    Camper van pass

    I think they're sold out... Not sure if they'll release more though. They're not cheap when they are available. Any private campsites local? Good luck!

    Liam - I can't disagree. Great band in their day. Inspirational. But showed such contempt for their fans.... their arrogance knows no bounds. And to some - this is what makes them great.

    V2009 Oasis were the headline act. Many fans would have bought tickets just to see Oasis. Some would have bought tickets to see Oasis as well as other bands, but Oasis would have been the main draw. For them not to turn up and perform (in spirit and physically) shows massive disrespect for the thousands who paid a lot of money to watch / listen to them. True professionals put their personal differences to one side in circumstances such as these. On that basis alone I won’t give either of them the time of day. I suspect they won’t be particularly concerned though….

    Liam - forums are about sharing opinions, sometimes contentious, often different, picking up hints and tips and for offering praise and criticism where necessary - and yes - this form of communication can sometimes be misinterpreted. I'm pleased you love the bill, and are excited to be going. For my part, I'll be excited to be going but at the moment don't love the line-up. I've been a few times to the island and we've seen some tremendous headliners and some surprisingly good supports - bands I wouldn't normally go to listen to but they were fantastic. I hope that this is the case this year. Neon - we've been for the last 5 years. We used to go to V as well - until this line-up went from indie to poptastic. I started this thread with this comment: 'Had another amazing time at IoW 2018 - just seemed to be over so quickly!' Hardly putting it down. Quite the opposite. From what I've read, people on this forum had high expectations for this year. And last year for that matter. I quite like last year. Apart from the killers who I consider are boring. I praised the lineup. This year, for me, is different. The undercard is the biggest draw. Headliners? George and Biffy will be ok but they're not major festival headliners. No thanks Noel. We saw the last Oasis gig ever. Utter garbage. Lily Allen? Please no. We'll go. We'll have a good time. Great time? Remains to be seen. It could have been worse. Much worse..... Spice Grrrls.... stop right now. Thank you very much.

    Indeed it is, and I know it's not. That's why I said 'I don't think so'.

    It'll be a great weekend and we're all set to go but........ Love the line-up? I don't think so. Seriously underwhelming.

    Yep. About a mile or so. Very pleasant it is too. On the fest bus route. Incredible breakfasts. Nice showers. Fluffy pillows.

    Booked the ferry, confirmed the hotel so it looks like we're going... Headliners are not the main draw though. Biffy should be ok. Not big fans of the others. Def not FBS. Bastille, Courteeners, James, Madness (this'll be a hoot), Miles Kane, Richard Ashcroft, The Coral, Tom Walker and Hacienda Classical Idles may be worth a watch. And for the Mrs - Jess Glynne, Rick (G)Astley (maybe), KT Tunstall I'm sure there'll be others to fill the space (between us all) One thing for sure - we won't be getting EB tickets again...

    I thought the IoW was abroad?

    A more local festival would mean no lost time from work - IoW is a good 8h from home to the hotel, because of the ferry. Hotel is a must - too old to tent it now. It'll happen to you... one day. Local fest would still be in the order of £900 - tickets / fuel / food / hotel / beer. It's a great weekend, very friendly, nice people, usually very good weather, all very pleasant. Would have liked a better line-up but hey-ho. I think I'll be booking the ferry this week... It's only money

    Tickets (2), ferry, hotel (3 nights, possibly 4 if we travel Thursday evening), fuel, crap festival food, crap festival beer, decent food and beer away from the fest, time off work (2 days) for two of us... Time off is the killer. Both self-employed

    Quite underwhelmed The whole weekend, tickets, transport, accom, food / beer, time off work (2 days) will cost over £2k for the two of us. Just not worth it. Needs serious consideration....

    Amazing such as who? AM are good but not amazing. Pink Floyd would, imho, tick that box.
