My first every "proper" festival. Me and a mate went after finding a flyer for it on our car windshield after Tales of the Jackalope, then proceeded to go to the next 4 in a row. Always had a really good time at it, proper party crowd as mentioned on here already. Although by the last incarnation that I attended (2010) it was definitely getting more and more expensive (as all festivals do I guess).
They did always have a personal alcohol limit as mentioned earlier but it was easy enough to smuggle booze in. Our group always did anyway. Registered!
