  1. Think they are recommending selling on Twickets...good luck
  2. Hoping to be set up around the same time...need to try and take it easy on the beer once the tent is up so dont peak too soon. Will probably go back down to entrance and see if anybody needs a hand
  3. Yeah, really surprised he is subbing...we saw him at Beautiful Days which has a much bigger capacity last year and he was headlining so its almost like we are getting two headliners on the Saturday
  4. Yeah...this time next week...FINALLY! Been packed for ages although my other half is leaving to the last minute (as per usual). Cannot wait.
  5. Getting the tent back into the bag used to be an absolute bastard of a thing! Found since we got an inflatable tent the bag is much better and usually do it at the first attempt.
  6. Ha ha...glad I'm not the only one! I've printed two lots of tickets off, packed everything weeks ago and loaded and unloaded the car twice it make sure I can fit it all in. My other half is dropping me off Thurs to set up then she is coming down with the babby after school Friday...so my panic will stretch until Friday PM when they turn up. Stressful this festival lark! Don't want to mention the 'W' word but its looking very good at the moment.
  7. Guessing might be the field for artists given he appeared to be dj'ing.
  8. Family camping is on the website as 'family and quiet camping'...usually about a 10-15 walk from car park. To be honest nowhere is really far away at Bearded anyway. In terms of loos, normally a few by family but we take one of them little ones you can get from most camping shops for £15-£20 just for any 3am wee's if you dont fancy getting dressed and traipsing to the portaloos in the rain.
  9. Must admit I was a bit indifferent about Placebo, despite loving them back in the day. Been listening to them loads recently and forgot how many great tunes they have, now on my must see list. Lost count of how many times I've seen Flaming Lips live and they have never been anything less than mind blowing Some incredible bands on...gonna be an absolutely cracking weekend!
  10. Expect there might be a queue at 9am on the Thursday and possibly after the schools close Friday but otherwise you should be fine. Avoid camping in Family and you will be fine. The carpark to any of the campsites is not a massive trek...one of the easiest festivals I've ever been to. Would definitely recommend talking your mates into getting there on the Thursday if you can, extra day drinking and the likes of Dreadzone and Craig Charles...why wouldn't you?! Its a great festival...really nice laid back crowd, very few knobheads. Gonna be a cracking weekend...have a good one!
  11. I've always said the last band I want to see at my last festival was Flaming Lips. Although Bearded isnt our last booked festival for this year (and hopefully I might have a few more festival years in me yet), if this is my last Bearded, can't imagine a better way to end it.
  12. We haven't been going that long but for me it is absolutely the highlight of my year...one of the main reasons I can drag my arse out of bed every day to do a job I don't particularly enjoy. Can't think of anything they could do to make it better. A lot of festivals try to grow and get bigger name headliners but lose what made them special. We'll just have to wait and see how it goes I suppose!
  13. Do we think the investment from the Rock City owners will change the festival much? Really hope not. Believe the bars will be run by them now rather than the company that have run them previously. Can't believe after buying the tickets about 2.5 years ago we will be there is less than 2 weeks.
  14. That'll do. Seen a few longer range ones that suggest we might have a dry one...not that it matters but would be nice
  15. Still Bearded Theory tickets available if the refund burns a hole in your pocket!
  16. Think the general concensus on here was that we felt this one might struggle to shift the tickets after the line up was announced. Shame though, never like to see a festival fail and last year was a really good weekend. Maybe in moving the date to Sept they are hoping to avoid clashing with other festivals/people's holidays? Hopefully it will return next year with a stronger line up...I definitely wouldn't rule out going again.
  17. Just seen an email saying Bigfoot has been cancelled until Sept 2023. Shame but can't say I am overly surprised.
  18. Beans on Toast is touring and free that night...
  19. We have a double campbed which we put a double airbed on top of and it works great, much better nights sleep. In terms of airbeds, we've had a couple but tend to find the self inflating ones don't tend to be as good, we had one we used for a couple of festivals but it was pretty shit, barely off the floor. Much better after getting an airbed we inflate ourselves along with a cheap battery operated pump.
  20. If anybody is a loose end on 11th June highly recommend this...cracking all dayer in Wakefield. Been trekking up from Brum for this for a few years now and well worth the £33. Its one of them 'get a wristband and get in multiple venue jobbies'
  21. Honestly, best festival out there mate. Couldn't recommend it highly enough!
  22. Already had Bearded Theory, Camper Calling and Long Division booked. Was hoping to talk my missus into doing Beautiful Days again but she booked Rewind so gotta sit through 3 days of 80's shit!
  23. We decided wasn't worth taking the babby out of school on the Friday and given the change of venue would have meant we wouldnt have got there until late and missed most the Friday so we got a refund. To be fair the organisers were sound. Shame, hopefully the line up will improve next year and we would definitely consider. Have a great one!
  24. Booked for the Libs...would have been nice to get a bigger support but £6 to see Libertines can't complain!
  25. Yeah, from New St its a doddle. Already planned a few in town first, quick one on the train, couple in Cov before we hit the fest
