    I’m in. Tent all sorted. Distance bass in the background. Let’s do this.

    So whose getting ready for next year?

    I generally spend most of my south of the railway as I work, eat and sleep in The Park and relax in the Green fields. Having said that I do skit about like mad trying to get everywhere and see everything.

    So whose getting ready for next year?

    I did 5 years doing many jobs within one venue - basically working with my mates. And then after the 2012 fallow year the next 5 with the next venue - again more working with mates. Now I’m beggining to seriously consider another job change for the run from 2019 to 2023... Or at least look at all my various options.

    @benali I wish you had circled all the best acts before posting the pics.

    Glasto chat

    I have been in the FB group for quite few years as I like to see what the general mood is around a few choice subjects of mine. But the amount of banter (abuse) I've received after posting personal stuff means I have decided to stop posting and just lurk. I have recently really grown to hate it though and it makes me appreciate this forum so much.

    Tech savvy peeps...help required!!

    Looks easy if you get the right person to help. (Not me) A manual version would also work by running 4 fishing wires through a hollow pipe / tube to somewhere off-set. Upon cue you pull one wire and the appropriate magnet retracts, dropping a petal. No batteries or electrics or Arduinos or software needed and the audience gets the same effect.

    I use this bloke: https://elwirecraft.co.uk/ for all my lighting stuff. He also sells through eBay. He is usually at Glasto doing stuff in green fields. Lovely chap.

    Just premade and preset stuff from eBay. You can select over 200 patterns and also the speed. By playing around with the LED lengths you can easily make a nice set of patterns. The first festival i took this too i found a setting that made me feel like a jelly fish.

    I used to spend HOURS on mine I'm a perfectionist. If you devided the 800 quid profit by my hours it would be too low to be honest. But the money I made all went on nice things that I wanted for myself.

    for washing you can buy rings and feed EL wire through them once their sewn in. I tented to attack mine with a sponge and water to get the worst off. I don't make or sew them anymore as I got bored with them. I now make non light up costumes for myself but not blogging now. Also I just got a gas welder to mess about with instead.

    Fair play I thought. There are plenty of people with money that will pay for commissions. The skeleton jobs earned me around £800 profit.

    Here is my most complicated LED white suit that i made 2 years ago. This year i took 5 light up costumes as a) they break, b) there are 5 nights, c) I have crew car pass so can easily take too much stuff. Video contained in my blog........... apologies to Elvis........ http://theflashingfrog.blogspot.com/2016/04/white-chasing-led-suit.html

    I made these costumes for around 5 years and if you want a good job then seeing with cotton is fine. These were attached with hot glue gun.
