    Flag poles are fine in camping, been loads in last few years. They've had the no flagpoles in the music areas for a few years now.

    Electro love is the big rectangle just passed British Airways (same side) if you're walking towards main arena Quote Edit

    I've signed up for Liftshare which apparently will get me parking closer to gates. I'm basically giving a friend a lift and so he signed up for it and we paired up via the Liftshare link giving me free voucher to show at parking entrance to get the closer parking. Easy.

    Any ideas what type of music is playing in this area, I don't know the artists. It's says Smirnoff House but is it House / dance?

    We're travelling from Christchurch, just down the road from you. On the Saturday (gold theme day) if you see a man in robot leggings, Upper torso sprayed gold, wearing a top hat come and say hi. Have a great time.

    No, generally loads of space apart from in main arena. Bars in main arena have queues but other bars in other more minor stages easy to get served, we spent most time away from main stage in random areas. it's nothing like the size of Glastonbury. camp site to main stage 20min walk, and you're not pushing through people, unless you wanna get to stage front.

    That's fine, always been loads of flags in camping area. They just don't want them in front of the stages.

    They sell most drinks, there are loads of bars away from the main arena giving good choice

    Whether you consider the drinks expensive depends where you come from in the country . Pints were £4.20, cocktails £5-£8 last year. Pretty normal from where I travel from (Dorset) . I normally sneak in my own clear spirits through security in a 500ml water bottles (part of the fun) , soft drinks around £2.50 for standard 500ml bottle. Sometimes I wish I did drugs, far cheaper over a whole weekend.

    Giving us the stage times would be good. We'll just have to wait. Never really been keen on this stage in the past but this line up looks great this year. so many potential clashes in my head already, think I'll just be winging it on each day as usual rather than over planning it.

    Great breakdown there Havors. I'm not familiar with some of the groups so good to get a bit of a heads up on how good live they are. I've told the Mrs to have Mr Brightside close my funeral, think that song will be one of the moments I manage to remember from the festival, there won't be many (that's booze related, not quality of groups)

    Yes. Nothing starts on main stage until around lunchtime or a bit later even so you'll not miss any of main groups.

    Still all a bit middle of the road for me, although good groups to sing along too not enough mix of music . I mean I like Travis but it's album music. Some more upbeat groups would of been good. Hipshaker tent hasn't been confirmed as returning which was always good for upbeat tunes so there's only a few groups for us who like a bit of a boogie, especially when drunk . I'll be at Cirque de la Quirk sock wrestling when Sheryl Crow is playing, way more fun!!
