    Predictions for 2018

    Hookworms were bloody annoying the other year in the Tipi, keeping a very packed tent waiting until the sound man had it JUST so. Don't much care for Feist, but will be interested to see if she joins in with Tweedy

    2017 - How was it for you?

    I was disappointed by the Seitan burgers ordered 2 one came about 15 minutes after the other and was mote very salty greasy coating than burger. Not worth 8.50, and the little beardy guy was a miserable chuffer to boot.

    Been in a bell tent for last few years and love 'em, seriously considering doing an air bnb next year. Mrs will do the driving if we opt for that!

    I feel like a VIP with my early bird. Do I get my own area?

    2017 - How was it for you?

    The worst behaved lot I saw all weekend were a group of very loud chaps all at least 30 who seemed to be vying with each other to see who could be the most offensive. Older groups were also the worst chatterboxes as there were more of them. The teenagers were generally alright as they didn't really bother with the quieter acts and it doesn't really matter if people are chatting and larking about during the louder acts as they are drowned out anyway. I'm a miserable old sod but I enjoyed seeing the young uns enjoying themselves so much. It was the first year our youngest had been without either his brother or sister with him or the nippers of or mates, but we were quite happy for him to wander about on his own getting into the mosh pits having the odd can as it still feels like a very safe festival. When we got home my daughter who has been to a few eotr's asked if I had coped with all the annoying drunk teenagers and I said there were more annoying drunk adults than annoying drunk teenagers. The fact remains though, that overwhelming majority of folk there, drunk or not, are damn fine folk.

    We'll be buying early birds again tomorrow, so they must have got something right. A few negatives: More 6music indypop stuff than I care for, although I enjoyed every single band I saw . Standpipe in the glamping was ridiculous 3 little push button things providing the tiniest trickle of water isn't too good for a field of hundreds. Seemed to be fewer bogs and showers than previously in the glamping Tipi tent sleepers Dickhead quotient up Chatterboxes Seitan Burgers Beer prices All the above had little impact though, overall it was brilliant, saw great bands from a variety of genres, the dickheads are far outnumbered by fine folk, bogs are fantastic and I can't wait for next year.

    Top 5 Performances 2017

    Chickened out and headed for the hills Sunday morning, but top 5 from the sunny days: Aaron Lee Tasjan, lovely music and a bit of a card Daniel Romano: cooler and more energetic than I expected. Courtney Marie Andrews: just bloody wonderful, and shit hot guitarist who looked like the nutty kid from Stand By Me Lucinda Williams: powerful, punchy. Car Seat Headrest. if only for the blow up fish. Great fun.

    Bands for 2017

    As for chatterboxes, they should be banned. Plenty of space to chat elsewhere.

    Weather

    I've been checking bbc, met office, metcheck, accuweather and another one religiously. They change frequently and there is no consistency. I predict a traditional EOTR, mostly warm, plenty of sunshine, with one day being subject to a short spell of light drizzle.

    EOTR Newbie

    There were some theft on the Thursday a few years ago, but it's generally crime free I think. The Honeybells section is overseen by about 6 very friendly but burly blokes, and no is likely to get anywhere near without a wristband, I've seen 'em chuck people out of the queue for showers

    I preferred it smaller too. I think it's about 13,000 punters now with staff, bands and roadies etc taking it past 15,000
