    Why don't they let this many people in any more?

    Even Glastonbury, which is about as well-oiled a festival machine as you will get, has struggled at times. A couple of years ago when the tracking for Glastonbury got held up at another festival and so was late arriving to be laid to enable access to the CV East fields, we had total traffic gridlock. People couldn't get on site so were backed up on all the approach roads for miles. We set off from South Wales at 2pm and finally got on site at 4am.

    Remember other festivals are also available. No need to make Glastonbury any bigger. I've been going for 40+ years and I've decided to call it a day because of the size and the crowds. You can have just as much fun and a lot less hassle at smaller fests.

    Jah Wobble's Invaders of the Heart

    Tickets have arrived. Hopefully the gas leak in my caravan water heater will be fixed this week and then all set to roll.

    Green Man Festival 2018

    1) Dunno but it's a good name. The festival tries to be green and a giant Green Man goes up in flames at the end. 2) Not that I'm aware of 3) Not that I'm aware of - though isn't every day a dressing up day at a fest?

    Alone v With Others?

    Done both. The easiest times are with our gang as it's great to sit and chill late into the evening and put the world to rights. but I also do a fair few festivals solo. The answer then is to make friends with your neighbours - share a bevvy or two and you are soon with mates.

    Jah Wobble's Invaders of the Heart

    That's a relief Kizzie as next week I'm off to Nice for with family over from Australia and won't have much time on my return to sort things. Will you be going? I'm going up the night before and overnighting at the Caravan Club Site at Cheltenham Racecourse to fill my water barrels, top up my leisure battery and empty the waste tank. Then a leisurely tow round to the festival entrance on Friday morning. I'll be joined by two EFesters plus their partners. Drewstrat and his lady will be tenting and I've persuaded Feral Chile and her old man to dip their toes back into the festival waters and will be offering them accommodation in my caravan. They'll be arriving after work on Friday by which time, hopefully, everything will be set up and the drinks suitably chilled. If you spot my Dethleffs Camper twin axle caravan with, hopefully, an awning attached and a big flagpole, do call over and say hello. Cheers, Grumpyhack (aka Pete).

  12. What disappoints me is that the vast majority of Events Management or Music students posting surveys on here about behaviour at festivals are newbies. I would have hoped that some of them, if they were really into festivals, would have been on here anyway. In the same way I'd expect keen agricultural students to be on farming forums.

    OK I'll go with MUSTANG A clip from one of my favourite music films and Andrew Strong, the lead singer was only 16 when this was filmed. Based an a great book by Roddy Doyle with some brilliant moments.
