    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Ha ha , I think I struck it unlucky with the baracade chair groups lol. Seriously it was a lovely lovely festival , very civilised, but lots of fun too. Lake swimming was awesome, the site is stunning, it’s chilled, plenty of random stuff to keep you smiling, food was good. Beer not , we tried to make random conversation and it was tough .... not saying all the time just people were more closed off for sure. Although we had some great random nights at guilt y pleasures and buttoned down discos ... yeah on reflection I would so go by myself for sure

    Not too many stories MJ, it was just full of people with camping chairs (of all varieties , on the floor kind of lean against ones, normal chairs inflatable sofas' or picnic blanket - it was like DFS for festivals ) - and groups of people barracading themselves into their patch using their empty chairs and setting up camp- now most of the time no bother and walk around, but when the stage was busy and they were infront of the sound booths and near the front etc they were a pain in the backside .....

    I will post my review later, as a first time Latituder, however just wanted to say how good was Oh My God! Its the church - one of my highlights and you could have joined us.... 4 of us and all wondering why people were slightly 'closed off' to random conversation- I'm not in their target market for sure, defo not 16-18 and have no kids Did you swim in the lake - that was my turning point from OK to really enjoyable !

    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Hello all I'm back from my festival jaunts - after going to Latitide over the weekend - my first time - it was an 'enjoyable' Glastonbury substitute, and had good points and not so great .... I never ever want to see another camping chair or picnic blanket in my whole life !

    Any idea where the box office on site is - is it easyto get to in a campervan without masive queues ? Only experience I have had on needing to collect fro Box office was V where it was half hour walk round the other side of the site and half hour back and Glastyonbury where friends missed the whole of the first day driving round the opposite side of site , stuck in queus , to collect tickets, turn around and come back to the correct cv field so needless to say I'm a bit frustrated ;-)

    How many people go to latitude- does anyone here know ? O a differnt frustrating note, my tickets arrived last week but no cv pased so I called last week to be told that they've been printed searateyl and would be here shortly - so called again this week to be told it was printed on 2 May and no idea if or when it would be posted but 5 days before they can print a duplicate for colelction at the box office - so frustrating as they obvisouly have not even sent the original ticket ! Anyone else fighting with ticket arrivals still ?

    oooo I've got rid of the blank quote - awesome I've got through to tm - what a frustration - van tickets printed on 2nd May no sign of them and duplicates have to be collect at box office- I asked for the tracking number --- ooo there's not one - aaaaaahhhhh - oh well it'll all come out in the wash I'm sure

    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Morning all I have no idea why I am quoting above a blank post from Yog - sorry Yog, but I can't get rid of it Plus I'm on hold for ticketmaster to try to find my latittude campervan ticket (got festival tickets a week ago) - I've run three times in the last two days and held on for 25 mins plus with no answer and heard the same 3/4 songs on repeat - if they can't answer their phones please can they put more songs on the loop - I'm bored with Pink screaming 'what about us' at me Bored bored bored bored

    So am I, thought I would cruise in without the excitment, but nope, got full blown butterflies . I love the random stuff at Glastonbury and latitude on paper looks to be a good match :-) mixed with a decent line up for me and I'm super exctied I've done the same festivals for years and years so its so nice to try something new Do the timings all get announced in a progarmme when you get there, and is it small enough to carry around ? That reminds me still no campervan tickets - time to call and chase them

    I'm the same actually really excited to try something new. I've done all sorts of festivals - V (a long story why i kept going), Glastonbury and lcoally Jersey Live/Weekender (v small boutique but good fun) - Latitude looks fun, slightly concerned about the Jemimas (is it really that bad) Seating at the back of the arena ? What stage is in a tent ? the pictures I thought I had seen from BBC introducing the stage was outside in a tiny woodland area (was I looking at wrong pictures ?)
