in case it's helpful for anyone.

    Why don't they let this many people in any more?

    Have the festival tried to expand and had planning turned down by the Government recently? Feels a bit easy and lazy to blame them. Even if that was the case deaths alone is a ludicrous metric to base the success of an event by. It wouldn't take much searching to read about a few festivals that have failed spectacularly due to lack of planning and infrastructure to support the crowds.

    Boomtown 2018

    I'm not really knocking it from a organisation point of view, more as a punter. I doubt I'd be able to go anyway but hope it will help sort out some of the entrance shit storm from last year. They were trying to play it off as a 'people won't be missing out on much if you turn up on Thursday card' so I assumed it'd be like Reading back in the day where there were only a few burger vans open and you only paid an extra tenner. That said it's been over a decade since I did that so it'd probably be a similar price range now. Sounds like it's all moving in the right direction, I'm sure next year they can be a bit more pro active and less reactive and all will make more sense. Glad to hear about the sound, do you know any more details? Is it just for the Weds or extra volume/time over the weekend?

    £40 for Wednesday entry seems a bit steep?

    I appreciate this is a bit late for Simon but for anyone else wanting tickets with less risk might want to check out: https://www.theticketsellers.co.uk/tickets/boomtown-2018-resale-registration/10046317 Obviously will still be quite a scrum to get them on the day.
