  1. You’ll be fine with an awning, just tell the stewards when they direct you in and they’ll make sure you have enough space
  2. Looking pretty decent isn’t it? Some forecasts even have Sunday as dry
  3. Didn’t know you were going again this year Guy, I’ll keep an eye out for you old son good luck with the journey
  4. Yeah, I don’t think they announce stage times until you get (buy?) a guide on the way in. Like @spgsays though, you’re probably ok to use the times from last year, and insert this years acts.

    BBC Coverage 2022

    Pyramid was definitely live in UHD, it looked amazing. Not sure other stages were? I don’t think it ever got on iPlayer in UHD, only live
  7. I know what you mean. This is the only clash I’ll be running between, other than that, I’ll just go with the flow. Going with a fairly big group this year so there’s bound to be some of my gang wherever I end up!
  8. You should be able to see both, with just a 15 min overlap. If they stick to the timings of the last few festivals, the main stage headliner is 21.45-23.00 and the big top headliner is 22.45-00.00. so get on the right side of the crowd for Flogging Molly and then leg it to Beth, sorted. I’ll be doing exactly that! Will decide on the night which 15 mins to miss

    Impossible. You be you. Lotta love for you here. Including from me, and despite a couple of near misses, we’ve never met!
  10. Same here mate. I’m 50 and a lot of my mates think I’m mental to camp at festivals rather than glamp, or to go at all! My response is that I ain’t dead yet so I’m getting on with it! Got Chagstock next weekend (small but great festival) then Beautiful Days coming up.

    I absolutely love Idles, but I really can’t see them headlining the pyramid. Could see them headlining the other, but JP headliner slot would be great for them I think.
  12. I wouldn’t worry about the toilets. As has been said in the toilets thread, the festival is actually known for it’s clean and well maintained toilets and last year was a blip. I’ve been several times, including last year, and can confirm this. As for the festival itself, it’s a great place for family and kids, plenty for them to do and get involved with. It has a really chilled feel about it, there’s no arena, once you’re in, you’re in, just like the big G and you can bring your own booze to drink anywhere on site. Personally the line up this year is great, if it’s up your street, go for it. Don’t be put off by the toilet situation last year.
  13. An Idles pit is a beautiful place

    I've been a few times before as well so I'm confident you missed the word 'not' in your opening sentence! 😀
  15. Yeah, looking forward to this year, decent line up

    Second Helping

    Came here to say the same. Great set, amazing energy, would be very surprised if he doesn’t get a big slot next time round.
  17. Thanks mate, I did find it on YouTube. A joyous moment!
  18. Fuck You missing from O-Rod too

  20. You’re the youngsters in my 50 year old eyes!
  21. This was really obvious from the high angle tv shots over the weekend. Break through the crowd crust and there was loads of room. Just look at Skunk Anansie’s set as an example
  22. Some people don’t deserve their ticket!

    Special Guests

    You should catch up with it. BBC have cut it from their footage but it’s on YouTube. A great moment & very appropriate song!
